The restaurant usually combines six grains in a hearty pilaf; basmati rice,
wehani rice, and wild rice, along with barley, black barley, and wheat or
rye berries. All of these grains cook in about the same amount of time,
although some are softer or firmer than others, leading to a diversity of
texture. Try this pilaf with your own selection of grains. Eric Tucker

1) In a medium, heavy saucepan, cook the onion, carrot, celery and stock
over medium heat until the vegetables are just softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the sage, thyme, marjoram, pepper, and salt. Add all the grains and
stir constantly for about 2 minutes to toast them.

2) Add the mustard, tamari, and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to
medium-low, cover, and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes, until the liquid is
absorbed. Remove from heat, and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
