Feast for the eyes! There is something very pleasing both to the eye and
the palate about a mixture of green vegetables and rice. All the grains
should cook in the same amount of time (30 to 40 minutes). Adjust cooking
time for grains if necessary. Add extra crunch by mixing the parsley with
wheatgerm or bran buds before using as directed.

1. Trim the green beans of stems and marks. Cut once lengthwise (optional)
and cut into 1-inch lengths or slightly longer.

2. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan, and saute the vegetables for 5
minutes. Add the spices, nuts, and rices and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the
soy sauce and broth, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer
until all the liquid has been absorbed and the grains are fully cooked:
from 30 to 40 minutes depending on the combination of grains you have

3. Stir in the yogurt or cream, and half the parsley. Add pepper, adjust
salt. Transfer to a warmed serving dish, sprinkle with remaining parsley,
and serve.
