I’m a big fan of Kashi products (most of the time). Today, I made some of the Kashi Seven Grain Pilaf and added some stir fried vegetables to the mix. (See photo below)
Here is the thing, though. Whenever I make any sort of grain product according to the package directions, it usually ends up mushy or watery or both. Today, was the both category. I don’t like mush. I like my grains to be plump and have some structure to them. I grew up eating rice and this was never a problem. I don’t think we ever used directions for anything, but tonight is further proof that I should never ever follow the cooking directions for the water to grain ratio on packages. I should just go with my instinctual knowledge.
