Kashi is a mixture of whole oats, rye, brown rice, wheat berries, buckwheat, barley, triticale and sesame seeds. All the grains retain their fiber, bran and germ, and are an excellent source of protein, fiber, carbohydrates and minerals, with only 35 calories per oz. Kashi is available either uncooked or as a ready-to-eat breakfast cereal. Here the uncooked variety is used in a stir-fry with vegetables.

Mixed Grains:

  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 1 lg. garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder
  • 1 c. Kashi or other uncooked mixed-grain cereal
  • 1/2 c. lentils
  • 1 (2 inch) piece cinnamon stick
  • 2 (14 1/2 oz.) cans low-salt vegetable broth
  • Salt


  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 c. broccoli flowerets (about 1 lg. bunch)
  • 2 c. sliced carrots (about 3)
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1/4 inch thick strips
  • 2 c. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 c. sliced green onions (about 4)
  • 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. oriental sesame oil

GRAINS: Heat oil in heavy large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until onion is just golden brown, about 6 minutes. Add curry powder and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Mix in Kashi, lentils and cinnamon stick. Stir until grains are lightly coated with oil, about 2 minutes. Add broth and bring to boil. Cover and cook until grains are tender and liquid is absorbed, about 35 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with salt. Cover and keep warm.

VEGETABLES: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in wok or heavy large skillet over high heat. Add ginger and garlic and cook until just golden, stirring constantly, about 10 seconds. Add broccoli and carrots and stir-fry 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Add water, cover and cook until carrots are almost crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.

Turn heat to high. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, red bell peppers, mushrooms and green onions. Stir-fry until vegetables are heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add soy sauce and sesame oil; toss thoroughly. Transfer grains to platter. Spoon vegetables over and serve. 6 servings.
