Multi-Grain Cherry Pilaf
1/3 cup wild rice
1/3 cup wheat berries
1 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons dry rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/3 cup brown rice
1 cup dried tart cherries
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted

Rinse wild rice and wheat berries under cold running water. Drain well. In a medium saucepan, cook onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat about 4 minutes or until tender.

Stir brown rice into wild rice mixture. Return to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 45 minutes, or until grains are tender. (If excess liquid remains in saucepan after grains are tender, remove lid and simmer until liquid evaporates.)
