Whether you plan to serve meat this season or not, stuffing is a perfect side dish for any holiday meal. Using sturdy grains such as Kamut khorasan wheat not only adds some great texture to your stuffing, it also makes it a more balanced dish thanks to Kamut’s naturally-occurring high levels of protein and minerals. Make sure to add this to your holiday men--you won’t regret it!

- ½ cup Kamut berries
- ½ cup wild rice
- ½ cup spelt berries
- 1 cup pecan pieces
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1 cup carrot, diced

- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

To prepare the grains, put grains in a large pot and cover with water to 3 inches above grains. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off heat, cover pot and allow grains to sit for 1 hour; drain into a colander and rinse under cold running water.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spread pecans on a baking sheet and toast for 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Over medium heat, warm olive oil and add onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add carrot, fennel, celery, garlic, safe, salt to taste and water. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add prepared grains to vegetables and stir in toasted pecans, parsley, and pepper to taste and serve.
