I'm making this with broccoli tonight... posting it here because it's a worthwhile recipe that uses grains in their more natural form... hard to find on the Internet and this way, I will have it and now, so do you!

Roasted Wheat and Celery Au Gratin (6 portions)
2 cups chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup bulgar wheat (uncooked)
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup grated cheese of your choice
1 cup breadcrumbs
- Saute celery, green onions, celery seed, salt & bulgar in the oil in a flameproof casserole dish. Saute until celery is soft.
- Combine milk with the water, and add to celery mixture. Simmer partially covered 15 minutes, until most but not all liquid is absorbed.
- Add 3/4 cup cheese and stir it in; spread the rest of the cheese on top. Sprinkle bread crumbs, dot with butter.
- Bake at 325F for 15 minutes, until firm and sizzling a bit at the sides.
