A healthy casserole for a heart-warming meal! 

This dish is so good because it combines the best of both worlds, a homemade meal that remains nutritious and is not too dense. Because of this, you can pretty much add or change anything you want without disrupting the dish too much.

First, you will want to gather the ingredients. You will need wild rice, pearl barley, brown rice, oil, onions, garlic, butter, mushrooms, broth, dry thyme, dry oregano, salt, and pepper.

You can substitute some of these foods if you need to. Try using other ingredients, such as quinoa, bulgur wheat, white rice, Arborio rice, regular barley, green onions, leeks, bell peppers, carrots, vegetable stock, Italian herb mix, and parsley.

Be sure to preheat your oven first so it is ready to go with plenty of time. Mix the wild rice, brown rice, and barley in a bowl. In the meantime, start browning your onion so it softens, then add the garlic, and finally, the rice mix.

Separately, you will want to melt the butter in a skillet, cook the mushrooms in the butter, then add them to the saucepan, and finally combine the broth, herbs, salt, and pepper. Cook it all until it begins to boil.

You will want to simmer everything for few minutes. Then transfer the pot contents to an oven dish and bake for one hour.

Remember that the baking time may vary depending on what ingredients and amounts you use, so you will want to check your casserole throughout the baking process.

Make this casserole even more fulfilling by adding grilled chicken, salmon, or tofu pieces!
