 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  C             Wild rice
      1/2  C             Pearl barley
      1/2  C             Brown rice
      1/4  C             Oil
    1      Lg            Onion -- thinly sliced
    4                    Garlic cloves -- chopped
    4      Tb            Unsalted butter or margarine
                         - OR- Oil
      1/2  Lb            Mushrooms -- thickly sliced
    3 1/2  C             Broth
    1      T             Crushed dried thyme
      1/2  T             Crushed dried oregano
                         Salt & pepper -- to taste
 
 Combine grains in a mixing bowl and set aside. Pour the oil into a 2-3 qt. 
  casserole which is safe for both stovetop and oven cooking, and place on  
 med. heat. When hot , saute onion and garlic until tender and translucent, 
  about 5-6 mins. Add the mixed grains and saute for 1 min., stirring  
 constantly.
 Meanwhile melt butter or margarine (if using) in a separate pan on med. 
 high heat. When hot , add mushrooms and saute quickly, stirring 
 frequently,  until the shrooms are hot and have just absorbed the “butter” 
 (about 1
 min.). Immediately remove from heat.
 Add the broth, herbs, and mushrooms to the casserole with the onions and  
 grains, and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover  
 tightly (use aluminum foil between pot and cover if necessary for a good
 seal), and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hr.
