1 pound Nash’s triticale berries
2 bunches lacinato or red kale leaves, ribs and stems removed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 cups veggie broth
2 medium shallots, sliced
1/2 tablespoon butter
3 cloves garlic, sliced
6 ounces Parmesan cheese
Wash berries and soak them overnight. Cook as you would rice (1 part grain to 1 1/2 parts water) for about 1-2 hours or until tender. Drain and coat with a bit of olive oil. Coarsely chop kale and put aside. In large sauce pan, warm oil on medium head and add shallots. Cook about 2 minutes, then add kale and wilt together for 2 minutes, then add garlic. Saute 30 seconds, stirring occasionally, then add 4 cups of the broth and simmer. Simmer about 10 minutes or until broth is mostly absorbed, then add butter, 4 ounces Parmesan cheese and cooked triticale. Adjust to remaining stock, and more butter, salt and pepper. Garnish with chives and Parmesan cheese as desired.
