First time trying this. Loved the coating on the broccoli. Couldn’t get it crispy or fully cooked in 15min so cooked it longer. Love the pickled onions. Liked the salad overall. I served it with tandoori spiced parsnip and sweet potato oven “chips”. Will probably do it again.

Thanks for your question. You can buy mixed grain pouches in larger supermarkets. Merchant Gourmet offers a range that is readily available.
