I know what you’re thinking: Waking up on a Wednesday, cooking a pot of grains, and chopping onions and garlic is just not reality. I hear you (and I'm only cooking for me and my husband; we don’t even have kids yet).
But I want to make a case for this dish, in the spirit of prepping for an excellent, inspiring breakfast ahead of time. If you start this recipe on Sunday afternoon, you'll be set for the week ahead and it’ll take you far less than an hour. It’s one of those nice investments in your future self, and it's guaranteed to be a reprieve from standard weekday morning fare.
