 I bought a bag of Harvest Grains Blend at Trader Joe’s. It’s combination of Israeli couscous (also known as pearl couscous), red quinoa, baby garbanzo beans, and orzo. The mix of whole grains, especially quinoa, is very good for you. It makes a delicious, hearty and satisfying soup that you can customize with your own blend of vegetables.
