Made this exactly as the recipe stated. The flavor is okay, but the rice and barley (side note: Just to be clear, I did not use quick cooking barley) turned into goo. The wheat berries still have some good texture to them. This recipe was a major flop! I think it could be a solid recipe if you cook the rice, barley and wheat berries separately and then combine them all together. This was super disappointing since I took the time to soak the wheat and barley.
