Thanksgiving will be here soon! And this is one of my favorite recipes. It’s super easy to make, and I can set the table and prepare the rest of the meal while the kamut is cooking. Also, if pressed for time, it’s possible to make this dish a day in advance and heat up right before company comes. Just wait to garnish with the fresh herbs until serving. Bon appetit!
