Method: 

Heat oil in a large, deep saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently until golden, about 5 minutes. Add grains and cook, stirring until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in broth, greens (no need to thaw them first), vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil. Nestle cheese rind in center of grains. Cover the pan, adjust heat and simmer until grains are tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes before serving.
