Flustered by freekah? Unsure about amaranth? Confused by quinoa? This is the guide for you.
You’ve probably heard all about the health benefits of whole grains, but they can be a little intimidating to cook with if you don’t know how. This guide from Greatist.com will tell you everything you want to know about identifying, preparing, and cooking grains.
We like to prepare a big batch at the beginning of the week and store it in the fridge so that it’s ready for use in recipes whenever the mood strikes.
What to do with your grains when they’re cooked? Their subtle flavour makes them an ideal companion for stronger spices and sauce. They’ll never overpower a dish, but will add staying power to your meals.
We love using grains as a booster for our salads, slow cooked in the crockpot for breakfast, and simply flavoured with a bit of butter and salt for a bed time snack.
