Grain Mains: 101 Surprising and Satisfying Whole Grain Recipes for Every Meal of the Dayby Bruce Weinstein
Synopses & Reviews
A long-overdue cookbook that takes whole grains from “good for you” side dish to sophisticated and satisfying main course.
We all know that choosing whole grains over processed ingredients is better for our health, yet the likes of millet, quinoa, and barley are still stuck on the culinary sidelines. Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough bring these unheralded culinary superstars to the center of the plate, with more than 100 recipes showing that their range of textures and flavors is greater than any other food group, theyre incredibly versatile, theyre economical, and they can anchor a meal.
Readers will be surprised at how easily and creatively whole grains can be used as the base for breakfast, dessert, and elegant entrees: Baked Barley Grits with Apples and Sausage will far outdo the standard cornmeal; and Millet Burgers with Olives, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Pecorino wont leave anyone missing the meat. Tips on quick-cooking grains or precooking ahead of time make cooking with these hearty staples practical for weeknights, and many are appropriate (or can be modified) for vegetarian and vegan diets.
Grain Mains is a modern manifesto for whole grains, with inventive and tantalizing recipes.
