Whole Grains Every Day, Every Wayby Lorna Sass
Synopses & Reviews
Thanks to the low-carb movement and the updated USDA food pyramid, we all know we should be eating more whole grains (the “good carbs”). But what exactly are whole grains? And how can we make them not only what we should eat, but what we really want to eat? In Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way, bestselling cookbook author Lorna Sass demystifies whole grains with a thorough grain-by-grain primer followed by more than 150 irresistible recipes.
In this extensive guide to the wide range of fantastic whole grains available-many of which are gluten-free-Sass introduces home cooks to dozens of grains, including amaranth, barley, buckwheat, hominy, popcorn, polenta, Jobs tears, millet, oats, quinoa, brown rice, red rice, black rice, rye, triticale, sorghum, teff, farro, grano, green wheat, kamut, spelt, wheat berries, and wild rice. She shares tips for buying and storing these grains as well as the best and simplest way to cook them.
And then there are the boldly flavored, contemporary recipes that will truly change the way you cook, covering soups, salads, main courses, and side dishes all the way to quick breads, cookies, and desserts, with a groundbreaking section on whole-grain baking outlining tempting, healthy options. Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way will delight carnivores and vegetarians alike with recipes such as Farro Salad with Prosciutto and Asparagus, Masa Harina-Beef Casserole, Posole with Pork and Chipotle, Millet with Gingered Beets and Orange, and Coconut-Black Rice Pudding.
This is the book America has been asking for: the definitive guide that will make it easy and delicious for us to incorporate healthful whole grains into our diets with innovative recipes for every meal of the day.
"In this incredibly thorough, A-to-wheat berries guide to whole grains, Sass (Cooking Under Pressure) begins with a thoughtful and extensive primer on whole grains, including detailed profiles and basic cooking instructions for each. She covers no fewer than 20 kinds of rice (Bhutanese red, black Japonica) and just as many types of wheat before launching into recipes for soups and salads, main courses, side dishes, breakfast foods and desserts. The dishes are surprisingly tempting and varied, and the entries are more sophisticated than one might expect in a whole grain book. Thai Chicken Soup with Chinese Black Rice; Quinoa and Calamari Salad; Corn Polenta with Sausage and Peppers; Popcorn-Crusted Catfish; and Wild Rice Medley with Braised Chicken in Balsamic-Fig Sauce. And the sweets and desserts, like Chocolate Chip-Hazelnut Cookies, Popcorn-Almond-Caramel Balls, and Tarragon-Scented Rustic Nectarine Tart, prove that incorporating whole grains into the diet can be downright decadent."
