Grain Recipes

Grain Recipes

Grain and pulses are among our oldest and most natural foods. Millions of years ago, Man the Hunter augmented meager flesh supplies with the seeds of grasses and podded plants, and later began to cultivate these plants around their primitive homes. In more recent history, families were glad of food which could be dried and stored to use during the hard winter months when fresh food was not available. Housewives found that dried beans and peas kept well and could be made into tasty soups and stews to provide nourishment and variety in the days before canning and freezing of fruit and vegetables became commonplace.

Medical evidence has shown that we need plenty of fiber and must avoid excessive animal fats, so that cereals and pulses are again being recognized as useful and attractive foods. Pulses and grains can form a complete meal, for they complement each other to produce complete protein requirements (pulses alone are rich sources of protein, but mixed with cereal grains are a total substitute for animal protein).

Cooking times for grains - Forget about pressure cookers and all the complicated, convoluted recipes you have have read for cooking grains. All you really need is a big pot with a tight-fitting lid, a pinch of salt, and a few cups of water. Rinse grains just before cooking, then combine about one part grain with two to four parts water - depending on the grain - in a heavy pan. Add a pinch of unrefined sea salt, boil the grain for 5-10 minutes, lower the heat, and cover and simmer for 20-40 minutes. Most grains may also be soaked to shorten the cooking time or toasted first to enhance their natural nutty flavor. Cook extra for quick leftover meals and second-day salads and try combining longer-cooking grains, like barley and wild rice, or shorter-cooking grains, like millet and quinoa for an interesting combination of textures and tastes.
