Delicious and Nutritious Grain Recipes


The grains I love and incorporate into my meals are amaranth, farro, quinoa, steel cut oats, and barley. All have a delicious nutty flavor ranging from mild to more pronounced and they have different textures from semi-firm to firm. If you are unfamiliar with working with whole grains, select a few different sized ones; play and try each of them to see which ones you like best. They all cook up similar to brown rice. Plus they make easy dishes for a quick dinner!

Recipes include specific measurements, but as a general rule 1 part whole grains takes 2 parts liquid depending on the grain you are preparing and the firmness desired. Don't worry too much! The instructions are also on the package.


Whole grains can be purchased at health food stores and grocery stores. Grains are packed with important vitamins, minerals and fiber. This is why they are highly recommended by doctors and dieticians. Nine to thirteen servings of fruits, vegetables and whole grains everyday is the recommended requirement for a healthy diet. Also remember these plant products are cholesterol-free. Try me easy dishes next time you need a healthy quick dinner.
