OK, before we get to the grain…it’s Organic Harvest Month! Tune in to ABC Channel 9 (WCPO) at 10AM today and learn different ways to celebrate from Lula! Now…on to some MORE good stuff:
Fun, tasty other Grains that do contain some gluten:
Rye Berries – Low Gluten, one of my faves. LOVES me some rye and pumpernickel breads!
Wheat Berries – This is the whole kernel with bran and germ intact. Chewy, sweet, and nutty.
Barley – eat this hull-less or hulled, but not pearled – it contains more bran that way.
Farro – This is an ancient wheat grain that is great in salad and soup – you can even make “farroto” with it – in place of risotto … it’s very creamy when the starch releases!
Freekeh (or Farika) – This is smoked or roasted under-ripe wheat that makes an EXCELLENT alternative tabbouleh.
Spelt – This is a fun one – used in ALOT of our breads. Spelt has a smooth shiny outer layer that stays intact when cooked. Think Sautes.
There! Get your HEALTHY grain on! For more tips and tidbits click here
