Everywhere we turn, experts are telling us to eat more whole grains, for heart health (whole grains are of course rich in the fibre that reduces cholesterol), weight loss (they're filling and don't lead to blood sugar spikes), even cancer prevention (whole grains were recently found to be chockfull of antioxidants). Whole Grains for a New Generation capitalises on this growing interest in whole grains, but interestingly, health is not the focus here. Although the health benefits are undeniable, the focus of this book is easy recipes promising great flavour, the health benefits are simply an added bonus. Liana Krisoff shows how easy it is not only to incorporate whole grains into your diet, but really how delicious these grains can be. Here are 175 recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks, Dinner and Dessert, meant for everyday cooking and requiring no special ingredients or equipment. Recipes include Cornmeal Pancakes with Plum Compote; Black Quinoa with Chicken Confit, Mushrooms, and Pickled Red Onion; Calamari and Farro Salad with Mango, Lime, and Basil; Sweet-Spiced Roast Chicken with Barley and Apricots; Whole Roasted Rainbow Trout with Zucchini Couscous; and more. These are delicious recipes that are free of extraneous steps and include make-ahead and time-saving tips as well as other techniques and ideas for easily incorporating whole grains into everyday meals. Canning For A New Generation introduced a younger audience to an age-old method of preserving and cooking that only makes sense given the newfound DIY interest among home cooks. Whole Grains for a New Generation continues in this vein, offering another beautiful package that introduces age-old grains and new fresh flavours to mainstream, young and hip home cooks seeking out healthful and delicious ways of eating.
Everyday delicious whole grain recipes for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, from Canning For A New Generation author Liana Krisoff.; Whole grains are no longer relegated to health food stores. Time magazine, the New York Times, and other major outlets have identified whole grains as a hot new trend.; The topic and the package sells itself; the recipes are easy, accessible, and call for fresh ingredients, this is the way home cooks are preparing meals today, and these are the type of recipes they are seeking out.; While these recipes have healthful benefits (and are even identified as vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free) they are included in the book not for health reasons but because of their amazing flavour. If you like good food, you will love these dishes.; The recipes in this book are organised according to meal, the ingredients are easy to find, and these dishes are meant for every day of the week. This is the only book on whole grains that you will ever need.
I have a few cookbooks but this one of a handful that I turn to regularly. The recipes are healthy, quick and easy to put together. Even when I'm not cooking a recipe from this book, I use the whole grain overview in the beginning to select and cook grains for use in other recipes. An excellent cookbook.
