About This Book
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, Job’s 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.

    Whole Grains for Busy People
    Fast, Flavor-Packed Meals and More for Everyone
    Bring whole grains to the table in a flash. We all know that we should be eating more whole grains, an essential foundation of any healthy diet. Making this goal a reality can be a challenge, though, especially on a weeknight. In Whole Grains for Busy People, Lorna Sass, author of the James Beard Award–winning book Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way, shows us how to do it—deliciously. Lorna shares 125 tempting recipes that focus exclusively on quick-cooking whole grains—those that take 30 minutes or less to cook—and on the array of whole-grain products that are now easily found in grocery stores, from tortillas to pastas. Boost the nutrition of any meal with tasty, flavor-packed dishes such as Oat-Crusted Turkey Cutlets with Gingered Cranberry Relish; Barley with Mushrooms, Beef, and Dill Sour Cream; and Bulgur Salad with Tuna, Olives, and Feta. Even sweets get a healthy makeover with whole-grain ingredients so that anyone can feel good about indulging in treats such as Orange-Scented Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peach Blueberry Crumble, or Chocolate Pudding Pie. Lorna guides readers through every step of cooking with whole grains, from reading the labels and selecting the best whole-grain products to using techniques that bring out the maximum flavors in the recipes. Rounded out with whole-grain quick-reference charts, advice on building a well-stocked pantry, suggestions for recipe variations, and a full-color photo insert, Whole Grains for Busy People is the only book home cooks need to make over their family’s diet—without spending their entire lives in the kitchen.
