Grains as Mains by Jodi Moreno, Sarah W. Caron

Cooking with grains is a flourishing global trend. Ancient grains, such as bulgur wheat, spelt, wheat berries, and teff, are popular for the texture and flavor they bring to dishes, as well as their health benefits. This visually stylish and comprehensive cookbook satisfies today's worldwide appetite for tasty, versatile, and healthy grains, with more than 150 fresh and exciting recipes.

Grains as Mains is not a vegetarian cookbook, but the majority of the recipes are meat-free, with suggestions for "choosing your own protein" accompaniments. It features a wide range of recipes, many of which are gluten-free. Where relevant, graphic devices show how to swap your grains for easy recipe variations. With warm and evocative photography and step-by-step techniques, this book takes a fresh approach to cooking with century-old grains.

The book is for the adventurous cooks eager to experiment with unusual and exciting ingredients, and health-conscious cooking enthusiasts who are looking for delicious new styles of recipes. Featured grains include cornmeal (polenta), bulgur wheat, quinoa, millet, barley, spelt, wheat berries, amaranth, farro, buckwheat, khorasan wheat (kamut), teff, sorghum, and freekeh.

1. To Anonymous who rated the ebook based on the preview...REALLY? Just because you're not getting what you want in the SAMPLE doesn't mean it deserves only a 1. Good grief. Rate the BOOK, not the sample. 2. A skim through some of the recipes has me excited to try these! We've been trying new grains but it's been hard to find new things to do with them to keep them interesting. This book has them. The rating should be closer to 4 1/2 because of some minor navigation issues (and to be fair, I'm on my smaller phone rather than a tablet where the navigation might not be as much of a problem), but the recipes themselves appear to use fairly common ingredients (at least for us, and we're in the income bracket that can't afford exotic or unusual ingredients). I like the options presented at the end of some of the recipes (ideas for using a different grain or fruit or whatever) and the images are gorgeous. The directions are fairly clear and both cups and metric units are shown. Hoping the actual recipes come out as nice as shown!
