Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way

by Lorna Sass

We all know we should be eating more whole grains (the "good carbs"). But what exactly are whole grains? and can they taste good?

In Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way, bestselling cookbook author Lorna Sass introduces readers to elegant, irresistible whole-grain recipes for soups, salads, main courses, desserts, and more.

After the release of the FDA's 2005 Dietary Guidelines, when asked what they would like to add to their diets, more people said "whole grains" than anything else, according to an article in the New York Times. A diet rich in whole grains can reduce the risk of certain cancers, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. But how do you start eating more whole grains on a daily basis?

Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way is an extensive guide to everything readers need to know. Sass introduces home cooks to dozens of varieties-including amaranth, barley, buckwheat, hominy, popcorn, polenta, brown rice, quinoa, red rice, black rice-and many more. She shares tips for buying and storing these grains as well as the best and simplest way to cook each of them.

Some of the flavor-packed recipes included in Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way are:

  • Farro Risotto with Butternut Squash, Ham, Sage, and Toasted Walnuts (page 146 of the book): Perfect for Thanksgiving-the ham adds substance, and the butternut squash melts into a sweet sauce that coats the grains an autumnal orange.
  • Saffron-Basmati Rice with Chicken in Garam Masala Sauce (page 180): This is an elegant-but-easy Indian-inspired dish. Using a blend like garam masala and mixing it into coconut milk creates complex flavor in a flash.
  • Wild Rice and Turkey Salad with Pear Dressing: Here is a fetching main dish salad to prepare when your refrigerator overflows with holiday leftovers. It also makes a festive contribution to a potluck any time of year, prepared with store-bought roast turkey.
  • Hominy Minestrone with Basil Pesto: Hominy adds a toothsome twist to this classic Italian soup, offering more robust flavor and texture than the traditional elbow pasta.
  • Whole-Wheat-Yogurt Waffles with Blueberries: These waffles have a moist, tangy interior thanks to the yogurt and juicy blueberries.
  • Raspberry Jam Cookies (page 284): These tasty cookies are made of oats and whole-wheat pastry flour.

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned pro, Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way offers the chance to incorporate healthful whole grains into your diet with innovative, tasty recipes for every meal of the day.
