Recipes From Grain Power

Hot on the heels of sisters Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming’s award-winning Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood and Quinoa Revolution, comes Grain Power, a cookbook that eschews wheat flours. With gluten sensitivities on the rise and more scrutiny placed on the role of carbs in our diets, this book demystifies various ancient grain alternatives such as chia, millet and kamut, and explains how to incorporate them into everyday meals. Green and Hemming focus on simplicity, making sure that their recipes are easily accessible for those just starting on a gluten-free diet. In addition, the book shares details on different ancient grain flavour notes and facts. For a satisfying and healthy dinner, try the Oven-Roasted Herb Chicken Over Tangy Apple & Cabbage Quinoa.
