Thick, hearty, and nutritious.
Nestled in some curly greens and then garnished, this multi-grain salad or side dish fits the bill for holiday or family meals. The key to its success: know your grains and the time needed to cook them. Harder grains take longer; it’s that simple. If you are using wheat berries, barley, wild rice, brown rice or bulgur, they will require more cooking time than quinoa, amaranth or millet. With wheat berries being the hardest grain in this combination, I soaked them an hour and a half prior to adding them to the other grains. I didn’t soak the bulgur as I prefer more texture. This grain combination is one you want to keep in mind for your future creations. Serve it in endive for a tasty appetizer with chopped fruit and nuts.
A delicious soup that's easier to make than it is to pronounce!
Need a holiday seasonal drink that will be sure to impress your guests? Here is the perfect holiday drink for you. Made with Lilikoi juice, which is also known as Passion fruit, this drink is a great way to add a hint of Hawaii to your cold holiday nights. If you can’t find Lilikoi juice, you can also substitute pineapple juice in instead.
Originating in the South, this long time favorite has had a variety of names and history of its origin. When it was introduced to me, I was told it was so named because folks would make a“pig” of themselves eating it. Yes, it is that good.
Don't let the name fool you. This can be made in the morning too.
