Easy to digest, less likely to cause gut inflammation, tolerable for those with gluten sensitivity these are just a few reasons why the ancient grain known as einkorn is quickly becoming one of the most popular grains/flours on the market–not to mention its sweet flavor and silky texture. How does one prepare this ancient grain? Popular food bloggers, Tim and Shanna Mallon of Food Loves Writing, bring einkorn right to your table with this beautiful whole food cookbook that includes over 100 recipes, all featuring the world’s most ancient grain.

Wonderful Einkorn Cookbook!
It seems as if every time you buy something, you are bombarded with requests to complete an online survey or to review the product, and I dislike this so much that I almost never review products I buy, even if I truly would like to recommend it to others. Well, after buying The Einkorn Cookbook, I have decided that I just have to mend my ways.
I have followed Shanna Mallon’s blog, Food Loves Writing, off and on for a few years. I first heard about einkorn flour on Food Loves Writing, and I really wanted to try it since I knew that my body was having reactions to modern wheat, but I just couldn’t justify spending that much money on a bag of flour. It took another year for me to impulsively buy a bag of einkorn flour at Whole Foods. I justified it as a one-time extravagance to satisfy my curiosity. After baking with einkorn, I was completely blown away by the depth and complexity of flavor. Einkorn flour is incredibly delicious. I already knew that it was more nutritious and easier to digest, but the wonderful flavor is what really hooked me. I decided right then and there that I just could not cook with any other flour.
I’ve only been cooking with einkorn for two months. It is somewhat trickier to cook with (at least for a newcomer like me) because the dough tends to be stickier. It was hard for me to convert regular flour recipes to einkorn flour. I really needed help. I decided to buy The Einkorn Cookbook, and I am so thankful that I did. It truly is a wonderful resource. I have only tried two recipes from the book and they were both easy and delicious. The Soft Sandwich Loaf was incredible. The combination of milk, coconut oil, and butter makes this such a moist and utterly delightful bread. This is now my go-to bread. If you only bake with a sourdough starter as I do, it’s very easy to convert this recipe to a sourdough bread. The Sourdough Pizza Crust was also delicious. I am looking forward to trying the Basic Pasta Dough recipe, as my previous attempt at einkorn pasta ended in disaster.
If you are using Einkorn flour, then The Einkorn Cookbook is a wonderful resource for you, and I highly recommend that you buy it. If you are not currently using Einkorn flour and know that your body is having negative reactions to modern wheat, then you really should buy a bag of einkorn flour (Tropical Traditions has the lowest price I’ve seen so far – $5.75) and The Einkorn Cookbook. It will change the way you look at wheat forever.
