This book is great. It covers countless grains, most of which I have handy, and those that I don’t are shown at end of recipe as perhaps a substitute for that particular recipe. It helps one think out of the box which I appreciate. I can find no major fault with this book. Perhaps some would want a pic with every recipe along w/nutritional breakdowns; there are some pics and common sense says that using whole grains is going to be nutritionally more sound and less caloric b/c of the fiber that lesser grains don’t have. The book is broken down by category–dinner, breakfast/brunch, side dishes, desserts, soups and salads–salads being especially good now, at this very hot time of the year. These are dishes that are easily served and eaten at room temp and good for bringing to a friend’s house without it suffering in transit in taste or appearance. Many dishes need to be served directly from oven to table, not these. I made a farro salad tonight and changed up the herbs/veggies by adding what was in my garden. It had an Italian flare so I added some cut-up sun-dried tomatoes from the fridge too. I bought some hulled barley online, more fiber than pearled, and used that in one of the stir fry recipes. I swapped out chicken for shrimp. The flavor base in the ‘sauce’ was tasty w/just the right kick, and the addition of barley into the stir fry, rather than using a bed of rice, allowed the sauce to thicken w/o need of a cornstarch slurry. I appreciated that timesaver too. The author is also an expert on pressure cooking, so there is a section in here on how long to cook what grains…I find it a helpful reference for cooking raw, packaged beans and other grains in my digital pressure cooker. All in all, I have tagged many pages and look forward to trying more recipes. What’s more–because these recipes are so simple and uncomplicated, they are pleasureable to make.
