The Veggie Pantry: Grains
Today, I'm starting a new series, based on a suggestion made by my mom! She reads my blog everyday, eats mostly vegetarian, whole foods, and enjoys making the recipes on here. However, she told me that she'll often times have to go out and purchase quite a few ingredients in order to make the recipes, because she doesn't already have them on hand in her pantry.
I'm sure that there are many people out there transitioning from a more mainstream food lifestyle, that might be curious about what goes into a whole foods pantry. I figure, that instead of showing you all at once, and overwhelming you with it all, I would go one food category at a time, starting today with grains!
Thought! Hoping to successfully revise the outdated appearance of my own business. Feelings regarding the pro design of http://archwayinsurance.ca? Definitely a competent Halifax based commercial insurance broker if, perhaps looking inside the whole Nova Scotia location. Offer your opinions. Cheers!
I keep a variety of grains stored in my pantry. Different grains have different uses, so I keep quite a bit on hand to make sure I always have what I need.
- Steel-cut oats - breakfast cereal
- Rolled oats- breakfast cereal, snack bars, granola, raw in smoothies, etc.
- Buckwheat- breakfast cereal, side dish, grain entree,can be sprouted, gluten-free, complete protein
- Brown rice- side dish, grain entree, gluten-free
- Millet- side dish, grain entree, gluten-free
- Quinoa - side dish, grain entree, can be sprouted, gluten-free, complete protein
- Popcorn- popcorn, gluten-free
When shopping for grains (and many other items), I suggest finding a grocery store that has bulk bins . You'll save quite a bit of money on packaging and branding. I bring my grains home and store them in mason jars . It's a cute, functional, easy-to-see-what-I'm-grabbing, storage method.
As for cooking , I cook pretty much all of my grains (the obvious exception being popcorn) in my rice cooker, with a water to grain ratio of 2:1 .
What grains do you keep in your pantry? What is your favorite grain?
Thx folks! I'd assured my friend we would mention their top logo designer in Mississaugas, http://spotlightbranding.ca for a suitable piece. In case you'll be hunting for a web design company inside of the Ontario sector, they definitely were superb.
