I don’t know why I didn’t pick up this book sooner and now I’m loathe to give it away! Seriously- this book is awesome and I’m so excited to share it with one lucky winner. The Complete Whole Grains Cookbook by Judith Finlayson is the perfect thing for a whole grain beginner or anyone who just wants to explore cooking with whole grains.
Not only does it have 150 recipes that cover everything from breakfast to dessert, but it has tips and tricks for each. Finlayson also includes the nutrition facts and health benefits of each recipe, which is a huge bonus in my book. She has tips for the rice cooker, slow cooker and pressure cooker for each of the whole grains and a brief synopsis of important things to know about each. It doesn’t contain as many pictures as I prefer in a cookbook, but it does have quite a few beautiful images where it counts- such as what rye berries really look like.
This is definitely not geared towards those on a special diet, so I wouldn’t recommend it for a gluten free eater or someone who is strictly vegan. But for the rest of you all-purpose cooks, this book gets you started right with cooking all of those funny grains you keep hearing about such as quinoa, spelt, amaranth, and sorghum to name a few.
