Caprese Grain Salad made with whole grains perfect for Meatless Monday | Bob's Red Mill

{Meatless Monday} Caprese Grain Salad

by Cassidy Stockton in Meatless Mondays, Recipes

The fresh flavors of basil and tomato shine brightly with our Whole Grain Medley in this Caprese Grain Salad. This blend combines our favorite whole grains—hard red wheat, brown rice, oats, rye, triticale, barley, kamut and buckwheat—for a wholesome, hearty base for salads, soups and sides. We love using our Whole Grain Medley for summer salads because the blend of grains offer a variety of textures and flavors you just can’t get from using a single grain. If you can’t find it locally, any one of the whole grains listed above can be used in this dish.

This salad can really be a stand-alone meal, but if you want to round it out, we like to serve this with a side of fresh fruit and crusty Italian bread.

The United States of Oatmeal

by Cassidy Stockton in Recipes

Happy Independence Day! Tomorrow will be filled with barbecues, swimming excursions and fireworks in nearly every town across America. Instead of coming up with a patriotic cupcake or perfectly latticed apple pie, we wanted something a little more fun and creative to celebrate.

A few weeks ago, we asked our customers to share their state’s quintessential foods and did you ever deliver! From that list, Sarah from the Bob’s Red Mill Test Kitchen and I put together an oatmeal topping for each state using some of the most appealing foods from each state.

Tell us in the comments what your topping combination would be. Enjoy!

Lemon Mint Freekeh Salad // This bright and herbal salad is an interesting twist on traditional tabbouleh. // Bob's Red Mill // vegan

{Meatless Monday} Lemon Mint Freekeh Salad

by Cassidy Stockton in Meatless Mondays, Recipes

Cracked Freekeh might just be our new favorite whole grain. It cooks so quickly and has such a nice flavor, it’s hard for us to find any reason not to use it. Sure, quinoa cooks up quickly and has a lovely flavor as well, but it’s fun to use something new (even if it’s very, very old). This recipe is a play on tabbouleh that’s fresh and light- perfect for a warm summer evening (which we’ve had plenty of recently).

If you can’t find freekeh, bulgur will work in a pinch, as will quinoa if you need this recipe to be gluten free. 

Lemon Mint Freekeh Salad // This bright and herbal salad is an interesting twist on traditional tabbouleh. // Bob's Red Mill // vegan

Lemon Mint Freekeh Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 cup Organic Cracked Freekeh

  • 1/2 cup Pine Nuts toasted
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 15 oz Garbanzo Beans cooked
  • 2 each medium Red Bell Peppers diced
  • 2 each large Tomatoes diced

Instructions

In a food processor or blender, puree parsley, mint, lemon zest and juice for about 15 seconds. Add the toasted pine nuts, salt and pepper and puree until smooth, another 15 seconds. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Continue to process until smooth.

Oregon Blackberry Pie : For this blackberry pie, we've chosen to use our Whole Wheat Pastry Flour to make the crust.

Oregon Blackberry Pie

by Cassidy Stockton in Meatless Mondays, Recipes

Blackberries are abundant in Oregon. Frankly, they’re abundant anywhere they grow, as is the nature of the blackberry bush, but we like to think Oregon blackberries are something special. It’s a bit early in the year to find them growing wild, but come August there will be no end of blackberry pies, milkshakes, ice cream, crisps, crumbles… you name it! Blackberries have always been one of my favorite berries, even if they have bigger seeds than raspberries and the core of the berry typically stays with the fruit (where a raspberry is hollow on the inside). This just makes them a little more work for some recipes, but if you get good blackberries, they’re incredibly sweet and worth any effort put forth.

For this blackberry pie, we’ve chosen to use our Whole Wheat Pastry Flour to make the crust. The whole grain flour brings a nuttiness to the pie that pairs wonderfully with the sweet filling. Sure, it makes it a wee bit healthier too, but who is eating pie because it’s healthy? (Not us!) If you need a gluten free version, try this Honey Blackberry Pie or simply use our Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix.

For Crust:

For filling:

STEP 1 In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in water, one tablespoon at a time, until dough begins to form. Divide dough and form each piece into a disk. Wrap each piece in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.

STEP 2 In a large bowl, combine berries, sugar, flour, lemon zest and juice.

STEP 3 Preheat oven to 425ºF. On a floured surface, roll first disk into a 12-inch circle. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough into pie plate. Pour berry mixture into pie shell.

STEP 4 Roll out second disk into a 12-inch circle and careful lift and place over filling. Trim dough edges, leaving 1/2-inch overhang. Fold under overhanging dough and crimp edges to seal. Cut four slits in top crust.

STEP 5 Brush top crust with milk and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Place a baking pan on lower rack. Bake on middle rack for 25 minutes. Reduce temperature to 375ºF and bake for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack at least 1 hour.

Storing Cooked Grains and Beans

by Cassidy Stockton in Whole Grains 101

Last year I wrote a post about the best way to store uncooked whole grains, today, I’m sharing how to best store cooked grains and beans. This topic comes up a lot around here because whole grains and dried beans are time consuming to cook and lack of time is one of the most common reasons people cite for not cooking with whole grains or making dried beans.

If you're going to take the time to cook beans and whole grains from scratch, making a big batch and freezing the leftovers will save you time in the long run. Learn how to best store these ingredients. | Bob's Red Mill

Yes, cooking beans and grains is time consuming. That’s why you need to make it worth your effort. Most people who use whole grains often will tell you to make a large batch and store the rest for use throughout the week. But how do you do that? What is the best method for storing cooked grains? My conundrum has always been that I will make a big batch, but I get worried about how long they last in the fridge (what day did I make those again?) or I forget to use them and they go to waste. Then, I discovered that most grains and beans can be frozen with no ill effects.

I freeze my grains in resealable plastic bags in 2 cup portions, small usable amounts that work well for a meal on the fly. They take very little time to defrost (simply plop that sealed plastic bag into a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes and you’re good to go) and take about 40 minutes off your cook time. They taste just as good as freshly cooked grains. Same thing goes for beans. They take a bit longer to defrost, but far less time than cooking from scratch. You can easily use any form of airtight container- plastic, glass, whatever. I like the bags because they take up less room in my freezer, can be easily labeled and can be set in water to defrost quickly.

Grains that work well with the freezer method:

Grains that don’t work very well, are those that tend to be softer when cooked, such as Millet, Amaranth and Teff. They’ll freeze just fine, they just won’t have the same properties as they did before they were frozen. All beans will work well when frozen, though lentils and softer beans may be a bit mushy upon defrosting.

That’s the freezer method. If you are good about using your grains and beans throughout the week- airtight containers in the fridge work fine. Cooked grains and beans will last approximately 3-4 days in the fridge. They’ll last about 2 months in the freezer.

100% Whole Grain Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread using Ivory Wheat Flour perfect for sandwiches, toast and French Toast. | Bob's Red Mill

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

by Cassidy Stockton in Recipes

There is something to be said for homemade bread. It’s certainly more work than picking up a loaf at the store, but I find it incredibly satisfying to knead the dough and watch it rise. Not to mention the alluring smell that fills my house. This 100% whole grain bread uses our Ivory Wheat Flour milled from hard, white wheat. It has the same properties of conventional whole wheat flour, but with a slightly sweeter flavor and lighter color. It’s my go-to whole wheat flour and it works incredibly well in bread and pizza dough.

Slather this bread with butter while it’s still warm or slice and use for sandwiches. Either way, you’ll be so glad you did.

100% Whole Grain Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread using Ivory Wheat Flour perfect for sandwiches, toast and French Toast. | Bob's Red Mill

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

Prep Time: 25 – 30 minutes | Rise Time:  60 – 75 minutes | Cook Time:  30 minutes

Yield: two 9×5-inch loaves

Step 1

Combine water, yeast and 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Organic Hard White Wheat Flour in a large mixing bowl and let rest for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Add honey, oil, salt and 4 cups of flour to the yeast mixture.  Mix until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Step 3

If using a dough hook, increase speed to medium and mix 7 – 10 minutes until a smooth and elastic dough has formed.  If mixing by hand, knead 10 – 13 minutes.  If dough continues to stick to the bowl, add up to ½ cup additional flour.

Step 4

Transfer to a clean, oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.  Meanwhile, oil two 9×5-inch loaf pans.

Step 5

Turn out risen dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into two equal pieces.  Form into two loaves and place each loaf in a prepared pan.  Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 6

Bake loaves in preheated oven until top crust is golden, about 30 minutes.  Immediately remove loaves from pans to cool.

Mujaddara | Bob's Red Mill || gluten free, vegan, whole grain

{Meatless Mondays} Mujaddara with Spiced Yogurt

by Cassidy Stockton in Gluten Free, Meatless Mondays, Recipes

Mujaddara is a traditional Middle Eastern dish that has deep roots dating back at least eight hundred years. It’s a simple dish of rice and lentils that are lightly seasoned. Originally billed as peasant food, this humble dish is my new favorite comfort food. It is so easy to make (if a little time consuming to cook the rice and lentils) and even easier to eat. It’s amazing warm, but also pretty tasty cold.

We’ve added a spiced yogurt to top this off if you want a little more flavor. This dish can really stand alone, but it can be paired with roasted cauliflower and warmed pita bread if you want to round out a full meal.

Mujaddara | Bob's Red Mill || gluten free, vegan, whole grain

Mujaddara with Spiced Yogurt

Prep Time:  15 minutes | Cook Time:  30 minutes | Yield: 4 servings

Mujaddara

Spiced Yogurt

  • ½ cup Greek Yogurt
  • ½ tsp ground Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground Coriander
  • ¼ tsp Paprika
  • ¼ tsp Chili Powder
  • 3 Tbsp chopped Mint
  • Juice and Zest of ½ Lemon
  • ¼ tsp Salt

Step 1

Sort and rinse Bob’s Red Mill Brown Lentils and Long Grain Brown Rice separately.

Step 2

Combine rice, 2 cups of water and ½ tsp salt in a medium pot.  Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until soft, about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Combine lentils with remaining 4 cups of water and ½ tsp salt in a medium pot.  Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.

Step 4

In a large sauté pan, heat 2 Tbsp oil and butter over medium-low heat.  Add onions and remaining 1 tsp of salt and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.  Increase heat to medium and cook until very soft and brown, about 20 – 25 minutes.  When onions are well browned, add remaining 1 Tbsp oil and increase heat to high.  Cook, without stirring, until onions are crispy, 3 – 4 minutes.

Step 5

When rice and lentils have fully cooked, drain off water and combine cooked grains together.  Add fried onions and mix well.  Serve with spiced yogurt.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Oatmeal Quick Bread | Bob's Red Mill

Oatmeal Quick Bread- Gluten and Dairy Free

by Sarena Shasteen in Gluten Free, Recipes

Who says you can’t have bread just because you can’t eat gluten? Not this girl for sure. Let’s just say I make a lot of bread around here for a family that’s gluten free. The breads I make range from kind of complicated to really easy. Today, I’m sharing a really easy recipe with you. I came up with this jewel out of a need for a quick hearty bread to go with our Sunday brunch, as well as, needing something easy that my husband can throw together when he’s needing bread with dinner. This oatmeal quick bread goes really well with a salad or bowl of soup. It has an amazingly crunchy crust on the outside with a beautifully dense chewy interior highlighted by a wholesome nutty flavor from the oatmeal. For brunch, we served it with butter and a drizzle of honey. It was delicious!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Oatmeal Quick Bread | Bob's Red Mill

Gluten and Dairy Free Oatmeal Quick Bread

(makes about a 1 pound loaf)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Mix well with a fork. Next add the cold butter to the flour mixture and cut it in with a fork until thoroughly combined and the mixture resembles a course meal. Next add the milk, eggs and vinegar to the flour mixture using a fork or a rubber spatula. Stir until well combined. Refrigerate the dough for 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. When the oven is ready, using the rubber spatula, form the dough into a ball and then dump it onto the parchment paper. Using the spatula, even out the dough ball to for a circle. Cut a cross into the dough and then sprinkle the top with the reserved oatmeal. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes or until slightly browned and the crust sounds hollow when tapped. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes then slice and serve.
