Ancient Grains

A Note From Annie Jefferson

From the more commonly recognized barley, spelt and farro, to the lesser known Kamut, teff and sorghum, ancient grains are a grouping of grains and cereals that date back to prehistoric times and have managed to remain relatively whole and untouched by the modern food industry, especially in comparison to certain other wheat and corn varieties. Ancient grains have been making the rounds in recent years – showing up in supermarkets,recipes and pantries - and for good reason. Not only are they less processed than their modern peers, they’re also naturally free of or low in gluten, which appeals to a rapidly expanding gluten-sensitive cohort. Even more enchanting are some of the stories that accompany these grains, like the idea that you can work Kamut, a grain found in King Tutankhamen’s tomb, into your next lunchtime salad. From soups and salads, to cakes, cookies, even popcorn, this feed is an ode to the ancient grain!

A Note From Annie Jefferson

This salad is light and refreshing, a lovely choice for a summer day. The noodles are tossed in a combination of coconut oil, miso, sesame oil, maple syrup, and tamari, and then folded together with spring onions, sweet peas, arugula and fresh herbs, topped with lime juice and sesame seeds. It's easy to make and will leave you feeling fresh and maybe even zen.

A Note From Annie Jefferson

Wheat berries include the whole wheat kernel - the bran, endosperm, and germ - making them a whole grain. Wheat berries tend to be higher in fiber and protein compared with the fractioned versions of wheat, and are rich in nutrients such as itamin E, calcium, B vitamins, folate, and potassium.
