Whole grains are the building blocks of a healthy diet. Not only are they full of vitamins and nutrients, there is plenty of research to support the fact that whole grains help to prevent disease, control weight and aid in digestion.
Blah…blah…blah…we hear this all the time; so, why aren’t people cooking more whole grains on a regular basis? Perhaps it’s because no one ever talks about how delicious they are. Grains are often perceived as boring or being too difficult or time consuming to cook. And once cooked, what does one do with them anyways?
In this Rouxbe Cooking School lesson on How to Cook Grains, you will learn about the anatomy of whole grains. You will be exposed to some common types of grains and learn how to buy grains and how to store both cooked and uncooked grains. You will also learn how to prepare grains for cooking and how to cook grains using the four main cooking methods. Finally, you will learn how to prepare grains in advance and easy ways to incorporate grains into your diet throughout the week. After this lesson, you will have no more excuses for not eating your grains!
