    Thanks for the quinoa tips. I like to use the toasted flour and look forward to trying Lisa’s granola recipe.

  2. Gail Shochet says

    I’ve discovered that gluten makes my Lyme arthritis much worse so have finally managed to cut it out of my diet. Just received so e Bob’s Red Mill sorghum flour in the post and I’m looking forward to exploring more BRM GF offerings in the future.

    Iowa Girl Eats Sweet Corn and Quinoa with Honey Lemon Vinegarette would be a favorite for me. Corn is my favorite veggie and Honey, Lemon viengarette sounds so good together

  4. Lisa says

    I enjoy using healthy whole grains in our meals. I’m looking forward to hearing ideas for using these grain varieties.

  5. Savannagal says

    We eat quinoa fairly often. I’d really like to try some of the other grains. I’ve bought a few but haven’t tried them yet. I need to dig through your recipe archives and find some ideas. Thanks.

      Hi Kim
      Amaranth is one of the Grains of Discovery. I got some, but haven’t tried the recommended recipe as yet. It, like all the grains, looks interesting.

      I use quinoa all the time. I mix it 3/4c GFoatmeal to 1/4c quinoa in my oatmeal every morning. I use it in soups, and even pancakes (cook it first). I made a Quinoa Fritatta with all kinds of summer veggies. I love it!
