Spelt Grains of Discovery

YES, I know that Spelt is an ancient wheat.  Yes, I know that us gluten-free folks can’t eat it.
However, I’m hosting the Grains of Discovery events for Bob’s Red Mill.

So these wheat-based recipes will be on my site, pass them along to your gluten loving friends.

And if you want to make these anyway, substitute quinoa, short grain brown rice or sorghum grain for the spelt. Make sure to cook the quinoa/rice/sorghum first, then add the dressings.

These Grains of Discovery  are ancient grains that are nutritional powerhouses brought together for you by Bob’s Red Mill, sponsor of these Hangouts on Air.

Each week we will be talking about one of the grains in depth with a panel of talented bloggers who know how feed you right.

Our panel of Bloggers for Spelt includes:

Jennifer Farley Savory Simple

Lisa Cook  One Cook Two Kitchens

Marla: Saving U Green 

Stephanie Wise: Girl Versus Dough

    Jennifer discussed using spelt as a puffed rice cereal substitute and used almond milk in the recipe she described. There wasn’t an actual recipe posted for this though.
