My newest book, Ancient Grains: A Guide to Cooking with Power-Packed Millet, Oats, Spelt, Farro, Sorghum & Teff (Superfoods for Life) is now available!

I am very proud of this book. Each recipe features a delicious whole grain that provides nutrition, flavor and delightful texture. Four of the grains are gluten-free: millet, oats, sorghum and teff, and they can really impact your gluten-free menu. 

For example, tiny teff can be used to crunch-up breaded veggies, like my Teff-Breaded Eggplant Slices. Sorghum can replace barley in mushroom soup, like in my Mushroom Sorghum Soup. Of course, there's an abundance of baking recipes like Peach Mango Muffins and entree dishes and salads like Millet Tabbouleh that will have you running to the kitchen to get started with this book.

Of course this is a vegan cookbook.

Every book I write is a collective effort that depends on so many people for its success. For ANCIENT GRAINS, I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Bob's Red Mill. We used tons of Bob's Red Mill grains when I was creating recipes and when my recipe testers were perfecting them. We loved the flavor, texture and high quality of these grains.






I think you will, too. To celebrate the publication of ANCIENT GRAINS, we're giving away a prize pack of grains from Bob's Red Mill and a copy of Ancient Grains: A Guide to Cooking with Power-Packed Millet, Oats, Spelt, Farro, Sorghum & Teff (Superfoods for Life) . (If you need all gluten-free grains, Bob's Red Mill will let you swap out spelt and farro for an extra pack of two of the gluten-free grains.)

Thank you for your support over the years. My life has taken turns that I never could have predicted. I am so grateful that my readers have helped me to find all of these new adventures. 

Disclosure: Bob's Red Mill has provided me with grains to create recipes and test them, and they are providing this prize. Sterling Publishing is providing a copy of Ancient Grains.

  5. I got myself an instant pot for Christmas, and since then, I've been obsessed with learning how to cook different beans, lentils and grains.
