(Some Food Nut)   Fark Food Thread: Stepping away from the old standby grains, what are some good options for cooking with less common grains? Quinoa has really gained in popularity lately. How about amaranth as well? Others? Let's see those pics and recipes   (blog.rateyourburn.com ) divider line

Quinoa is great if you like stealing food from the mouths of South Americans.

Good job on the frozen peas, Emeril.

*gasp* oh no!

Watch me read up on how frozen vegetables are no different nutritionally from fresh again and not give a shiat.

Nutritionally, no difference. I agree.
Taste is another difference altogether, but it's obvious you "don't give a shiat".




The people with the actual profile name you tried to get are so much more interesting than you, Maude.
And you are wrong, even culinary experts can't tell fresh from frozen more often than guessing would allow for when they are prepped the same way.

But, the next time its winter and I want peas I'll make sure trudge around and find local fresh ones and think of you and your asinine nitpicking nonsense

I eat grains found only in the tombs of Toltec shamans; you've probably never heard of them.

Worldwide vegan demand for quinoa is starving Peruvians of one of their staple foods. Guardian UK
Plus, nasty. Ew.

p the boiler: Is this the post where I get to tell you I eat paleo and I am better than you.

/because I eat paleo
//and this makes me better than your unhealthy ass

\not 100% paleo (I love the occasional sushi or mexican night with tortilla chips)
\\so, I am not really that much better than you
\\\do consider it though, it helped me drop 60 lbs in about 4 months and I have been keeping it off


I didn't get fat in the first place, so I don't need to rely on a fad diet to lose a bunch of weight.

do grits count?

cause grits are good...

get grits

put grits in water (4 parts water to 1 part grits)

add butter (if 4 cups of water - tablespoon of butter at the beginning, tablespoon of butter at the end)
add salt (like some amount, i don't remember - 1.1/4 teaspoon?)

heat up till boiling, then turn to low and cover

stir every 5 minutes or so

at about 40 minutes, add half a cup parmesan, half a cup cheddar cheese, and the rest of the butter.

eat, because it's awesome.

(or serve with some shrimp in a fancy sauce = shrimp and grits, or veal with fancy red sauce = grits and grillades)

Big fan of wheat, barley, corn, and pretty much any other grain in fermented, distilled, and liquid form.

Moderation is key with some of these whole grains, otherwise you'll end up pooping wicker furniture.

one thing about quinoa.  I didn't like it much when I tried boiling it like rice.  I've found that putting it in a mesh strainer over boiling water and steaming it cooks it up much nicer, without turning to glue, and leaves it with individual seeds with good texture.

I'm a big fan of quinoa.  My latest recipe with it was this:
farm4.staticflickr.com
Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressing

These were also a big hit:
farm9.staticflickr.com
Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites

And finally (for now, cuz I gotta go get lunch), this one is simple but really really good.

Wait until subby gets a new blender.  There'll be a whole thread about what can they do with it.
