Carob is NOT a substitute for chocolate, and it's a terrible lie to tell hippy children.

I'm okay without chocolate, but should I be figuring out how to stockpile 30 years' worth of coffee and rice?

You might be able to get away with barley or groats in place of rice for some dishes.   I wonder if pinhead oats would cook up like brown rice if you cooked it similarly

Do people hate cauliflower rice or something?  I've never tried it, but keep meaning to... I gotta tell ya, I made "potato" salad with it a while back and it was pretty convincing.

Running out of coffee will definitely start WW3.

Did you know that some religious scholars think that the Forbidden Fruit might have been carob? I'd understand God kicking them out if they made carob brownies instead of brownies made with chocolate.

As long as I'm dead before the coffee plant goes extinct, I'll be fine.

I've used it to make stuffed cabbage a handful of times and it turned out phenomenally. Made meatballs once with it too and it was really good.

I've been using wheat berries as a replacement for rice for a few years. It's not the same, but it works for me.

I've made rolled oats with a heavy pinch of salt, and then used it as a starch for stuff like Filipino adobo.

But that was more a 'I don't want to wait for rice to cook' situation.

Cooking speed is definitely not a point in the favor of wheat berries.

On the plus side, I buy it in bulk at Costco for really cheap and the bucket it comes in is the same size as the bucket fermenters I used to buy for making beer.

Rice production in particular releases an estimated 34 million tons of methane per year, released by microbes that grow in the flooded fields where rice is cultivated. It's an unsustainable practice, to say the least.

Rice isn't "endangered." Rice doesn't require flooded fields - it's just more convenient. Keeps weeds down and yields up. In some areas, those fields are going to flood regardless; it's how folks figured out that rice grows just fine in flooded fields in the first farking place.

The link sounds scary, but, although rice production is the single biggest contributor to food-related methane release, the total for all food production is about 15% of the global total and represents the smallest group of anthropogenic methane emissions.

If you're worried about anthropogenic methane emissions, slow your roll on fossil fuels & livestock. Fossil fuel and animal agriculture represents about two-thirds of that total. Rice is fine.

*food production from plant agriculture - it's about 30%  for animal agriculture, 15% for plant agriculture.

I've had it a few times.  The texture's there but it has a slightly off flavor.  Like rubbery almost.

Use it in biryani recipes, and you don't notice.

I once saw a recommendation to not try to replace it entirely, but to go 50/50.

Personally, I just roast them both in the oven and make aloo gobi

Farro is a decent sub for brown rice and cooks pretty quick.
