We all know that we should be eating more whole grains, an essential foundation of any healthy diet. Making this goal a reality can be a challenge, though, especially on a weeknight. Lorna shares tempting recipes that focus exclusively on quick-cooking whole grains—those that take 30 minutes or less to cook—and on the array of whole-grain products that are now easily found in grocery stores, from tortillas to pastas.
Even sweets get a healthy makeover with whole-grain ingredients so that anyone can feel good about indulging in treats such as Orange-Scented Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peach Blueberry Crumble, or Chocolate Pudding Pie. Lorna guides readers through every step of cooking with whole grains, from reading the labels and selecting the best whole-grain products to using techniques that bring out the maximum flavors in the recipes. She lives in New York City. To learn more about her, visit www. Read an Excerpt excerpt Quinoa Paella with Chicken and Chorizo Serves 4 I'm sure that a traditional Spanish cook would find it odd to make a paella based on quinoa, but the concept works well.
Show More. Average Review. Write a Review. Anonymous More than 1 year ago Love deserts in this book. Not sure what the other reviewers is talking about but most of the ingredients in this cookbook I can find in my kitchen. Peach blueberry crumb is my favorite. SEEKING More than 1 year ago I was disappointed in the receipes because they all seemed to require ingrediants that are not found in the average kitchen. The grains were not a problem, but many of the other ingrediants were.
I would not recommend this book for the average cook. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. We've gotten interested in grains at home, and I've not had much experience in cooking them. So, I grabbed hold of as many cookbooks from the library as I could find. This was one of them and today I am buying a copy for myself. They were created for people short on time, and while I'm very seldom forced to create a meal in 30 minutes, I do very much appreciate her premise that the fewer pots used to cook the meal, the better.
So, being a "create dinner in a flash" kind of book, there are short-cuts incorporated that I don't need to adopt. Finding convenience foods in an ingredient list is usually a problem for me, but it doesn't bother me in this book. I'm not talking canned-soup-type convenience food, but maybe store-bought pesto or a can of beans. And those are ingredient short-cuts that I can accept or decide to do from scratch.
What really sold me on this book are the author's suggestions for "Other Ideas".

With each recipe comes a little section of "Other Ideas" that enables you to use the directions with other ingredients. So, with each recipe, you actually get several. Besides that, the "Ideas" really get my creative juices flowing in all directions: Her ideas provide fuel for my ideas. The age of the book affects the "At a Glance" charts that suggest where you can find all the grains. Back in when she was writing this book I suppose that mail-order and health food stores might have been the only resources for these grains, but that is no longer true.
Most of the recipes in this book deal with whole grains--before they get ground into flour. Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I got this book for the mixes.
21 Healthy, Delicious Recipes To Kick-Start Your Daniel Fast
This book has completely changed the way that I cook! I'm able to cook better food, more often for my family. I've had this book for months, and I still find myself using it times a week. Her pancake and biscuit recipes are especially excellent. One person found this helpful.
This book has LOTS of information about grains I had never even heard of before, as well as places to get them from and yummy ways to cook them. The recipes are easy to prepare and cook quickly. It also includes meatless options for most of the recipes. Really useful cookbook! Pretty much everybody agrees whole grains are what we ought to eat. This book introduces many I'd never heard of but found I liked a lot. The recipes are easy and good. I've given this a gift and been warmly thanked. Tried 2 recipes so far both were wonderful - salmon with quinoa and multigrain pancakes.
This cookbook has fast and easy receipes using not so common whole grains. I have several of Lorna Sass' cookbooks from Amazon. Format: Paperback. I am completely hopeless in the kitchen, so I accepted the "Whole Grains for Busy People" as an engagement present from a dear friend who is a seasoned chef!! To my excitment, I learned that my fears were completely unfounded; with the help of this gem of a cookbook, I've been able to create some truly delicious meals -- and have had fun doing so without any difficulty at all! Every week, I've tried a new recipe and have loved the results as does my new fiance!!
The "Ziti with Chicken Marsala, Mushrooms, and Fennel" was my first real attempt in the kitchen, but the author's clear instructions and useful "speed tips" made dinner a big hit! Although the author deserves all the credit, I was proud to say that I made these meals myself!
Tonight we'll be trying the "Farro with Italian Sausage, Escarole, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes" -- which is making my mouth water just reading the ingredients. I'm so glad to have received this book. Unlike some of the other cookbooks my mom has tried to lure me into the kitchen with!! In addition the creative, flavorful recipes, the author's step-by-step instructions, sidenotes, and suggestions for modifications, have really allowed me to flourish in the kitchen.
What a great gift for a new bride-to-be, or for anyone eager to learn how to prepare some new healthy, delicious meals!
I was a bit disappointed by this book even after overlooking the fact that the majority of the recipes called for meat as a large part of the dish not a fan of the industrial, factory farmed meat found in the typical supermarket. If you are new to the world of whole grains and trying to incorporate them into your meals, it may offer some good recipes for you.
