PERFECTLY COOKED

To ensure perfect results when cooking grains, follow the steps on pages 20 and 22-23.

Rinse grains as necessary and use a heavy-based saucepan with a lid to cook them in.

Use the guides below to make sure that your grains are perfectly cooked.

◀ COOKED AMARANTH

Amaranth should be cooked one

part grain to three parts boiling

water, then simmered gently

for about 25 minutes. Cooked

amaranth is rather sticky, but

remains crunchy on the outside

and soft inside.

COOKED BUCKWHEAT ▶

Buckwheat should be rinsed

thoroughly before cooking.

Add one part buckwheat

to two parts boiling water

or stock and cook for about

12-15 minutes. It also

cooks well by absorption

or steaming methods.

COOKED FREEKEH ▲

Freekeh is extremely easy to cook.

The cooking times and liquid ratios

vary depending on whether you

are using wholegrain or cracked

freekeh, so follow the directions

on the pack.

◀ COOKED FARRO

Farro is available in different varieties,

and the wholegrain kind takes longer

to cook than semi-pearled or pearled.

The easiest way to cook it is in boiling

water (in a 1:2 ratio of grain to water)

for approximately 15-20 minutes. Its

chewy texture makes farro a fantastic

substitute for rice or pasta.

COOKED KAMUT ▲

Pre-soaking kamut is optional but will

significantly speed up the cooking process.

Bring the measured water to the boil (use

a 1:2 ratio of grain to water), add the

drained, soaked grain, then cover, and

simmer for 30-40 minutes. Spelt can be

cooked in a similar way.
