Recipe Redux: Whole Grains

We all know whole grains are good for us, but  besides whole grain bread, what other products can you use with minimal prep time? If you love oatmeal or grits, you'll definitely go for Bob's Red Mill 10 grain hot cereal.

The 10 grain cereal contains whole grain wheat, rye, triticale, oats, oat bran, corn, barley, soybeans, brown rice, millet, and flaxseed. Oh, and you can have it all in 1 bowl for breakfast. Score.

To prepare:

  • 1/4 C grain mix
  • 3/4 C water

Microwave 3 mins in a large bowl and  let set for 1-2 mins. This mix has 5 grams of fiber which is a great filling breakfast. Top the whole grain cereal with antioxidants and use those Thanksgiving cranberries!

Fresh CranOrange Relish

  • 1.5 Navel oranges
  • 3 C fresh cranberries
  • .5 C sugar

In a blender, add sugar, cranberries and roughly chopped orange (yes, the whole thing). Pulse until relish is minced in appearance. Alter to taste. Refrigerate.

This recipe redux is sure to give you lots of ideas for using quinoa and other unusual grains, but I hope you make an effort to fit whole grains into your diet every day. This cereal recipe is a fast fix! No excuses!
