Cooking grains

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
\N 2 water
\N 1 grain

The easiest way to cook grains is to rinse first in a colander under cold water until water runs clear. Then place in a fixed quantity of water (2 parts water for 1 part grain), bring to a rapid boil and lower heat to a simmer. Cover, simmer according to package directions and don't be tempted to stir. (Stirring makes a mushy end product.) This method is particularly well suited to softer grains, like quinoa. To speed cooking of hard grains like barley and wheat berries, soak several hours in cold water to cover. Then cook in a large open pot of boiling water, (see package directions).
