Curried Millet

Millet has risen in popularity along with the gluten free craze. Millet is a seed grain and has a lower glycemic index than that of rice. It's neutral in taste and has a nice texture. Curry contains the spice turmeric which has been widely studied for its anti-inflammatory characteristics. Yields 4 servings.

Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is the current "darling" of grains, especially because it does not contain gluten. In actuality, quinoa is a seed, also known as a seed grain; and therefore it contains more protein than other non-seed grains. Yields 6 servings.

Versatile Rice Pilaf

Yes, brown rice takes a long time to cook. But it's worth it. Brown rice is the grain the way nature intended - with the outside of the grain untouched by extensive processing which leads to the starch-heavy and nutrition- poor white rice.
