Herbed Quinoa

HERBED QUINOA

Dress this creamy yet crunchy grain with a little EVOO and fresh herbs, and you've got a savory stand-in for polenta or couscous.

 
Buck Wheat Pasta Onion Mushroom

BUCKWHEAT WITH PASTA, ONIONS AND MUSHROOMS

Try toasting the buckwheat before cooking to add an earthy, smoky flavor to this dish.

 
Farro Red Pepper Salad

FARRO-AND-RED PEPPER SALAD WITH SESAME AND GINGER

Make this recipe ahead of time: The flavors will become more intense, and unlike other starches the farro won't dry out or get mushy.

 
Millet Pilaf Almond Feta

MILLET PILAF WITH ALMONDS AND FETA

Switch up your everyday pilaf for millet and you'll get an extra antioxidant boost.

 
Pesto Barley

PESTO BARLEY WITH MOZZARELLA AND CHERRY TOMATOES

Keep cooked barley on hand in the freezer -- it defrosts easily in the microwave -- and you can toss this salad together in minutes.

 
Dirty Brown Rice

DIRTY BROWN RICE

It's easy to introduce your family to brown rice when it's mixed with sausage and peppers, and they'll get three times the fiber than they would have with white rice.
