Expand your eating universe by introducing different healthy grains into your diet.

Ancient grains are becoming increasingly popular the more that people are trying to stay healthy.  To be truthful, I have never sampled these types of grains before until Pereg Natural Foods sent me a box of these products.

The first one I prepared was the Teff Ivory Porridge.  According to the package instruction, this box serves two–-maybe giants but hardly the same serving size compared to one of our standbys of oatmeal for breakfast.  Serving four is more realistic.

This Teff Porridge is a beige-brown color that reminds me somewhat of cream of wheat, but thicker.  We added a little sugar and milk.  We found it more filling than cream of wheat as well.

The Freekeh with Vegetables has a rice like grain with a barley sort of chewy texture to it.  It was accompanied by a mix of various vegetables such as carrots, peppers, onions along with spices and herbs. This made a great change of pace for a side dish.

The Farro Superfood is from the wheat family and sort of reminds me of wild rice.  It also made a tasty, healthy side dish with all the protein, fiber, magnesium and iron.

Lastly, there was Kaniwa Baby Quinoa with all its proteins and amino acids.  I wasn’t exactly sure how best to make this dark reddish-brown ancient grain.  After preparing it as directed, I improvised after my initial taste.  I added some Parmesan cheese, a little butter and some salt to help it along.  It has a fine texture with some crunch that at times can be a bit gritty.  This is just my opinion, but I can understand why it became an ancient grain.

If you’re looking to improve your diet with some new, healthier grains, Pereg Natural Foods is a good place to start your new food journey. My favorites were the Freekeh with Vegetables, Teff Porridge and the Farro Super Food.  Check them out.
