Make Ahead Grains

Here is a technique that I have been using lately to incorporate more whole grains into my family’s diet: I cook a variety of whole grains that I have on hand over the weekend, simply and plainly with water and a touch of salt. Then I store them in the refrigerator in a covered container.

Whenever I’m ready (which can be daily!), I combine them with whatever I have on hand. In this case I cooked red quinoa on Sunday, then a few days later I combined it with cucumbers, tomatoes, feta, cilantro, extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. There are endless combinations that are easy to tackle when the grains are already prepared. Bon Appetit !
