Starting on Wednesday, January 7, 2009, The Washington Post’s food section will run a six-part series featuring exciting recipes from my new book, WHOLE GRAINS FOR BUSY PEOPLE.
Here’s an excerpt from the Publishers Weekly review of WHOLE GRAINS FOR BUSY PEOPLE:
For those intimidated by cooking with whole grains, veteran cookbook author Sass breaks down the “what” and “how” of whole grains in this accessible title brimming with healthy and appealing dishes. A primer on grains, including where to buy and brand recommendations, prefaces a collection of 125 recipes, each designed to take the home cook under 30 minutes to prepare. Whole grain takes on American classics including quinoa-creamed spinach and skillet macaroni and cheese, are mixed in among versions of well-known international dishes such as barley cioppino, faro risotto and tortilla lasagne. Unique recipes such as popcorn-crusted turkey cutlets with cherry tomato salsa and ham-and-egg couscous round out the list. Speed tips offer additional time-saving advice to the already quick-to-prepare meals. Full-color photos highlight collection standouts.
