From bestselling author Julie Van Rosendaal and her longtime friend Sue Duncan comes a guide to cooking healthy and delicious meals with beans and grains. With humorous anecdotes and clear, concise instructions, Julie and Sue spill the beans, on beans?from demystifying the process of soaking and cooking dried beans and lentils to telling the truth about beans and flatulence. Gastroenterologist Dr. Guido Van Rosendaal (Julie?s dad!) adds tips about how to get more legumes and whole grains into our everyday diets. Spilling the Beans covers it all, from how to successfully sneak nutritious foods into kid-friendly meals to getting fibre into breads and baked goodies. Also included are detailed descriptions of the varieties of beans (aka legumes and pulses) and grains (barley, bulgar, couscous, quinoa, buckwheat, wheatberries, brown rice, and wild rice), along with tips on how to cook them. Wake up to lentils for breakfast (Cranberry Cornmeal Mini Muffins), or get your dinner party guests talking about beans as a dessert (Black Bean Brownies). Whether you are a long-time legume lover or just starting your affair with beans, everything you need to know about them is here in this beautifully designed epub for the Kobo Vox.
