Meatless Monday: Cauliflower Croquettes

Finished Cauliflower Croquettes

These croquettes are tasty. They are made with millet and short grain brown rice, which together, create a chewy binding for the vegetables. If you only use one grain, I suggest trying the millet, especially if you’ve not tasted it before. The addition of red pepper adds beautiful flecks of color throughout the croquette.

Wheat Bread: A Baking Retrospective

About two years ago I started experimenting with making my own sandwich bread.

From the start I knew that this mission was all about incorporating whole grains. I want to bring bread back to the basics: handmade, unrefined (or less so), and healthy. Oh, and I want it to taste good too.
