Whole Grain Stovetop Cooking Reference for Dry and Soaked Grains

When I look for something online and can’t find it, that usually means it’s probably worth taking the time to create, for my own use and yours!

Well, I’ve been trying to streamline meal preparation and I’ve been focusing on breakfasts recently. At our home, the morning usually begins with fresh vegetable juice or a fruit smoothie, but the kids usually have a cooked breakfast soon after. This might be pancakes or muffins, but most commonly is hot cereal. I’ve found any of the gluten-free grains make a fine hot cereal. I cook up a large batch and then reheat portions a couple following mornings, adding various toppings.

I found that I was constantly pulling out my Everyday Wholesome Eating cookbook to reference the “Cooking Whole Grains” section. I also didn’t have information on water amounts and cooking times for soaked grains there, so I was experimenting with this. So I looked on line for this kind of reference, but to no avail.

So here it is, for your enjoyment and mine! A resource that simply gives water and cooking times for all the gluten-free grains I care to deal with, for both dry and soaked grains.

I’d love to insert a little image of the chart here, but that’s beyond my technological ability at this point. Simply click here on Whole Grain Stovetop Cooking Reference and it will take you to the resource.

    Thanks for this great post. I always have just guessed at the lesser amounts for soaked grains. Glad to have this chart.

    What is the benefit of adding the apple cider vinegar to the soaking water?

    Thanks again.

    Acids help neutralize the enzyme inhibitors, like phytates, naturally present in grains. This makes them easier to digest and more beneficial.
