Braised Tofu Sriracha and Sesame Linguine are complimentary in taste texture and eye appeal. In a marriage saucy spice and comfort food, this is perfect pairing for an intimate dinner or a scaled up for a dinner party.

Braising is a cooking technique that begins with browning the main ingredient. Seasonings, veggies liquid are added, and simmered over low heat in a covered pan.

A wonderful cooking method for tofu, tempeh, seitan and/or a wide variety of vegetables, braising does not require much attention after the main ingredient is browned.

Khorasan wheat, sometimes called Oriental wheat is an ancient grain and the term Khorasan refers to a region in the northeast of modern-day Iran, ancient Mesopotamia. This actual grain is twice the size of today’s wheat and is known for its rich, nutty flavor[1]

Kamut® has been a registered trademark by Kamut International since 1990, after Bob Quinn, a fourth generation Montana farmer with a PhD in biochemistry spent 10 years cultivating a specific variety of Khorasan wheat. In ancient Egypt, ‘Kamut’ meant ‘wheat, grain and wheaten bread.’ The reason word Kamut could be registered as a trademark was because it belongs to a dead language. …read more of Kamut Khorason Wheat, Highly Nutritious and Easier to Digest here

Pancakes are delicious, quick to the table and really easy to make!

It seems that pancakes have been with us for a very long time.

The ancient Greeks and Romans ate pancakes that were sweetened with honey and in the Elizabethan era pancakes, made from a flour and egg batter were a popular breakfast food flavored with spices, rosewater, sherry and apples.

With origins in the Middle Ages, Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day falls on the first Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, a day of feasting before the beginning of Lent. Traditionally lots of pancakes were eaten as a way to use up eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting during Lent.

There is evidence of pancake cookery from the Stone Age. Analysis of grinding tools from about 30,000 years ago suggests that pancakes were among the first foods that humans learned to cook. …read more of Hot off the Griddle ~ High Protein Strawberry Banana Pancakes With No Added Fat! here
