Ever tried Kamut?

Friday, September 06, 2013

First HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOM!!! She is 88 today and this is her first birthday since Dad died. Sadly she has to give up driving. Her Dr. told her it is no longer safe for her to drive and my sister and Niece have said her driving is terrible. She said she feels like a prisoner now.

Have you ever had Kamut? What is Kamut you ask? KAMUT® is a brand name for an ancient, recently revived strain of wheat known as khorasan wheat. KAMUT® is always grown organically. I had a salad when my daughter and i went to the King Arthur Flour cafe and shop back in June and it had Kamut. It was good so I went on the hunt for it. Cooked it today and it is good. It is crunchy and sort of chewey but has a nutty flavour. I mixed it with chopped lettuce, mint, cilantro and a tuna salad. I forgot to take a picture of it before I ate it. Try it! Google it for recipes.

    I just cooked Kamut tonight for the first time. My kids really liked the texture, because it's more chewy than brown rice and didn't get starchy/sticky. I mixed it with lentils, zucchini and mushrooms in a coconut curry simmer sauce (from a jar). It was not very pretty, as you can imagine, but it was very tasty and filling.

I found it in a bag from the Bob's Red Mill brand. I use a lot of their products. Though I suppose it could be cheaper if you found it in the bulk bins.

    emoticon to YOUR MOM! Today would have been MY MOTHER'S 98 b'day! She died 3 yrs ago. I'm toasting her with coffee (she didn't drink alcohol) & I got jelly donuts (her favorite).

Hope your mother has a WONDERFUL B'DAY. She shouldn't mind NOT DRIVING anymore. The way the NUTS drive around here, I really wish I could AFFORD to hire my own PERSONAL DRIVER! emoticon
