Ancient Grains for Modern Cooks

Diane explores the ancient grains that Greek cooks still love to use. A hearty, soul-satisfying breakfast grain called hondros, or cracked wheat, gives a great start to the day. Fresh vegetables, green apples and mint add a pop of freshness to an easy bread salad made with a classic Cretan barley rusk called dako or paximadi. Pasta tossed with Greek yogurt and half a dozen fresh herbs provides instant comfort with a taste that's quintessentially Greek. Finally, trahana, an unusual grain product made with milk and dried in the sun, turns a simple braised eggplant dish into something exotic and irresistible. Learn how to incorporate timeless ancient grains into every meal of the day. Paximadia, bread rusks; Dako, Cretan bread salad with tomatoes, green apples & herbs; Pasta tossed with Greek yogurt and herbs; Bulgur pilaf with roasted sea bass; Eggplant braised with trahana.
