Going WITH the Grain!

Sure, it's good to against the grain sometimes, doing something opposite to what is usually done. But this week, it's all about...

Going WITH the Grain!

Pick a Yotam Ottolenghi recipe from one of his books or online that features or includes grains. You can pick a recipe using one of your favorite grains, or maybe it is time to try something new, or a less-utilized-by-you grain. It's up to you. 

Just make sure you use an Ottolenghi recipe and make and post your great grainy dish by Sunday, May 5th.

Don't forget to link your dish, as well as a thumbnail image, below.  Please remember to leave a comment after linking so that we don't miss out on your dish. 

New to IHCC?  Need help linking up?  Please see our Welcome pageIf you have any questions, please leave a comment below and we will get back with you.  

If you missed our fun freestyle make-any-IHCC-Chef Potluck theme last week, be sure to click on the links and check out all the fabulous recipes everyone made!

****Don't forget to check out the details on the Optional Monthly Community Recipe: Shakshuka on last week's post too if you want to join in cooking a recipe as a group for this fun new IHCC feature!  

So get Going WITH the Grain!

Finally got my Shakshuka recipe posted - just scraped in on the last day of the month - why, oh why do I always leave everything till the last minute!!

Now to give some thought to something "grainy" for later in the week.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Sue - I'm so glad you got the chance to post your shakshuka (with all those tasty additions- yum), but I giggled when I read the part about being last minute. I am the biggest procrastinator! That's why I always post my IHCC dish right at the last minute every Sunday. However, in US time, you're a whole day early!

Yay Shashuka! ;-)

I tried Ottolenghi's Barley Risotto with Marinated Feta. Mmm... It was very satisfying and full of flavor!

A quinoa dish for me this week.

Quinoa for me too. A keeper.

Rice at my place! We love rice!

I decided to get sweet with Ottolenghi this week, and boy am I glad I did. The Plum & Oat Bars were an absolute triumph.

I absolutely loved the farro and roasted pepper salad. Thanks to Joanne for the tip about adding beans. It really made for a very tasty salad full of flavor and texture.
