The Food Dish
I'm pretty sure that you’re going to love these salads, but don’t take my word for it. Try them out and let us know what you think!
My favorite method, which just happens to be perfect when you don’t have electricity, cooking fuels, or time to spend over the stove (like in emergency situations), is to let the berries soak overnight in a thermos of hot water. Bring your water to a boil and add it to the thermos. But, if you don’t want to wait overnight, bring water to a boil, add grain, boil until the berries are soft. Depending on what type of grain you’re using, it could take 30 to 60 minutes to soften. You could also use your crockpot.
I got so excited about using our Provident Pantry food storage grains that I couldn’t stick to just wheat berries. We’ve created four delicious recipes from hard red wheat, hard white wheat, spelt, and oat groats.
1 cup Provident Pantry Spelt
3 cups salted water
1 cup Provident Pantry FD Zucchini
1/2 cup FD Carrots
1 cup Provident Pantry FD Tomatoes
1/2 cup Provident Pantry FD Green Onions
For the dressing:
1/2 cup olive oil
3 to 4 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp Provident Pantry Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp Providnet Pantry Salt
1/4 tsp Provident Pantry Pepper
1/4 tsp Provident Pantry Garlic Powder
2 tsp Provident Pantry Brown sugar (more to taste)
Part of what makes a great gathering is great food. But no one wants to be stuck in the kitchen missing out on the fun. Preparation is the key. Here are some family favorites modified for an easy, last-minute toss together with all the homemade goodness. Just multiply the recipes according to how many people you’ll be feeding.
Breakfast: Chunky Monkey Pancakes
If you want everyone to be up at the same time, bring your large skillets and wow everyone with chunky monkey pancakes. Simply add chocolate chips and chunked bananas to your favorite pancake mix.
Make a delicious peanut butter syrup by mixing one part peanut butter to two parts syrup and no one will mind the wake-up call—they’ll probably come scrambling out of bed all on their own.
With this delicious recipe, you'll be prepared and well fed! Your family would never guess that this meal was made from food storage items!
