After reading through some of the recipes I started to notice that a lot… okay honestly, almost all of these recipes call for “WonderFlour”. What the heck is that? I had no clue what that was. As I did more reading, I found that it’s a mixture of equal parts Spelt, Barley and Brown Rice. My next task was to find some of this goodness! So who did I turn to? My Mom – the Chef Brad fanatic herself…Of course she told me that Chef Brad grinds it all with the “WonderMill”. I guess I’m going to be grinding this mixture myself!
It dawned on me that if I’m going to be cooking all of these recipes, I’m going to need a lot of WonderFlour! I presented the idea to my husband and of course he told me that we couldn’t afford one. I even told him that it was a necessity, not just a want! He didn’t budge…Well I decided to let the begging and pleading begin. After only a couple of weeks my sweet husband finally broke. (I always get what I want in the end…hehehe). On our anniversary he surprised me with a brand new WonderMill! Thanks babe!
So now my new journey can officially begin.
I am going to grind my own grain to make all of these recipes that use whole grain to make delicious comfort foods. I’m sure I will soon be begging my husband to buy me a new wardrobe after all of these recipes start to find their place…But on to the real stuff …THE FOOD!
HOW TO MAKE WONDERFLOUR
First you’ll want to gather all three of the grains in equal parts:
3) Brown Rice
Second you will combine the trio of grains
You now have freshly ground WonderFlour!
The last and final step is to use your WonderFlour in all of these new recipes to follow!
Until next time…
