Notes

Recipe Notes

  • Cooked kamut is similar to wheat berries or brown rice. Enjoy it in a whole grain salad, pilaf, stir-fry or grain bowl.
  • The amount of final cooked grain will depend on soaking and cooking times.
  • Freeze cooked kamut for up to 3 months.

Comment

This has become one of our favorite whole grains because of its chewiness and flavor. I decided to cook extra since it does have a longer cooking time. It does freeze well for adding to soup or for making a grain bowl.
