Special Kitchen Tools
To convert your kitchen into a quick and perfect food preparation place, we consider the TurboBlend unequalled. It is a special, high-speed, heavy-duty 3-in-one blender (liquifier/grinder/juicer) which has many time-saving features. It can grind grain into flour within 2 minutes; in a flash, it can pulverize vegetables or fruits into delicious sauces, soups, smoothies or drinks. It is one of the handiest, consistently used kitchen aids that you can use.
Use non-toxic cookware such as Premier Waterless Cookware. Avoid highly heating oils or fats when cooking. High temperatures produce high amounts of free radicals in the oil. Fried oils are not part of a healthy diet.
1. Rinse the Grains First, place the grain in a strainer and rinse once or twice with purified water.
2. Soak overnight. Next, place the grain in a glass bowl and add enough water so that there is about one inch of water above the level of the grain. (The extra water is needed as the grain drinks in the water and slowly expands.) Cover the bowl and let it stand at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. You may want to rinse the grain once or twice more during this time.
3. Rinse and blend. After 12 to 24 hours, rinse the grain again. Place the soaked grain in a TurboBlend or a regular blender. Add 3 1/2 cups of water, 1 tsp. natural sea salt and herbs (if desired). Blend all the ingredients together for 2 or 3 minutes until the batter is thin and creamy.
4. Heat the batter. Pour pancake-sized amounts of batter on a skillet. Use a small amount of olive oil to lubricate the pan. Heat at medium temperature (flip once or twice) until the batter is well-cooked.
5. Congratulations! You’ve just made delicious, hearty, organic flatbread.
Pick one day a week to make a big batch of flatbread. Divide them up in several freezer bags (a few per bag) and freeze them. When needed later during the week (for snacks or meals), take out a bag of frozen flatbread. Heat a few of the flatbreads in a toaster oven until toasty warm. From its frozen state to piping hot just takes 2 or 3 minutes.
