    1                    grain
 The easiest way to cook grains is to rinse first in a colander under cold water
  until water runs clear. Then place in a fixed quantity of water (2 parts water
  for 1 part grain), bring to a rapid boil and lower heat to a simmer. Cover, si
 mmer according to package directions and don't be tempted to stir. (Stirring ma
 kes a mushy end product.) This method is particularly well suited to softer gra
 ins, like quinoa. To speed cooking of hard grains like barley and wheat berries
 , soak several hours in cold water to cover. Then cook in a large open pot of b
 oiling water, (see package directions). Then check out our recipes for some gre
 at grain-and-veggie combinations.
