The Great Grains Cookbook

Author: Celine Steen & Tamasin Noyes · Subject: Cookbooks


Whole grains are a great source of protein and other nutrients that are typically found in meat and eggs, making them a valuable part of any plant-based diet.

That’s where The Great Vegan Grains Book comes the rescue, taking you step-by-step through the myriad grains available today, and providing you with more than 100 simple, plant-based, whole-grain recipes (many of them low-fat, soy free, and even gluten-free).

Each recipe uses whole-food ingredients found at most grocery stores, so you can say yes to grains and eating better too!

Cook delicious meals with ancient grains like amaranth, farro, millet, quinoa, and more and try recipes that will quickly become favorites, such as:

  • Quinoa Breakfast Pilaf
  • Apple and Oats French Toast
  • Sausage Smash Potato Hash
  • Spelt and Bean Burritos
  • Tempeh Buckwheat Bowl
  • Teff and Pea Fritters
  • Cracked Wheat Koftas
  • Roasted Corn and Barley Chowder
  • Warm Farro and Sweet Potato Salad

Also enjoy gluten-free vegan recipes, such as:

  • Apricot Oats

And many more!

“I love all of Celine and Tamasin’s book, but The Great Vegan Grain Book is pretty spectacular. It’s full of Celine’s beautiful photos and has recipes for just about any grain you’ve been wanting to add into your diet.” – Kathy Hester. “Blueberry Breakfast Polenta from The Great Vegan Grain Book.” 22 March 16

“If you ever scratched your head wondering what to make with the bag of amaranth or millet you just bought – or tracked down einkorn flour after seeing…lovely pancakes, this book is for you. Tips and tricks for each grain are included along with sweet and savory recipes for any time of the day.” – Janet. Creamy Cheezy Vegan Polenta + Giveaway.” 5 March 16

“What an awesome book, another winner from Steen and Noyes! [A] wealth of information, really helps me take advantage of the bulk section of my grocery store, helping me save $$ buying bulk grains and use interesting, healthy ingredients. I had never used spelt berries in my life until I made the Spelt Chili from this book- so delicious! And the serving suggestion to top it with guac was awesome, rather than buying vegan sour cream, more natural and super delish! Great book, excellent cooking tips, and grain charts, looking forward to cooking many more winning meals from it.” – BW, Amazon

“Awesome book. After learning about the problem with arsenic in rice, I decided I really ought to eat other grains. Or just not eat rice as often. And, as a vegan, adding all the grains it is not only good for me but expands the meal choices I can offer my family. Love the recipes, love the variety.” – The Cacklin’ Hen, Amazon
