Learn how to grow (and consume) sprouts, shoots, and microgreens at home without using expensive or complicated equipment. All you need is tap water and a glass jar, and you're ready to go! This is an easy, fast, and smart way to fit healthy greens into your diet. Following Lina Wallentinson's instructions, in just a few days, you'll see dry seeds transform into burgeoning green sprouts. In Sprouts, Shoots, and Microgreens, Wallentinson proves there is much more to shoots, sprouts, and microgreens than the classics cress and mung beans and that they are truly easy to grow, no matter where you try to do so. All plants in this book can be grown in jars, colanders, sieves, or bags at any height, using many different kinds of light sources, and even under pressure. In addition to showing how to grow shoots and sprouts, Wallentinson teaches how to make delicious meals with your harvest. Using step-by-step pictures and descriptive recipes, she demonstrates that shoots and sprouts are much more than just decorations on a plate. Recipes include sushi rolls with quinoa and wasabi mayonnaise, baked pumpkin with lentil sprouts and almond pesto or coffee, and coconut balls with toasted buckwheat!

A breakthrough bread book by the unchallenged expert in gluten-free and wheat-free cooking.
In Bette Hagman's three earlier cookbooks, she created recipes for great-tasting food working with gluten-free flours that are safe for celiacs (those who are intolerant to gluten) and for those with wheat allergies. Knowing from her own hard-earned experience that bread is the greatest loss for those who can't eat wheat, oats, rye or barley, she has experimented with exciting new bean-based flours and has devoted an entire book to breads. Here are yeast breads, yeast-free breads, muffins, rolls, buns, breakfast breads and crackers—a vast array of recipes for the oven or the bread machine—for people who cannot buy breads at a bakery or supermarket but must rely on their own kitchens to provide the staff of life.
Along with dozens of great recipes are: a beginner's guide to understanding and cooking with gluten-free flours; answers to commonly asked questions about baking with these flours; and a source list of where to buy gluten-free baking supplies.
