Vegan Recipes: Cooking Times for Commonly Used Grains


I don't know about you, but I was long afraid to buy whole grains at the store because I had no idea how to cook them properly. How much water should I add? How long do they cook for? So, over the years I have assembled a little cheat sheet for myself and I thought I would share it with you today.

Simmer for 50-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally

1c amaranth with 2c water
Simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally

Wheat Berries
1c wheat berries with 4 c water
Soak overnight, then simmer for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.

 1c millet with 2.5c water
Simmer for 30-35 minutes

Pearl Barley
 1c barley with 2c water
