What do all Grainful dishes have in common? Well yes, they’re delicious and all made with 100% natural steel cut oats but there is one other component that you’ll encounter on any Grainful adventure… Onions!
Now, onions are often discriminated against because they’ve been known to cause tears and bad breath, but we don’t think that is fair. Onions have great health benefits and often are the key to the perfect dish. Don’t let your salsas, stir-fry or salads suffer, it’s time to stop crying over smelly onions and learn how to use them like a pro.
Here in Ithaca, winter is upon us in full force. And nothing warms up the chilly days like a bowl of Jambalaya, a favorite meal of Grainful's President, Jan Pajerski. Hearty, spicy and soulful, this traditional Creole dish hails from the warmer climes of Louisiana, with both French and Spanish roots. Considered by some to be the cousin of paella, Jambalaya typically consists of 3 main parts: meat + veggies + rice (not to mention a medley of herbs & spices and a whole lotta love). For our own Grainful riff on this dish, we toss out the rice and substitute – you got it – OATS!
