Unconventional Grains: Vegan Mofo Day 23

It worries me that this is the 3rd time I’ve brought up Ikea this mofo. I’m slightly obsessed. There’s furniture, fabrics, kitchenware and a suppringing amount of vegan food. Last time I was there I picked up this packet of grains and this is a perfect excuse to break them out and try them.


The packet promises a mix of grains – rye, wheat, barley, oats – flavoured with wild garlic, lemon, jalapeño and lingonberry. But you can read that on the bag, so what does it taste like? Well mostly grainy. I didn’t really pick up any of the flavourings over the nuttiness of the grains. I like lit but I could have done with a stronger taste of the wild garlic.


In future I’d serve this with a strong tasting slab of marinated tofu. Something with lots of chilli or covered in barbecue sauce. Throw in some greens and it’s would be a decent meal.
