Rye is a versatile grain! Not only can Rye be turned into flour to make bread and baked goods, the grain itself can be boiled and enjoyed as berries in soups, stews and salads. Rye is also used to make whiskey - both multigrain and pure blends.
Rye is an excellent source of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and other phytonutrients. It helps reduce cholesterol, control blood sugar, lower inflammation and protect against colon and breast cancer. It also helps you feel full for longer and thus aid weight loss.
Rye berries are excellent for grain bowls, salads, stews, soups or risotto. It can be served as a substitute to rice, or added to a supersalad as you would quinoa, millet or freekeh. To prepare, bring 1 part of rinsed rye grains and 3 parts water/stock/liquid to the boil, and then cover, reduce heat and allow to simmer for about an hour until the grains are tender but chewy. Drain any excess water and serve.
