Grains! They’re the greatest. Sometimes all you have is a sad little can of beans or a head of broccoli and grains are what save the day to make it an actual meal. Whether they be rice or quinoa or any of a dozen other grains, they’re affordable, nonperishable, and serve you faithfully as side dishes, in salads, in soups, with proteins, in a box, with a fox, etc. There are approximately eight million ways to eat the grains in your pantry; here are a few ideas to get you started.

  1. Toda muy bueno, pero it’s Monday and you mentioned sad beans in a can so I’m compelled to shill a guaranteed way to make beans smile and a 2 shakes of powdered garlic.

    (I’m sorry I could not resist and the Spanish is in gratitude for Spain being a better parent than France. Again, lo siento)

  2. The level of structural tactics used from the English language in the title of this article overwhelmed me so much that I can’t even read the rest of it yet.

    I assumed my first comment on an article would be a response to something that emotionally triggered me. Here it is, everyone. A well crafted pun at 3am.
