Kamut is a wheat based grain but can boast that it has 40% more protein than its wheat cousins. It also has a good amount of your daily phosphorous, zinc, and manganese all of which help to detox, improve cognitive function, and help regulate hormones. Due to its high fiber content, it also keeps you going for hours, and to top it all off it is actually easier to digest than other grains, for those of you who might have a mild gluten intolerance. Now that we have touched on the basic health benefits of the grain, lets dive into the taste.

The grain has to be soaked for a bit before cooking so the Kamut is able to re-hydrate. Once cooked, the grains will still retain their shape and have a good amount of chewiness and bite to them, an added benefit for those of you who forget you have something cooking on the stove. Kamut has a buttery and nutty taste and the texture is a cooks dream. While withstanding high heat cooking, it can be transformed multiple times. Sometimes, simplest is best as shown in this recipe with crisp bacon, crunchy zucchini and hidden tomato pieces.
