Cooking with Bob's Red Mill Review and #Giveaway

Bob's Red Mill is a family owned and operated company that has been grinding and packaging it's own products for 30 years. Founded in 1978 by Bob and Charlee Moore, Bob's Red Mill is committed to producing natural foods in the natural way.

 Bob's Red Mill has sent me their Bountiful Black Bean Soup Mix, Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous, and their Bob's Red Mill Cookbook to review.

Bountiful Black Bean Soup Mix

Eating healthy is something I strive for most of the time. I believe by eating healthy my family and I will feel better and hopefully live longer. A part of eating healthy is getting enough fiber in your diet. The recommended intake of fiber from the NFC is about 32 grams a day. In just one serving of Bob's Red Mill Bountiful Black Bean Soup Mix you get 23 grams. That is more than half of your daily value. I love the fact that such a small amount will give me the majority of fiber for the day. I even tried out the recipe they had on the back (Bountiful Black Bean Soup Mix) and it was delicious. I thought I didn't like beans very much but this soup mix has changed my mind. It is a hearty meal or even side dish that will fill you up.

Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
You may be wondering what is the difference between regular flour and whole wheat pastry flour. Pastry flour has less protein than all purpose flour which makes it less glutenous, which will make your baked goods feathery light. The whole wheat pastry flour is 100% stone ground and contains the germ, endosperm, and bran from the wheatberrys. I made little chocolate cakes with this pastry flour and they were delicious. It didn't take long before they were all gone.

Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous

Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous are small balls of toasted whole wheat flour. Eat 1/3 cup of this couscous and you will get seven grams of protein and five grams of fiber. A very healthy alternative to pasta or rice. This is a very versatile product that can be used on salads or even as a side dish. I chose to eat it as a side dish. Preparing this is easy and simple. Boil water, add couscous, boil and cover.
The flavor was nutty and a little chewy. I like the fact that it is a healthier alternative to pasta or rice which I have an addiction to.

Bob's Red Mill Cookbook

The Bob's Red Mill Cookbook is a collection of healthy recipes featuring their products. I love this cookbook. While there are no pictures it makes up for it in the easy layout of the recipes. The cookbook is separated into six categories: Morning food, salads, soups, snacks and sides, main dishes, and sweets. Throughout the cookbook are little bits of useful information on grains or legumes and how to cook them, which is great if you have never heard of it. Another great feature of the cookbook is that it makes it easy for vegetarians, vegans, and people with gluten intolerance to find recipes by labeling the recipes with a picture key.

I was very satisfied with all of these products and will purchase Bob's Red Mill products in the future. For their full line of products visit Bob's Red Mill website.
