10 Grain Pancake & Waffle Mix

Bob’s Red Mill produces some of the best quality, most nutritious grain-based products around, and we think their pancake mix is top notch. The mix (which contains freshly milled wheat, whole wheat pastry flour, rye, triticale, oats, corn, barley, soy beans, brown rice, millet, and flaxseed) creates delectable pancakes with a hearty texture that you can feel absolutely virtuous about.

Amazazi Beans

These gorgeous beans look as though they were painted by some obsessive culinary artist. Not only do they offer visual stimulation at the table, but they are also a fantastically versatile and nutritious legume!

Farro Perlato

Farro, considered to be the mother of all grains (the ancient Etruscans, Egyptians, and Romans were quite fond of it), is an ideal apparatus for incorporating more whole grains into your diet. The hulled grain is pleasantly chewy with a distinct sweet, wheat-y taste and is very nutritious (high in fiber, vitamin B, and protein). Farro perlato makes an excellent addition to vegetable dishes and soups, can be prepared following slightly modified risotto recipes, and is great served simply as a side dish or first course (just briefly sauté cooked farro perlato in olive oil, and toss with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano).

Moretti Polenta Meal

Imported from Italy

We carry two types of artisanal dry polenta from Italy under the Moretti brand: "Fioretto" is fine ground and "Taragna" is coarse ground with buckwheat. These polentas are produced in the town of Bergamo, in the Lombardia region of Italy, which is famous for its polenta. Here, the Moretti family oversees the selection of optimal corn varieties, the kernels of which are air-dried in open barns until hardened. The dried kernels are then stone ground and packed in air-tight, vacuum-sealed bricks so that the polenta's freshness and flavor is preserved.

Organic Quinoa

Quinoa is gaining quite a reputation these days. Though it cooks up similarly to starch-heavy grains like rice and couscous, it has a full set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus. And, if all of that wholesome nutritional content doesn’t sway you, just know that it tastes fantastic too – nutty with a little textural bite.

Panetelleria Lentils

The world-renowned agricultural bounty of Pantelleria, a volcanic island off of the west coast of Sicily, includes lentils, capers, and figs. The Pantelleria lentils we carry are a true delicacy: tiny, tasty, and a truly genuine Sicilian ingredient.
