Wheat Watchers Meeting

Posted by imawheatwatcher on November 24, 2010

What a great time we had. The food was delicious and so easy to make. I hope to see you next month.

I showed how to prepare the recipes I have in the Wheat Watchers Cooking Class Recipes booklet I made. I think the homemade Cream of Chicken Soup was my favorite. It was easy, inexpensive, and delicious!

In the booklet there is a recipe for Magic Mix. It is inexpensive and lasts in the fridge for 8 months. We are even going to do an experiment and see if butter powder works as well as real butter. Besides using it for “cream of” soups you can also make an easy white sauce with it.

3/4 c. Magic Mix
1 c. water

In a saucepan, combine Magic Mix and water. Stir rapidly (I use a wire whisk) over medium heat until mixture starts to bubble and thicken. Yield: 1 cup.

Then I made wheat berries and added them to the sloppy joe recipe. It was so good! I loved not having to use as much ground beef and made it healthier. Here are some other ways to use cracked wheat.

1. Use as a meat extender
2. Use cracked wheat instead of rice.
3. Use cracked wheat as a hot cereal in the morning.
4. Substitute cracked wheat for nuts in gelatin or green salads.

Don’t forget next month’s meeting is on December 15th, 7 pm. We will be learning about substitutions we can use in cooking or baking.

    I seriously LOVED the sloppy joes! I am never buying the canned stuff again.
