Soaking whole grains & Brown Rice & Legumes (induces the enzyme activity and increases aminos), but it is good to change the water because this process also activates the rot process as mnetioned above and gets the spaonins and other indigestible -saccharides in solution...especially if you plan to keep it several days.

I am not sure what the concern is on the reheated food - I guess I've no problem?
Soaking polished rice/grains by rights should give a better finished chew is all - there really shouldn't be the same enzyme activity as mentioned above.

I can't stress that if you are going to soak - change the water as often as possible, particularly beans & anything kept over a day.

But then agian I don't understand the need to soak a weeks worth at once if you plan on eating every day anyway - Put them on to soak before you go to work....




Sometimes I forget to do it ... that's why I was asking if I could soak every few days or a week at a time  ... I do realize now that THAT wasn't a good idea, thanks to all u good folks out there always helping out !!

THANKS for all ur answers, I appreciate it Schluggell ... I just love to learn !!

Well some of my grains are pre soaked and roasted- they cook much quicker than regular.

The millet dish I made was good : Lots of parsley, mint, garlic, lemonjuice, small pieces of cucumber, red peppers, onion and olive oil added to cold whole millet. Almost 50 % grain 50 % veggies -very good- and really not bad with feta as well

Henriette, that sounds like a millet version of tabouleh (I don't know how to spell this).  For those of us who don't eat wheat, it will be a good summer version of that nice grain/vegetable salad.

This morning for breakfast, I roasted and cooked a little pot of millet with a little sea salt, using more water than usual, cooking it longer, and letting it sit longer before removing the lid.  I had a bowl of this
with an soft fried egg on top.  It was as good as the eggs and grits I used to eat as a child!



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
