Farro Sometimes labeled as emmer wheat, farro is rich in fiber. Its chewy texture makes it particularly satisfying.
Rye berries This high-protein grain is more slowly digested than other grains. Combine with beans for a particularly good match.
Spelt Often mistaken for farro (and visa versa). It may be well tolerated by wheat sensitive folks, too. Use spelt just as you would wheat, and look for spelt flakes, too, which can be used like rolled oats.
Wheat berries These whole, unprocessed kernels are great cooked for pilafs or as a nutty addition to grain salads.
Wild Rice Actually the seed of a marsh grass plant, this grain-like seed needs to be thoroughly cleaned before cooking and offers a striking contrast in grain-based sides and salads.
