them to pop.

• Once the test kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn to the oil. Cover the pan
and remove it from the heat for 30 seconds. (This gets all the kernels ready to
pop.) Return the pan to the heat. As the popping gets under way, gently shake
the pan, continuously, so that the popped corn doesn’t burn. When the popping
slows down so that there are seconds between the pops, remove the pan from
the heat, take off the lid, and pour the popcorn at once into a large bowl.

• Melt the butter and drizzle it over the popped corn. Add the salt last. Serve.

• NOTE Many cooks believe that adding salt to popcorn too soon results in tough

• VARIATION For popcorn with more taste and less fat, reduce or eliminate the
butter and add Spanish smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, cayenne pepper, chili
powder, curry powder, or cumin—or your favorite combination of the above!

Spelt is a close relative of wheat and was widely cultivated in the Middle Ages,
though over time it lost out to other wheats. When harvested, spelt has a tough
hull on the grains that must be removed before it can be milled into flour.

Spelt provides potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, and the B
vitamins niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin. As a close relative of wheat, its
nutrition profile is much the same, though it appears to provide more niacin.
Spelt also contains gluten, making it inappropriate for people with celiac disease
or on gluten-free diets.

One and one-half cups of cooked organic
whole spelt pasta provide 190 calories, 40 g carbohydrate, 8 g
protein, 1.5 g fat, 5 g dietary fiber, and 1.8 mg iron.

Spelt is available as whole grain, flour, pasta, bread, and sprouted grain bread.
Like other whole grains, spelt should be kept away from light, heat, and

Like other whole grains, spelt should be kept away from light, heat, and
moisture. The flour is more vulnerable to rancidity and loss of nutrients, so it
should be stored in the refrigerator.

½ pound spelt pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ cup water
1 carrot, peeled and cut into 2-inch × ½-inch strips
1 medium zucchini, cut into ¼-inch slices
½ small eggplant, cut into ¼-inch slices
½ red onion, cut into ¼-inch slices
½ bell pepper, any color, seeded and cut into thin strips
¼ cup pasta sauce OR marinara sauce

2 or 3 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning OR herbes de Provence
Salt and pepper

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

• Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook according to the
package directions until it is al dente. Try to time it so that the pasta will be
ready very shortly after the vegetables are cooked.

• In a large skillet, heat the oil and water over medium heat. Add the carrot,
zucchini, eggplant, onion, and pepper. Stir to coat them with oil and water.
Cook the vegetables for about 10 minutes, stirring only occasionally, until they
are just heated through and soft enough to eat. They should still be crisp and
colorful. Turn off heat, but leave the pan on the burner.

• Add pasta sauce to the vegetables. Add another ¼ cup of water to thin the
sauce, if necessary. Add garlic and Italian seasoning. Add salt and pepper to

• When the pasta is al dente, drain it and add it directly to the skillet with the
vegetables. Adjust the seasoning, if needed. Transfer to a serving bowl.
