Khorasan wheat, also known as “camel’s tooth,” is distributed under its trademarked name, Kamut. It is an ancient wheat rumored to have been found in Egyptian tombs and was said to have been the pharaohs’ wheat. Another legend suggests it was the wheat used aboard Noah’s ark. Kamut is always organic. It is a great base for many dishes, as it is hearty and light at the same time. It is easier to cook if soaked first for an hour or so in cold water. When combined with fresh corn and peas, it is delicious as a side dish.
These and other great recipes are from The Culinary Institute of America's cookbook, Mediterranean Cooking at Home.
