Recipe of the Month
Enjoy a warming winter beverage inspired by ancient Tibetan Tsampa.
Put 2 cups of boiling water into blender and drizzle in a heaping tablespoon of einkorn flour. Let sit in a covered pot for10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add maple syrup to taste. Top with a dash of nutmeg. Serve steaming hot or as a refreshing cold beverage.
Tsampa, astaple food of Tibetans, is a grain beverage made from mixing tea with roasted barley or wheat flour, yak butter and spices. A dumpling can be made by increasing the proportion of flour. Some folks add grated cheese. Lacking yak butter, we added South River Miso for flavoring.
Tsampa is enjoyed for breakfast by the Dali Lama.
