5. Birds like them. But on a serious note...
Treat it like bulgur wheat. Soak it for a while in boiling water (boiled elsewhere and poured on top) and then use it in stews or cook it like rice. It is of course much coarser (no pun intended), but it does make a nice base for hearty vegetables in a stir fry or sauce (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, chard, beets, bok choi, etc.)

              - Hmm, mine love peanuts  ThomasQED   Oct-06-10 10:28 AM   #8

                          - Now I'm imagining a whole little army  ThomasQED   Oct-06-10 10:40 AM   #12
