Einkorn is an ancient cereal that is more difficult to process and yields less than today's hybrid wheat, but its nutritional properties are many times better. Also, unlike modern wheat, einkorn is not susceptible to chemical treatment and it can not force it to grow faster or in larger quantities. On the other hand, it does not absorb harmful elements from the soil (such as heavy metals), so even if it is grown in contaminated soil, it will not affect it or make it harmful.
Einkorn in the form of grains can be cooked as if you were cooking risotto - cook in a large saucepan and add your favorite ingredients - be it vegetables, mushrooms, seafood or something else. You can also use it as a substitute for rice, in a salad or in combination with vegetables.
