I'm wanting to stop having rice as my staple and try something else. I was thinking to try wheat however I never heard that people eat pure wheat daily like they eat pure rice daily like in the far east.
What I mean to say is wheat is often associated with bread, biscuits, cereals which have extra ingredients which I want to avoid and I don't think you want to eat those as part of the main meal anyway. I know it comes as pasta and sphaghetti but i'm not sure if that is the correct way to eat it as a staple? Have people traditionally cooked wheat like they would rice or has it always been used as pasta and sphaghetti but never as a staple like rice has in the far east?
I've just seen a bag of wheat grain at my supermarket so I'm thinking do I just get it and cook it like rice but since this is unheard of(at least to me) as a staple I'm wondering if there's something wrong with it?
