Kamut w/ Roasted Vegetables

When the cooler weather hits I love eating root vegetables and grains. Kamut is a grain you may not have tried. It is chewy and so delicious and has 30% more protein than wheat. People who are Gluten sensitive or can often tolerate it as an alternative to wheat based grains. Plus it is so delicious!
