    Alternative – just rub a piece of fresh garlic over dough crust or sprinkle a pinch of garlic powder over dough

Note: this is a biscuit recipe base; therefore, it is more crumbly than a yeast bread base. You can easily use spelt to make a nice yeast bread.

Spelt is an ancient gluten grain from Europe and Asia. It is high in protein. It is a very good source of B vitamins as well as the minerals manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, iron, zinc, selenium, & potassium. It also contains phytochemicals which act as antioxidants in the body.
Kamut is also an ancient wheat. It is higher in protein than wheat but less than spelt. It has all essential protein building blocks, but its proportion of methionine is a little lower. Its nutrient profile is similar to spelt.
