Yummy Quinoa And Rice

Recommended Posts

I am enjoying leftover quinoa and rice for lunch. I cooked up a turkey breast last night and I was looking for a side dish. I remembered that i have an open box f quinoa in the pantry. I decided to mix it up a bit, so I mixed the quinoa in with about twice as much Lundburg's wild rice mix (1 c. rice to about 1/2 c. quinoa 2 1/2 c. H20) and cooked it up in Chicken broth made from powder (about a Tbsp of HerbOx). While that was boiling I chopped (more like diced) up a carrot, half and onion and some small broccoli florets. I sauteed them for a couple minutes until they were just soft and tossed them in the quinoa/rice once it was finished. YUMMY! :D

I have to give myself a pat on the back while I'm at it. I made gravy for the turkey, and it didn't turn to paste! :)

This is precisely why I like being coeliac, well not really, but being coeliac has opened up new doors in the pantry so to speak. It has forced me to try new and different foods, that I would never have thought of trying in a million of years. Gone are the days, where we will have this and that, now I think oh I would like to try that, and maybe see what I can do with this. It is bringing out the inventiveness in me. I'm no longer a predictable cook, nobody quite knows what is going to be on the table next. I've had to brush up on my cooking skills, but there's nothing wrong with that either.

Quinoa is one of those things I have discovered,and is so versatile, as in can be used for breakfast lunch and tea. But with rice, I never ever thought of mixing the two, but I will give it a go.
