Give up Rice for Quinoa

Yesterday, I read an article in the New York Times about making a vegetarian stir-fry with quiona replacing the rice. It just so happens I was planning on a veggie stir fry for dinner and also had a little bit of red quinoa already in my pantry. The stir-fry I made was pretty basic with onions, carrots, celery, broccoli, yellow squash, bell pepper, soy beans and bok choy (I had a lot of veggies that needed to be used)! So while I cooked up the veggies, I prepared the red quiona which takes less time than brown rice. The dinner was delicious and simple, not only does the quiona add a nutty texture but also great crunchy texture too. I think quiona stir-fry in my house will become a staple! Have you ever replaced rice with quiona?

I do that a lot. When we order Chinese food, I don't eat the white rice they give you with your food and I put my steamed veggies and chicken over some quinoa. It's not exactly the same as white rice, but it's VERY good!

I made stir-fry with it a couple weeks ago :) Very yummy stuff. It's healthier, yummier and cooks faster than rice. Why go back?

Quinoa is amazing stuff. I made a pilaf today with green pepper, carrot, tomato, garlic, chicken, Italian spices, and mixed in some goat cheese at the end. I think I prefer quinoa to rice!

I love the versatility of quinoa, I use it all the time for salads by adding a bunch of raw veggies, olive oil, sea salt and some braggs soy sauce it is great...or mixed with cinnamon, apples and honey for a sweet treat. It is so loaded with nutrients...it is considered a superfood...love it!!
