Healthy Eating Tip: Cook Two Whole Grains Together

The other day I went to cook up some millet, but I only had a quarter cup. So I did a little culinary experiment and cooked it with 3/4 cup quinoa. The result? Whole grain awesomeness. Cooking these two whole grains together came out so tasty, like a completely new whole grain. It had a creamy and tender consistency, and tasted slightly nutty.

So I'm sharing my little tip with you since I'm so excited about it. The next time you boil up some whole grains, mix two different ones together. Since they all take about 20 to 30 minutes to cook, it's OK to mix them. Try cooking brown rice and quinoa, or millet and barley. It's a great way to get the fiber, protein, vitamins, and nutrients from whole grains, while keeping your taste buds guessing.
