Quinoa and Brown Rice blend is a stupid simple recipe that for some reason I just hadn’t thought to make until recently. We were trolling through our local wholesale club and the kids, as usual were on the hunt for tasty samples when I came across one they could actually eat! Organic brown rice and quinoa blend. They went crazy for it! We’ve had a bit of a problem previously because, while Bug loves rice and Goose loves quinoa, neither will eat a ton of the other on its own. And this blend, they BOTH ate with gusto. Win!
But, I saw no reason to buy the premixed bag of quinoa and brown rice (even though I’m sure that’d be super convenient because if I recall it was 90-second microwave packs). Instead, I jotted it down in my memory bank to mix up at home. It was so simple I have no idea why I didn’t think of it myself!
Quinoa Brown Rice Blend
1 cup quinoa, raw
1.5 cups brown rice, raw
2 cups Easy Slow Cooker Vegetable Broth
3 cups water (or appropriate amount for your rice cooker)
Place all ingredients in rice cooker and cook on white rice setting.
Alternately, you can prepare…
A HUGE hit. And a great lunchbox addition.
