My husband and I love rice dishes, but we found we weren't fond of just swapping the rice for quinoa but found this to be a really good mix.

  • 3/4 c. rice, brown, organic
  • 1/4 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 1 1/4 c. chicken broth, organic, free-range
  • 3 stlk. celery stalk, fresh, organic
  • 12 oz. bean sprouts, fresh, organic
  • 1 sml. bell pepper, green, fresh, organic
  • 1 sml. onion, any type, organic
  • 1/2 bell pepper, red, fresh, organic
  • 3 mushrooms, white, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic

In a separate pan boil the brown rice/quinoa mix in the broth of your choice. Let stand while you prepare the veggies. Melt the coconut oil in a large pan ( I use a dutch oven as it yields a lot when everything's combined) Add onion, peppers, celery, mushrooms, sea salt and saute till onions are translucent and peppers are soft Add bean sprouts or green beans Cook for about 5 minutes, mixing well Add fully cooked rice/quinoa mixture Stir well and serve as a side dish, or add some cooked chicken or ground beef into the mix for a main dish.
