Rice with quinoa and vegetables recipe

This stir fry of rice with quinoa and vegetables It is a perfect garnish for your vegetable or meat dishes. I really like to use the mixture of three rices (white rice, red rice and wild rice) in the dishes, because it brings more nutrients and also different textures to the dish. The red quinoa I have used is a variety of quinoa and it is highly nutritious with low fat and high protein content. Quinoa with rice and vegetables is a varied combination that will give you a lot of energy and strength.

Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1

Wash the quinoa well in a strainer with cold water to remove saponin, a toxin it contains. Put the quinoa in a saucepan and cover it with double the amount of water. Bring to a boil and cook 12 minutes until beans are tender.


Cook the rice in boiling water until soft.


Chop the onion, bell pepper, ginger, and turmeric small, grate the carrot and cut the chard and cabbage into thin strips (I did it on a food processor).


Heat a frying pan with oil and sauté the onion with the turmeric, ginger and bell pepper. When the sofrito is ready add the cabbage, the chard and the carrot and cook until the vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally.


Next, add the quinoa and rice to the pan and sauté 2 more minutes so that the ingredients are integrated.


Serve the stir fry rice with quinoa and vegetables As a main dish or as a garnish for vegetable or meat dishes.
