As we have modified our diets over the years we removed all the “white foods”.
Rice, potatoes, pasta, bread…
But there was a grain that was sorta white, and had more protein and there were so many things that you could use it for. So, we added that into our rotation, in moderation.
I got this recipe from my MIL and it’s a great substitute for rice – something to “sop” up the sauce!
It’s pretty versatile, you can add different veggies as binders, or cook the veggies with the quinoa. Many options!
