Freezer Helps: Brown Rice / Quinoa

It is great having single portion sizes of brown rice/quinoa mix ready to pull out for a quick lunch or dinner side dish.

I like to bake my brown rice using Alton Brown's recipe as I prefer a coarser texture.


After soaking, I cook my quinoa on the stovetop just like white rice. Simmer 20 minutes covered. Turn off burner and let sit 10 minutes covered.

Using 1-1/2 cups dry brown rice and 1 cup dry quinoa worked perfectly. Once cooked, mix together and fill containers in the portion sizes you use.
