Replacing White Rice With Quinoa February 16 2016

Getting sick of white rice? Although it’s a staple in lots of different dishes from around the world, you can replace it with a variety of other grains that are more beneficial to your health. Take quinoa for example, it’s higher in B-vitamins and is a rich source of protein and fiber and with all that said, it still tastes great!

The next time recipe calls for white rice, either as a side or main dish, try replacing it with quinoa. Here are a few examples:

Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad: the possibilities are endless when it comes to Tex-Mex and quinoa’s versatility makes it the perfect substitute for white rice. Mix a cup of it with diced tomatoes, green chile peppers, garbanzo beans and chopped avocados and eat it in a bowl or wrapped in a flour tortilla.

Lemon Butter Quinoa: this recipe is extremely simple and goes well with just about any chicken or fish. Melt butter in a saucepan, add quinoa, vegetable broth, chopped garlic, and lemon and then season with La Flor’s Parsley Flakes.

Teriyaki Salmon Over Quinoa: feeling fishy? Try marinating your salmon in a thick teriyaki glaze and baking in the oven until it flakes apart with a fork. Then serve it over a bed of quinoa for a delectable meal you and your friends will love.
