- 1 Tbs Olive or Coconut Oil
- 1-1/2 cup brown rice
- 1/2 cup Quinoa, rinsed in strainer
- 1 cup salsa (READ INGREDIENTS! It should only have natural ingredients.)
- 1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup frozen sweet corn
In large skillet over medium heat, add olive/coconut oil. Heat for 1 minute and add brown rice and quinoa. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add 2-1/4 cup warm water and salsa. Bring to boil then cover. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until rice and quinoa are soft.
Combine black beans and corn with rice mixture. While stirring constantly, cook only until heated through.
RICE TIP: The addition of quinoa to the brown rice increases fiber and protein to the meal without changing the texture and taste of the rice. Try sneaking in other healthy grains into your rice such as whole wheat cous cous or millet. Your family won't tell the difference or even know they're eating some great power grains!
