Rice and Quinoa This recipe calls for Quinoa, Nutritional Yeast and Tamari. Quinoa (pronounced "keen-wa") is more expensive then some grains, is full of vitamins and has a wonderful flavour. It cooks up in about 20 minutes. Nutritional yeast is full of vitamins and some say tastes a bit like cheese. You can substitute good quality soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos for the Tamari. You should be able to get all the ingredients from health food stores. Vegan!

Ingredients: (approximate amounts)

1/2 cup long grain white basmati rice
1/2 cup quinoa
2 cups purified water
1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tsp Tamari
2-4 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
Cayenne to taste


Place rice, quinoa and water in a pan. Add a tiny bit of oil if you want (makes the water froth less). Bring to a boil, then let simmer, covered and without stirring,, for 15-25 minutes until all water is absorbed. Be careful not to let it burn.

When rice is done, stir in rest of ingredients and taste. Perfect the seasonings if necessary.

Serves 2-3
