20 minute seasoned whole grain mix - FANCY PANTS Blend!

Submitted by: WILDFIREWENCH

Introduction

I try to cook with a lot of non-processed whole grains, but rice gets boring. I started playing with different combination of grains, herbs, flavours, nuts, and veggies. All ingredients are optional or substitutable. play with it and enjoy! Quinoa and Millet are a nice blend because they both take 20 minutes to cook, fallow 1:2 grains to liquid ratio, complement eachother in texture and taste. also millet is much cheeper then quinoa, so mixing them is good for teh budget!

Ingredients

    1/2C Quinoa
    1/2C Millet
    1Tbsp chopped nuts (eg. pine nuts, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc.)
    2Tbsp dries herbs(eg. Italian blend, Cajun, Herb De Provence, kona coffee blend, etc.)
    1 Tbsp Bragg's amino sauce
    1/2 Tbsp olive oil or other quality oil like macadamia nut, grape seed, sesame, etc.
    1 carrot - finely copped to size of corn kernels (also try yams, zucchini, squash, tofu, onion, etc.)
    3 dried mushroom (broken into crumbs),
    1C vegetable broth

Directions

makes 5 - 1/2 cup servings or about 2 1/2 cups of cooked grains

***grains cook at a 1:2 ration with liquid. I find 1/2C dried grains per person works well.

1. Finely dice veggies and nuts into teeny tiny pieces
2. Mix dry goods together in rice cooker pot. add 1 cup vegetable broth and 1 cup water, oil and Bragg's.
3. turn on rice cooker or bring to a boil, cover and cook for about 20 minutes.
4. fluff with fork and serve.

***Left-over grains are AWESOME!!!! use in home made stuffing, veggie patties, salads, stir-fries or like oatmeal for breakfast.****

    Hi, sorry the measurements didn't show up. i'll adjust the recipe to show the preportions... it follows the same ratios as rice (1 part grains : 2 parts liquid. This one uses 1/2C quinoa, 1/2 C millet, 1 C Veggie Broth, 1 C water.
