Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 c. red quinoa
    1/2 c. millet(or substitute rice or use all quinoa)
    1 cup Minute Brown Rice
    1 onion, chopped
    3 small zucchini, diced (about 3 cups)
    3 Tb. butter or olive oil
    1 Tb. dried parsley
    1 clove garlic, minced

    salt & pepper to taste


Cook the quinoa, rice and millet:
Traditional Method - Follow the directions on the package. The millet will require a longer cooking time so you could probably put in the total amount of water needed for the quinoa and millet, start the millet cooking, then add the quinoa about half way through.

Cook Rice according to instructions given.

Heat a skillet with the butter or olive oil. Add the chopped onion and cook while you dice the zucchini. Add the zucchini to the skillet and sauté until just tender. Add the garlic to a cleared area in the skillet and cook it for about a minute until it becomes aromatic. Add the parsley, salt, and pepper, and combine it with the other ingredients.

Gently mix together therice, quinoa, millet and vegetables. Check the amount and salt & pepper and add more if needed.
