Cooking brown rice with red quinoa turns it into an interesting dish. Toast the quinoa first in a dry skillet so it stays crunchy after simmering. Begin cooking the brown rice and halfway through add the quinoa and let them cook together.

cups water
Salt, to taste
1cup long-grain brown rice
½cup red quinoa

1. In a saucepan, bring the water and a large pinch of salt to a boil. Add the rice, lower the heat, and cover the pan. Simmer for 20 minutes (it will not be tender).

2. In a dry skillet over medium heat, cook the quinoa, stirring with a heatproof rubber spatula, for 5 minutes, or until it starts to turn darker. Tip the quinoa into the rice, re-cover the pan, and continue cooking for 20 minutes, or until the rice and quinoa are both tender. Total simmering time is 40 minutes.
