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.
|Salt, to taste|
|1||cup long-grain brown rice|
|½||cup 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.
