Hearty Quinoa & Rice Risotto

This is not the usual risotto. I wanted a flavorful dish with great texture and all the nutrients that whole grains have to offer. Plus it’s all made in one pot.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1.5 cup short grain brown rice
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 5 cup vegetable broth divided

Served With (per serving):

  • 2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 avocado

Directions:

  1. Sautee onion for 8 minutes on medium heat. Stir frequently
  2. Add brown rice and 3 cup vegetable broth. Cover. Reduce heat to medium low to simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally
  3. Add quinoa and 2 cup vegetable broth and continue cooking for 15 minutes
  4. Remove from heat and let steam covered for 10 minutes
  5. Serve with a bed of spinach and avocado
