Whole Grain Goodness

Mixed Whole Grains

Mixed Whole Grains For years and years it's been brown rice in my house. Brown rice, brown rice, brown rice. Organic, short grain to be specific. This old post is how I make the perfect brown rice every time.

It's nutty and filling and goes with almost everything. It's high in minerals and fiber and is everything whole grains are good for.

But, there comes a time in every mama's life when she has to reevaluate those things she cooks too much.

With all the change in our lives, a new home, new season, new, new, new, it was time for some new recipes.

Sometimes I lose hours on the internet looking for recipe ideas, design idea, kid stuff... It's a black hole! That said, often I come out with a new outlook, perspective, project list;)

I found this recipe on 101cookbooks.com. I love her site. Clean recipes, gorgeous images, bright ideas.

But you know I never go by a recipe. It's just not in my blood. So I've been making my own varietals of these mixed grains. Most recently this one has been my favorite:

1 cup short grain brown rice

1 cup quinoa

1/2 cup millet

-Rinse all of these and put them in a pot.

-Add a couple pinches of sea salt and (purified) water to about 1/2" above the top of the grains.

-Bring it to a boil.

-Then down to a simmer.

-Cover and cook for 45 min.

-Turn the flame off, but don't remove the top for at least 5 min.

-Fluff. Serve.

I've been topping it with fresh tomatoes, avocado, marinated tofu, chick peas, gomasio... Fresh summer dinner!
