Quinoa is high and protein and the only plant-base super food that contains 9 amino acids in one product. So.. I find sneaky opportunities to add quinoa to any dish – fried rice, chicken porridge, and now MEATBALLS! My kids squirmed at the sight of quinoa because it tastes weird. I declare this a #MomWin because the little humans I feed did not complain at all. I am making a big batch to freeze to keep me sane on a lazy day.
We’ve been hit by a nasty flu this past week, thankfully all of us are now feeling great. Arroz Caldo is a simple dish that is hearty and comforting. This dish is made during the cooler months or when someone is sick. It is usually made with a mix of glutinous and regular rice, chicken, garlic and lots of ginger. I’ve made a healthier version by adding white quinoa to rice. It’s a great way to introduce quinoa to your family, the chicken broth and ginger slightly masked the nutty flavor of quinoa.
