The other day, I opened up my blog to type up a recipe and I got a notification. Most of my notifications are the usual responses to my recipes but this one was different. I had to read it a couple of times to make sure I was reading it correctly. Rebecca, from www.simplerecipeideas.com, had compiled a top 20 list of the best Brown Rice and Quinoa recipes and mine made the list! I was honored that my Quinoa, Brown Rice and Black Beans was chosen for her top 20 and thank you Rebecca for including me and mine in your list!
When I came up with this recipe, I was had just discovered the Seeds of Change Brown Rice and Quinoa pouches. They are so delicious, I could finish a whole pouch in one go (which could usually be enough for 2 servings!). To make myself feel a little less guilty, I decided to add some veggies and beans, give it a southwest-ish flavor profile, and voila! I ended up making a delicious meal out of the pouch! It’s great because this is a 10 minute meal recipe, or a great side dish. Check it out at the link above and tell me what you think!
