Forget about the white rice. Once you eat brown rice it is hard to go back.

Whole grains make for a wonderful stir fry. The secret is to pressure the grains and let the brown rice chill over night. And of course the sesame oil really adds the flavor.

grain-quinoa[1]Quinoa is another one of the super grains. It contains more protein than any other grain. In fact, it is considered a complete protein since it contains all eight essential amino acids.

Quinoa is also high in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohydrates than most grains. It is loaded with niacin, iron, phosphorus, and potassium, and is high in lysine.

Quinoa will expand to four times its original volume.

The staple of the ancient Incan civilization, quinoa was called “the mother grain.” When planting this highly revered grain, the Inca indians used a solid gold shovel. Quinoa is still used as a staple in South America.

Use quinoa in side dishes, soups, cereals, breads, pancakes, and waffles.

The Electric Pressure Cooker is Chef Brad’s favorite pan for cooking breakfast cereals. It cooks fast and turns to a keep warm mode. Grains stay hot and in perfect condition for hours when cooked using the electric pressure cooker.

Most grains do well in the pressure cooker. Natural release method is recommended. Meaning after suggested cooking time turn off heat and let the pressure come down naturally.

 

The Quinoa Family

Quinoa cooks just like white rice. There are three varieties of quinoa, white, red and black. White is easy to hide in things. It is fluffy and is hard to find when added to dishes. Black does not cook up as fluffy as the white and red, but it is so pretty when added to dishes. Red quinoa is perhaps my favorite. I love it. I have added it to almost anything you can dream up. It is the perfect meat extender or substitute. I adore it.
