Double Grain Protein Pot

img_1667

I love this super easy, one pot dish! It is so versatile and it keeps for several days in the fridge. Cooking various grains at one time allows you to save time AND to reap the benefits of both (or all) foods. As for millet and quinoa, they are both a great source of protein and magnesium. Magnesium helps cardiovascular health as well as muscle and bone health. And quinoa is one of the only main sources that contains all essential amino acids.

Double Grain Protein Pot

  • 3 1/2 cups water or vegetable broth

  • 1 cup millet

  • 1 cup quinoa

  1. Rinse and drain the grains.

  2. Bring the water or broth up to a boil and add in the grains.

  3. Cover, turn to low, and simmer for 20 minutes with the lid on.

  4. After 20 min., remove from heat.

  5. Let it stand, COVERED, for 10 min.

  6. Uncover, fluff with a fork and it’s ready to serve.

Add this to a green salad or add in your favorite veggies and seasonings or even fruit.
