Combining rice and quinoa or other legumes is a great way to add protein to meals and keep you feeling satisfied. Try it in other meals like a Red Beans and Rice recipe. However, you can also boost the protein in this tasty salad by adding diced, cooked chicken, shrimp or tofu. Not only will these add-ins increase flavor but they’ll make for a more filling meal. If you’re a fan of avocado, add half a diced avocado for some added flavor and creaminess.
Not a fan of golden raisins, swap them out for dried cranberries or cherries.
If quinoa isn’t your thing, try this simple and versatile recipe with Minute® Ready to Serve Organic Brown Rice instead of the Minute® Ready to Serve Organic White & Red Quinoa. The possibilities are almost endless!
