I love to serve this, instead of potatoes, alongside a steak or lamb chops. You could also turn this into a stand alone meal for 3 by adding 2 cups of roasted vegetables (any kind or a variety), 3/4 cup cooked chicken meat & serve it with a side of my Fried Bananas... Yum!
This rice has a great creamy texture & wonderful flavor. Makes a terrific side with Asian dishes or alongside steak, chicken or pork. You could also turn this into a vegetarian meal for 3 by adding 3 cups of roasted or steamed vegetables... such as a colorful combo of carrots, cauliflower & broccoli or whatever are your faves.
A kick of spice, a burst of tang, a hint of sweetness & a nice bit of crunch makes this dish simply awesome & one you'll want to make over & over again. It even makes a fantastic, healthy, anytime snack. Because of it's color scheme this makes a perfect, healthy addition to your Christmas holiday table. Your family & guests are going to love it!
Serves: 4 as a side dish or 2 for a light meal
Quinoa (keen'wah) is an ancient American whole grain. It's nutritionally rich, has a fluffy texture & a great nutty flavor. Additionally, it has the best amino acid profile of all grains, is as versatile as rice, is "heart healthy" & gluten free.

Adding the 3 tasty, healthy power ingredients to Jasmine Rice... avocado oil, turmeric & kale is what makes this side dish rock!
Revised & updated 1/22/2021 - Of all the rice I've tasted, jasmine rice is the undisputed jewel among them all. It has a wonderful nutty flavor & is one of my favorite side dishes. It cooks up perfectly every time... give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
