Spanish Rice made with Quinoa
Very easy to make. Soak the seeds for an hour or 10 minutes in HOT water. Strain through a mesh strainer.  Use half the amount of Quinoa that you would use for rice. So this recipe calls for 1 cup rice. Use 1/2 cup Quinoa. Takes about 15-20 minutes to cook.
    Serves 4
