Living Without's Favorites: Meals Made Easy
Want to boost nutritional density and expand your gluten-free grain repertoire—but where to start? Reach for quinoa mixes from Free Choice Foods. These wholesome blends of all-natural ingredients are a quick and convenient way to introduce super-nutritious quinoa (read: loaded with protein, calcium, iron, B-complex, zinc) to your menu without having to rinse it or wonder how to fix it. Just add water and a bit of vegetable oil, cook for 30 minutes or less—and you’ve got a delicious dish. We do mean delicious. We served Quinoa Vegetable Pilaf family-style to a tableful of guests and had to fight to get our share. No one could pronounce it (keen-wah) but they all loved it. Free Choice Foods sells six high-quality mixes, three varieties with quinoa and three with rice. Certified gluten free by CSA.
