Dirty Quinoa Rice
Chef:Brandi Doming


Brandi is the creator of the blog The Vegan 8. She has been a passionate cook for years, but it was her husband’s painful disease with gout that led her to choose a vegan lifestyle. She chose a healthier way of eating for her family that ignited a passion to create unique and delicious recipes that also happen to be vegan, gluten-free and oil-free. Her blog has become very popular, as it focuses on 8 ingredients or less, so anybody can make them with ease. Brandi believes in using nature’s powerful whole foods to nourish and promote a healthier body and a healthier mind. She enjoys creating food that everybody loves, whether vegan or not. Brandi’s belief is that food can be easy, use minimal ingredients, yet still be shockingly delicious.

Just toss the delicious ingredients of this recipe in a pot, cook and savor. Red quinoa, long grain brown rice and some wonderfully flavorful seasonings combine for a dish that is wholesome, nutritious and incredibly easy to make. Enjoy!
