Side Dish: Rice and Quinoa Cooked at the Same Time! In the Same Machine!

Really folks, it CAN be done.

I had the rice cooker ready to go for the kids, and thought, “Oh well. Might as well try it.”

My rice cooker came with a metal expansion pan that you just put on top.

First I tried to cover the base with plastic wrap…..yea….don’t do that. Then I switched to aluminum foil. I put a ½ cup quinoa in the foil and carefully added 1 cup water. I gently and carefully pulled the foil up, so that the outside ring of holes were visible.

We came home from the gym and both were cooked to perfection! I served them with  coconut chicken curry. I’m not the biggest fan of quinoa, so I mix half rice and half quinoa. Oh and I ALWAYS rinse it after it cooks.
