My Quinoa Bowl recipe With Mushrooms, Onions, Broccoli, Corn And Tamari Sauce is just like it says. No surprises. I am always looking for new recipes, but I think I have plenty as it is.
I usually eat the same things all the time, over and over, but do a few recipe tweaks like this one occasionally. Of course, as usual, it’s an easy quick one to make. Here’s how I do it…
My Quinoa Bowl recipe With Mushrooms, Onions, Broccoli, Corn And Tamari Sauce
- Re-heat your quinoa in a bowl
- Saute your mushrooms and onions
- You can lightly steam your broccoli like I do or add it to the mushrooms and onions
- It takes about ten minutes to saute
- And, about five or so to lightly steam the broccoli
- I just open a can of organic corn and drain and rinse in a colander and sprinkle it over all
- I add pepper and organic tamari sauce
As you might know, all rice has arsenic and other metals. It’s really good at absorbing these elements from the ground. I have gone back and forth about whether to eat rice or not because of arsenic just like I have with grain because of gluten. But, I determined that no amount of arsenic is a good thing to eat, but I haven’t decided to drop all grains or not, yet. Sweet potatoes are more nutritious if you’d rather.
Now, you can lessen the amount of arsenic when you cook your rice by adding a lot more water to the pot and then rinsing it in a colander after cooking. But, even if you buy organic rice, it will still have arsenic in it. Can’t get around it. Although, rice grown in California seems to be one that has the least of this very toxic ingredient.
I know billions of people eat rice, but when there is an alternative grain like quinoa I will use it. I mean, you can also eat burgers, fries and a host of other unhealthy junk and snack foods. But, the health information is out there and a plant based whole food diet wins out every time for weight loss, better health and longer life.
Note- before you change your diet consult your doctor.
