Rice and Quinoa

Minute® Rice and Quinoa is a blend of four popular gluten free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes.  The four grains include:

  • Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
  • Thai Red Rice - also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
  • Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass.  It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
  • Quinoa (pronounced "KEEN-wah") – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds.  It cooks up light and fluffy.  The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
