you know that delicious rice you get from turkish restaurants, with the risoni pasta in it? obviously rora hasn't been able to eat it in the past 5 years...
i decided to try concocting a GF version and it was far more delicious than i expected! looked great too :)
only rough amounts as i didn't measure anything...
1 tablespoon red or black quinoa, placed in a 1/4 cup measure and filled up with
1 cup basmati rice
2 tspns vegie stock concentrate (or chicken, or 2 stock cubes)
finely chopped parsley, to taste
splash of olive oil
soak the quinoa in a bowl of boiling water for about 20-30 minutes. rinse well and place in rice cooker.
add rice, stock and required amount of water (i measure with my finger and thumb so no idea how much, is it 2 or 3 cups water to each cup rice?) and cook.
stir and leave to sit for 5 mins.
add parsley and oil and stir again, serve
we had ours with bbq'd chicken and lamb (with sumac sprinkled on), a tossed salad, dips and turkish bread (not for rora though next time i'm going to try making her a foccacia with kalonji seeds on it ;))
