Quinoa, a grain that looks like round sesame seeds, contains more protein than other grains. When paired with rice and millet, it provides a great nutty flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook 2 minutes. Add rice, quinoa, and millet; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in broth and salt. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Step 2

for your toddler: Serve a spoonful as a side dish with meat, fish, poultry, or tofu.

We like this with all kinds of things, as the flavors are fairly neutral.  Good way to introduce quinoa and millet.
