Happy New Year Everyone!  I hope 2016 is finding you well.  I know it’s that time of year when everyone is getting their healthy on. The Gym’s are being flooded with the masses and we are all set to take on the year! I know I am!

About a year ago I found a love for black rice. Pursuing the grocery stores looking for something “different” and always on the hunt for a nutritious something I can add to my family’s dinner, I came upon black rice.  What? What is this beautiful bag of goodness?  Why I have not ever seen it before?  Have I been blind?  These are the questions I asked myself when googling the ancient grain. Astonished at my lack of knowledge for something so ancient and very, very nutritious.  I mean, all the rage is brown rice, right?  I made the decision to purchase the elusive black rice and off I went home to figure out what to do with it.  These black rice quinoa grain bowls were a hit!

Make them. Make them often.

There are a few things that you can do to make these black rice quinoa grain bowls a quick and easy weeknight meal.  Everything in this dish can be prepared ahead of time for a quick, delicious, meal.  If you want to learn how to cook quinoa in a way to coax out all of the delicious flavor, check out my post here on cooking the perfect quinoa.
