Using quinoa instead of rice is a good replacement. Quinoa has fiber and it is tasty when cooked correctly. We like to brown the quinoa as part of the cooking process. This adds a nutty flavor that complements very well the Mexican style of cooking.

The sprouted lentils added to the quinoa make the combination even tastier. Legumes are a staple of our Latino style of cooking and lentils are delicious too.

What a lovely, healthy bowl! I need to get more plant-based things into my diet. I don’t observe Lent, but perhaps I can be inspired to get back into Meatless Monday
