This is a no shopping, no reading recipe. All it requires is rooting around on your shelves for items you already have – things that will thicken – and an approximation for the correct amount of water.
Examples of thickening grains; rice, quinoa, oats, bulger, and couscous
For the water to grain ratio, it’s about 2 to 1. Two cups of water for every cup of solids.
When I make this, I place the dry items in a pot, then eyeball the water to cover it.
Here’s what I included with this batch.
Quinoa blend. This thickening grain comprised the bulk of the mixture.
Heat on medium, stirring occasionally.
Taste test for doneness.
*Tip: If the grains still need more cooking time as the water begins to evaportate – add more.
