  • Greek White Rice with Red Quinoa. Net weight 1 kg ( Pack of 4 boxes of 250g each ):

    All our rice is grown in small Greek family farms in Serres’s rivers and fields. The relatively extensive sunshine in September and October, in particular, is conducive to the good nutrition of the grain which is important for its quality and nutritional value. Rice is composed of carbs, with small amounts of protein and virtually no fat. Meanwhile, the abundant moisture, high temperatures and sunshine during the summer favour the growth and premium quality of rice.

    This lovely blend makes an excellent side for meats, or a delicious base for pour-over meals, stir-fries or it can be mixed into salads. Quinoa makes a fantastic partner for rice. Quinoa is full of fiber and protein. Our mix provides healthy carbs that will encourage your body to slow down the digestive process and help keep your digestive track cleared out.

    Is Quinoa healthier than rice? : A cup of quinoa will also provide twice the protein and about 5 grams more fiber than the same amount of white rice. Due to this higher quantity of protein and fiber, quinoa is not only the healthier choice but will also fill you up faster, allowing for smaller portion sizes. Out of all the superfoods out there, quinoa is one of the few which really lives up to the hype and deserves a place in the pantry. Is high in protein, fibre, B-vitamins, magnesium, calcium and vitamin E. It's also naturally gluten-free, making it a great option for those who can’t consume gluten.

    All that to say, don’t cut rice from your diet just because you’ve seen or heard that quinoa is a healthier replacement. You can enjoy both! What meat goes well Greek white rice with red quinoa?: This lovely blend on its own is a winner but adding succulent pork fillet cooked with garlic and fragrant rosemary just takes it up a notch. You could easily swap the pork out for beef fillet or even chicken breasts, if you were that way inclined.
