MAKE QUINUA & OATS QUICK IN INSTANT POT| SUBSTITUTE FOR RICE Food & Recipes

Inspired with “zakkokumai” in Japanese cooking.

Zakkoku (雑穀) means grains includes seeds, and Zakkoku-mai (雑穀米) refers to cooked rice mixed several grains.

Zakkoku-mai is popular as a healthy source since it is not only nutritious but also easy to make while just adding grains into a white rice.

Grains are rich in nutrients included dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins, and while low in calories, they can also be expected to have health benefits.

Mixing grains into white rice reduces the amount of carbohydrates, making it perfect for people who are concerned about sugar content or are on a diet.

Quinoa and old-fashioned oats are often mixed in Zakkokumai.

I want to cut white rice for reduce carbs.

I finally found the gold ratio of water to grains.

This recipe is not for making regular breakfast oatmeal. My grains can be used as a side dish in place of rice.
It's fluffy, sticky, and healthy.
Just eat as cooked rice with meals such as onigiri rice balls, fried rice, sushi rice, curry and rice, and omuletsu rice.

JAPANESE WELLNESS: HOW TO BOOST MY MENTAL WELL-BEING IN TRADITIONAL JAPANESE CUISINE

The traditional Japanese cuisine called “WASHOKU” provides as well-balanced and nutritious food that we (the Japanese) eat every day. 

WASHOKU traditionally consists-a bowl of soup, a main dish (protein), vegetable side dishes, japanese pickles, and a bowl of rice.

You’ll find a variety of foods to boost your mental well-being and often tell you these foods- soy products, fish, vegetables, liver, dairy products, and fermented foods bring nutrition to the brain and guts. (READ THIS POST!)
