I made this quick Yogurt Parfait earlier this week for breakfast. I had bought a container of "Yoplait Source Parfait Citron Meringue" that tasted so yummy! I scooped in the yogurt, a granola cereal with pumpkin seeds, and fresh raspberries.
They were so simple and quick to make. In less than 5 minutes I had all 4 made and ready to eat. They were delicious!
I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.
It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.
