I have come up with a great idea to making dinners faster during the week. Of course, I’m not the first person to think of this but it was the first time I had done it and boy does it cut down on your dinner prep time. What I did was prep the grains and the beans needed for this recipe (and some extra to freeze for later use) the night before.
I cooked the wild rice & quinoa, some for the recipe and some extra for later use, then placed it in the freezer until it was needed. I also simmered the dried beans for an hour until they were softened and did the same thing, placing them in the freezer until I needed them. I’m sure putting them in the refrigerator would work just as well! Then, all I had to do for this dinner was throw it all together and bake for 10 minutes! Perfect!
