Quinori is a blend of red quinoa, whole long grain rice, chickpeas, white quinoa, and sesame seeds. A superb cocktail of vitamins, minerals, fibers, carbohydrates, protein—and it’s gluten–free. A meat or fish is not necessary, as this dish is plenty nourishing, but a cheese with fruit to bring this menu full circle is perfectly complementary.

We’ve sampled this Alain Ducasse dish at his restaurant Spoon in Paris, and can vouch for the nourishing punch it packs. It’s also a testament to Ducasse’s commitment to spotlighting grains and vegetables.
