Aztec rice is a combination of amaranth (a super grain containing seven of the eight essential amino acids), Colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, plus yellow and green split peas. There is plenty of protein from the split peas, so this could also be eaten as a vegan dish on it’s own (I used the left over portions for lunches this way).
