What are some examples of rice alternatives?

Some people may have a slight or severe allergy to the proteins in rice. Some possible alternatives that can be found in American grocery stores include: quinoa, amaranth, barley or millet. Also, orzo pasta can be used as a readily-available rice substitute. All of these alternatives are not "low carb" options. If you are looking for a low-carb alternative, try lentels, beans or steamed vegetables.
