This dish came about as I was trying to use up the last of the ingredients that I had purchased while staying in the condo–dates, chick peas, carrots, onion and brown rice. The inspiration came from Lindsay’s recipe in Everyday Happy Herbivore called “Curried Rice,” but I took it to a whole new level and again, everyone who tried it loved it. This unusual rice dish would be great served with a big salad to complete a meal.
I also want to share with you some big news. My thoughts on what to think about when you want to eat something were featured in an article in Cleveland’s Plain Dealer. It was a big surprise to me, so thank you to PD writer Evelyn Theiss for mentioning this important idea. You can check that out here if you’ve got a moment. My quotes are at the end of the article.
And in other big news, I used my pressure cooker to make something other than beans for dinner tonight! I made this soup recipe from Lani Muelrath. I altered the seasoning a lot for my palate (I like things highly seasoned). I’m slowly working into a more comfortable relationship with the appliance and I’m going to start making recipes from Lorna J. Sass’ Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure and see how it goes. Wish me luck.
A votre sante!
