SO GOOD :)
I'm incorporating a lot more raw foods into my life again, and cutting out the less-than-stellar obvious and usual suspects that crept back in. I'm feeling better already, and it's only been a few days. Seriously, just a few days of cutting out crap and eating more produce = mind shift.
Last night, I made Dr. Dean Ornish's 'Dirty Rice' recipe. It's cooked, and it's a delicious transition food if you're in the same place as I am... wanting to cut out the crap but not ready to go full-on raw yet, if ever. (My goal is 75% raw for now.) Anyway, Dirty Rice.
Place a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add the first 9 ingredients (after the rice) and heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring almost constantly, until lightly browned.
In another pot, bring the stock and bay leaf to a boil and add to the veg mixture. Cover the pan, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
ADD the beans, tomatoes, corn and salt. Stir, cover and simmer for 15 more minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley.
Was it good? Well ... since it made 6-8 servings and there are 4 of us, I had hoped to see have some more for next day's lunch. HA! Midnight gremlins were at it again.
