Fried Rice

January 13, 2011

Recently I’ve added Fried Rice into our supper rotation. It is absolutely delicious. I don’t know why I didn’t try this years ago. It’s so easy and flavorful with a fantastic texture. Start with cold rice (leftovers from the night before). Saute a cup of mixed frozen veg (thawed in the fridge) and garlic in a Tbl of Veg or Canola oil for a few minutes. Add the rice and a generous¬†drizzle of soy sauce and a splash of rice wine vinegar. I also add a teeny tiny bit of spicy chili sauce (totally optional). Start with a little bit of soy sauce and add more to taste. I pair it with natural baked veg spring rolls. I also steam broccoli and throw it on top because we LOVE broccoli! This is just SO good and easy.

Stay safe and warm in this winter weather.

Aloo Gobhi

June 1, 2010

I have to admit that after the last time I tried to cook Indian cuisine, I was a little discouraged. It did not turn out well. I hadn’t planned on trying again until I saw a recipe for my favorite Aloo Gobhi in The Vegan Table. I had to try it.

Cauliflower and potatoes cooking with spices.

Simmer.

Aloo Gobhi served over Basmati rice.

Well it was nowhere near as good as the dish I get at my favorite Indian place but it was a step closer. The tomato was too overwhelming for me. I’m not sure if it was the recipe or me. Hopefully I will just get better the more I practice.

I just started reading “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer. I have wanted to read this since it was released. So far….I love it.

Have a good week!
