Simple, tasty, and off the beaten track from regular rice bowls. Assembly takes moments and everything can be prepared in advance and frozen. Easily prepped, frozen, and microwaveable with the exception of the bananas and garnish. Also, can be arranged without the chicken for a nice vegetarian meal. Great dish for Chinese takeout leftover rice!
This is a great one dish, pan-asian meal and makes for a healthy, well-balanced lunch or dinner. The combination of the spicy, rich tofu and the fresh cool greens really makes the dish pop. Adapted from Vegetarian Times.
Every year my new years' resolution is to like a new food (my somewhat successful attempt at becoming a less picky eater). This year was winter squash, and let me tell you, this recipe made it super easy!
*Make sure you use very flavorful broth, a weak broth will make a weak risotto.
This is a recipe I have made for ages...I got it out of a recipe book from the old Hudsons Department Store Recipe Book called "With Warmest Regards". A wonderful recipe to serve a lot of people for a special occasion.
A delicious side dish for just about any kind of meat. Originally from a Junior League of El Paso cookbook. I've been making this for over 20 years and everyone has always enjoyed it! It can be assembled earlier in the day and baked later.
Another recipe from my Land-O-Lake recipe book. This is a slightly sweet, warm bacon dressing tossed with spinach, wild rice and crispy radishes.
I made this a few years back at a BBQ event, and it went well.
"Jazz up plain old rice with the flavors of Greece. This main-dish casserole gets powerful antioxidents from the spinach and plenty of fiber from the brown rice." - From the Prevention Magazine book, "Natural Healing Guide 2002"
I decided to pair not my ordinary pizza toppings for this polenta pizza appetizer, something a bit fancier than your average sausage crumbles. I simply enjoy the saltiness of anchovies and cheese when paired with the complexity of olives and rosemary. I hope you enjoy.
When I was younger, I didn’t like broccoli, but I sure loved this casserole! I requested “green rice” all the time. Maybe it was because of all the cheese :) This is a good way to get veggies, whole grains, and calcium into picky kids’ mouths! Can either be a vegetarian main dish or a side dish.
