This recipe was passed onto me by a vegetarian friend and co-worker. She is moving back to Canada in a few days and passed on this recipe.....and I'm spreading the wealth! Her mom in Canada makes this as a side dish for each Canadian holiday but my friend and her husband enjoy it so much that they make it any day of the year. It's healthy and very simple. If you are not a vegetarian, you can add some cooked chicken breast to the dish.
Quick and simple way to add some extra flavor to plain old white rice. This was something I threw together to go with some fajitas I had made. I usually make this rice in my rice cooker, but it works on the stove top as well. I've used regular long grain rice, or parboiled, both work fine.
This "recipe" comes from a 40 year old cook book I inherited when I met Russell! "Entertaining with Kerr". He was a pompus TV cook in Australia, and this is the only thing I've ever cooked out of the book. It's also the ONLY way I enjoy my rice (and we eat a lot of that!)
From Company's Coming Slow Cooker Recipes. I love to make this when my kids have skating lessons. I can throw it into the crockpot after school and when lessons are over, dinner is waiting. If you are lucky enough to have two crock pots, you can have a glazed ham going in the other one and your dinner is ready to go!
