Red Rice

One of my favorite things to eat is a simple dish Daniella taught me to make. She calls it "red rice". It is easy and delicious, so watch out! You, too, might get hooked. Here's how simple it is.

Short grain Brown rice
Olive Oil
Tamari (soy sauce)
Cayenne Pepper

Cook some brown rice, however much you like to have around. You can keep it in the fridge, tightly covered, for quite a while. When you want to eat a bowl of it, warm up a serving or two. Toss the warm rice with some extra virgin olive oil (be generous), some tamari (to taste), some cayenne pepper (the "red" part) to taste (be cautious), and then some cut up avocado (be generous). Voila! It's ready to eat. You may need a little salt, depending on how much tamari you used. This is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

mmm. so great. I think it's best with a toasted tortilla or two...sometimes tofu for added protein.

That sounds absolutely delicious. I am going to have to make some. Yum. I can imagine variations-- like adding fresh chopped tomato.

The dish sounds delicious! However, my eye caught a mosaic in the background- did you make that?

Creative Wishes!

Yes, those are my mosaic walls. They go around the whole kitchen, just above the counter top. Pretty cheery, no??

cooked brown rice is such a good standby to have on hand in the fridge. have toyed, often, with the idea of posting a recipe but thus far have shrunk back. hmmm....maybe i'll review that....
