Golden Spice Rice

This week on Cookus Interruptus:

Golden Spice Rice

(No blame, no gain)


Sautéing the rice before cooking it results in a more separate finished grain.  By adding a few simple spices you add fragrance to the rice and add a lovely golden color.  Serve this with Vegetable Chickpea Curry, Black Bean Stew, Fried Tofu and Coconut Peanut Sauce, French Lentils with Sage Butter or Thai Yellow Curry.  Very versatile whole grain dish. Want to do something fun and easy with rhubarb, make Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce and serve it on Ben’s Friday Pancakes.  Food and recipes sprouting up everywhere on Cookus Interruptus where we await whatever comments you might spring on us.

Braised Greens

Braising is a tasty way to cook fresh, local seasonal dark leafy greens.  Every time I cut some kale from my backyard, I am thankful that I live in a house that has a yard big enough to grow a few greens and a climate that sustains them all winter. Yum.

Our web cooking show, Cookus Interruptus has a how to video on braising greens.  Have a look.
