Sweet Rice Timbales

Love the refreshing taste of sushi rice but prefer whole grain goodness.  Shapely and tasteful timbales are prefect with fish and vegetables.  Recipe and how-to video click here.

 

 

 
 

Vegetable Yaki Soba

A flavorful Asian dish that incorporates dark leafy greens.  Vegetable Yaki Soba is one of my go-to meals when I can't think of anything to make.  Warm, nourishing garlic ginger broth with simmered vegetables ladled over noodles.  Young and old love this one-dish meal.

 

 
 

Chicken Tikka Masala

Let's eat Indian food!  Chicken Tikka Masala.  Tomato cream curry heaven.  Serve it with Golden Spice Rice and Blanched Broccoli for a pleasing meal.  Vegetarians!  We love you.  Recipe includes directions for substituting chickpeas for chicken to make a well-designed vegetarian meal.

 

 
 

Edamame Tofu Salad with Sesame Chile Dressing

Dazzle your family and friends with this deceptively simple platter of beautiful food.  It’s a well-balanced and beautiful meal.  Did you hear the report dissing organic?  Read Sandi’s rebuttal.  And don’t forget to enter our 2nd Annual Haiku Contest and win a free microplane zester.  Interrupt-us and you actually WIN something.  Nice.

Golden Spice Rice

This week on Cookus Interruptus:

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.
