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.

Colorful, kid-friendly comfort food

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots in Cheddar Cheese Sauce

 (Chip off the old block)

Blanch these nutritious vegetables (or any others you like) and serve them in a simple cheese sauce with Caribbean Lime Halibut or French Lentils with Sage Butter.  So easy that Jane can do it.
