Ok, now I'm confused. THIS one is an omni thread, or another one that you post on? :
I was confused! So sorry!
oh oh oh! can i request the stuffed bell pepper recipe?
sorry this took so long to get to you!
Deep South Brown Rice and Beans
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 can drained and rinsed kidney beans
1 green bell pepper, deseeded and chopped
1 red bell pepper, deseeded and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 small tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
1 tsp basil (can use fresh but i never have. add 1 to 2 tbs of fresh)
1 tsp thyme (ditto to the fresh)
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper or just to taste. (i think my cayenne is really strong because more than 1/8 tsp KILLS us!)
2 tsp salt
4 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or another oil)
optional- 1 deseeded and finely chopped jalapeño for an extra kick
**put the rice on to cook while you get the beans and veggies ready.
heat up the 4 tbs oil with the 2 tsp salt, add the onion and bell pepper with the herbs. cook until al dente then stir in the beans and tomatoes. cook for another 2 or 3 minutes before stirring in the rice. cook until fully mixed together and heated throughly.
i find this needs extra salt and tastes yummy with steamed caluliflower or yellow squash. we had it with corn bread the other day and it was great.
wildtigercubs - Does it use nutritional yeast?
Tonight we're having...
pumpkin seed-encrusted lentil patties
& chipotle baked yams
...both from Vive le Vegan! by Dreena Burton.
The yams are done, and now I'm just waiting for the patty mix to firm up in the fridge before cooking.
