Dinner, At Least, Was Healthy

Friday, June 10, 2011

I made brown rice in the rice cooker, then made black beans onthe stove.

In a large skillet, I sauteed some chopped onion, some fresh corn, 1/2 jalapeno, some yellow squash, and orange pepper in some olive oil.

I tossed in some of the black beans (with the veggies) plus some cumin, salt and pepper.
Then, in a bowl, layered some brown rice, some veggies/beans, then some salsa, avocado chunks, and ricotta cheese.

DI-VINE. Fab. Yumster.

Next time I'll add some greens (cilantro, spinach, whatever).

YAY veggies!

Oh, then I had a gin and tonic with raspberries added. (Truth in advertising compels me to mention it)

    Sounds fab-I'm always on the lookout for good meatless meals-I'm going to have to give this a whirl.

    I put raspberries in with the ice in the glass, then add the G&T. It's lovely.

    I like my rice cooker mostly because I tend to forget things and burn them, and our rice cooker turns itself off. We keep it in the cabinet (not on the counter) most of the time, but I probably use it at least once a week, maybe more. I also use it to cook lentils, wheatberries, and barley.

    Do you like your rice cooker? I am going between it being a good idea and a counter hog.....I love me some kitchen gadgets though :)

    Good job on the veggies!
