No longer hate brown rice

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

I have a confession to make. I had a disdain for brown rice, wheat pasta or any other food that is too chewy. My motto for "lifetime" healthy living is that for me to eat it it has to taste good. So I was experimenting in my kitchen with brown rice. I made it a couple days ago. Is tumbled on a Spark recipe that I enhanced with my own creativity.
Here goes:
Put 1 TBSP canola or sesame oil in wok
Add diced onion fresh diced ginger(1 tsp or to taste)
Add carrots cut up
Add diced zucchini
Minced garlic
Sauté until onions soften and carrots soften
Add cooked chicken( I used a roasted chicken breast cut up well seasoned)
Add brown rice and 1-2 TBSP soy sauce mix together
Voila revived brown rice.

I now have to be careful not to eat too much,

Now it's on to finding recipes for wheat past have an awesome afternoon!

    One thing I've learned about brown rice is you have to have something with it :).

    Cook it using chicken or beef broth instead of water. Coconut milk or water instead of water. Makes a world of difference! Otherwise it taste like paper. As for pasta I only use it in recipes I normal use regular pasta. Probably boiling it in one of the above may work as well.

    I don't like brown rice too much either. Your recipe sounds pretty tempting to try, or maybe I should do some experimenting myself. Atleast you did not give up on that old brown rice. emoticon
