RICE, my way

1-3/4 cups organic brown rice, sorted and washed 3 times
1/4 cup organic white quinoa
1 TBS Tamari
3 cups spring water, boiling

Place rice and quinoa in an 8x8 or 9x5 glass dish. Add boiling water and tamari. Cover tightly with foil and place in a 375 degrees pre-heated oven for one hour.

Remove from oven and let set for several minutes. Then uncover and stir. Enjoy with all kinds of good stuff.

Everybody has their own recipe....

CORN MEAL CEREAL

1 cup cornmeal
1/4 tsp. sea salt
3-4 cups boiling water
1/8 tsp oil

Sauté cornmeal in oil. Add salt and boiling water. Cook 30-35 minutes or until well done. Add Tamari Soy Sauce to taste.


I tried this and found it was more like soup than cereal. You have to add the water slowly, stirring constantly to keep it from lumping. I found it quite good but I do like corn.

I love millet when it's first cooked, soft like mashed potatoes. The leftovers I use as croquettes but it sets when it gets cold. So I tried something different. While it was still warm I poured it into a small glass loaf pan. I had cooked it with garlic granules and onion powder, plus a little oregano. When it cooled I stashed it in the fridge.

Well, it was perfect to slice, then heat and brown the slices. The sauces I added made it too yang, but think of the possibilities. You can add veggies and make a 'meatloaf.' Something to experiment with.

The first slices I cut revealed some water standing in the bottom of the pan. I just tipped it and poured the water out which made it drier, and I just realized, more Yang. Still something to consider.

I just realized that this is almost exactly how we cook our rice - really, just substitute sesame oil for the tamari and this is it. Perfect everytime.

We'll have to try this, though...
