Rice & Spice, New Vegetarian Cooking (x2)
I didn't get home until almost 7:00 today, so time was short and I was super hungry. You can tell I took the pictures on top of the washer. ;) I like how the peach blueberry one I chose turned out; it looks like you can reach out and touch the fruit or sneak in a slurp of whipped cream.
The Rice & Spice dish is a repeat, the Thai Fried Rice, only this time I used broccoli as the vegetable, with great results, just as last time. I also added tofu because I think it adds a good texture.
The Thai Bean Cakes are made from cannellini beans, red curry paste, cilantro, green onion, and chickpea flour, served with lime wedges and a roasted red pepper garnish. I liked these cakes. They were pretty easy (the food processor did the work!) and a bit spicy, mellowed by the lime juice.
As for the peach-blueberry dish, how's this for easy: 2 c. blueberries, 4 T. apple juice concentrate, 4 sliced peaches, simmered for 5-10 min.? So good, too! I had been waiting for some organic peaches; these did not disappoint.
Unfortunately, I ate so late that there's no room for exercise tonight before bed. I've been trying to take a day off here and there every 12 days or so anyway. I guess today is best for that.gluten-free
