I’ve never made a pilaf before, but if I did, I think this is what it would/should look like:
This was a spur of the moment recipe. My nutritionist says I need more protein in my diet, especially since I’ve started weight/strength training. Well, here you go. 🙂
I cooked some quinoa in vegetable stock and added some green beans and carrots. But then, while cooking, I saw that I had added too much stock. Dad had cooked and left me some rice and peas (“kidney beans”), so I just threw that in the pot in the hopes that the rice would absorb the excess stock. Then I added some tamari sauce (San-J). I baked Chipotle Lime Crispy Fingers from Gardein to complete the meal and “up” its protein content.
