Is This What They Call a Pilaf? (Aka Tuesday’s Kitchen Adventure!)

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…

Jerk Nuggets and Rice and Peas

Another lunch idea I took to work… I used brown rice and kidney beans and cooked them in coconut milk with herbs and spices (tumeric, garlic powder, onion, salt, a bit of sugar).  For the nuggets, I dipped the Gardein crispy tenders in Grace’s BBQ Jerk Sauce and then baked them.  Yummers!
