We all love rice and the variety today is amazing. We eat mainly whole grain rice, but enjoy wild rice, red rice and all the new exciting varieties o in the market place.
  Create rice dishes that are a meal in a bowl. They are quick to do and can be warmed up the next day.


 Cook two cups of rice as you normally do.   Slice two onions, three cloves of garlic, two grated carrots, a diced red pepper and yellow pepper.  Sauté these in a pan with a little olive oil. Do this on a medium flame. It takes a few minutes. Add salt, pepper and a level teaspoon of curry powder. Chop two tablespoons of parsley and mint leaves. Add and stir.  Add three  two teaspoons of honey and a few raisins  When this mixture is done, stir into the rice and serve hot with chopped cashew nuts on top.
 Serve with a green salad, lettuce, thinly sliced onions, two finely sliced figs and sprinkle with coconut. Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice, salt and herbs as a dressing


2 cups of cooked rice
Chop the following;2 tablespoons of parsley, a few mint leaves, a chopped clove of garlic, one sliced onion,  two cubed tomatoes, drain one tin of peaches, or fresh ones and cube them. Add a few soaked dried apricots, sliced thinly. Mix all of this with two teaspoons of curry powder, a few teaspoons of chutney and salt and pepper, and a cup of mayonnaise or techina. Mix all and stir in with the rice. Great to serve on a bed of lettuce and sprinkle sliced almonds and sultanas on top

 Cook two cups of rice and serve on a platter with the mushrooms and  onions on top.   Slice three onions and a few chopped cloves of garlic and  sauté in a little olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on this with cut up chives and  green onions. Fry lightly. Add a few varieties of mushrooms that are cut up and sauté. Now add three teaspoons of Soya sauce and a few pine  kernels.  Fry a little and  serve on the rice..   This is delicious.

Love and light for a great week   Rona
