I just made two dishes for our New Years Dinner - I will call them Peachy Keen Salad and a YB-Rice. Every year we celebrate by having a holiday dinner where we remember and remeniss of the current year. The good, the bad, and just everyday non-eventful normal stuff :)
All ingredients are organic for extra goodness.
To make the YB-Rice you need some Rice, Vegetables, Dried Fruit, Nuts/Seeds, Seasoning, Liquid
3 cups brown rice
1 cup wild rice
1 tbsp garlic powder
1tbsp fiesta mole seasoning (tomato based seasoning)
1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
2 tbsp dried chives
1/2 cup Raisins
1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cup Walnuts small chunks
1/4 cup sliced Brazil nuts
1/8 cup ground flax seeds
Combine and rinse the rice, place in a big pot with a few sprays of oil, and spices. I added the garlic and mole, reserving the yeast and the chives for last step. Turn the pot on and bring about 5 cups of water to a boil in a kettle and pour it over the rice. Cover and cook on high heat for 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium and cook for another 20 min, then cook 5 min on low and turn off the heat and let stand covered for 15 min.
At this point the rice is done, add the vegetables, with the nuts/seeds and the yeast (if using) and dried fruit and mix it up well and cover.

Mix the salad ingredients, add the fruit on top. Blend the dressing in high power blender. Enjoy!
