Holiday Dinner Recipes

Posted Jan 01 2010 12:00am

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

Rice
3 cups brown rice
1 cup wild rice

Vegetables
Broccoli
Green Peas

Spices
1 tbsp garlic powder
1tbsp fiesta mole seasoning (tomato based seasoning)
1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
2 tbsp dried chives

Dried Fruit
1/2 cup Raisins
1/2 cup cranberries

Nuts/Seeds
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.
