Curry Rice with Cabbage

I have modified a traditional Greek “cabbage rice” dish by adding curry and making it more delicious. This is a great way to get kids to eat cooked cabbage.

Bibimbab (Korean Rice and Vegetables)

Bibimbab (or bi bim bap) is a collection of several tasty foods arranged on top of a bowl of rice. Traditionally, beef would be one of the toppings and a fried egg would be placed over the rice. In this vegan version, I’ve replaced the beef with baked tofu and eliminated the egg. Also, I’ve reduced the oil and sodium in the toppings and tried to simplify what can be a complex dish to put together.

Bryanna’s Pilaf

Pilaf is a Middle Eastern term for a flavored rice mixture. If you prefer, you can use all bulgur wheat (and use 4 c. broth), or all rice (and use 3 c. broth), instead of a mixture.

    • Oil-Free Waffle Iron Hash Browns
      For years, my daughter’s favorite after-school snack was Ore-Ida hash brown potato patties. They were made of shredded potatoes with no oil added, and it was a tight squeeze, but two of them fit in our little Foreman grill (they often came out fused together in one mega-patty). They were a healthy treat for a […]

      I had a very difficult week. At a visit to the dentist I thought was a conscientious inquiry about a sensitive tooth, I discovered I need much more extensive work than I would ever have dreamed. I won’t be discussing the gory details here or in the comments, but suffice it to say that I’ve […]
