Here’s another quick recipe my family adores that can be made quickly and served in those acorn squash boats or alone.
Mix together in a 3 to 5 quart pot or a rice cooker:
1 cup white rice
1 15 or 16 oz can kidney beans, drained
1 apple chopped (don’t use red delicious; use golden delicious or other)
2 tsp vegetarian bouillon (or omit water and use 2 1/4 cups vegetarian broth)
1 tsp salt (if bouillon does not have salt; otherwise omit salt)
1 Tbsp curry powder, mild
1 Tbsp. coconut
2 1/4 cups water
Cook, covered, until water is gone and rice is done.
Notes: This is great served in the acorn squash boats. The sweet flavors really compliment each other.
Or stuff this mixture into pitas.
I think a rice cooker is a great investment. You can find ones that sell for under $15, and they can be used for oatmeal, rice mixes, steaming vegetables, and a host of other things. And, your rice will never again boil over!
