Coconut Rice and Beans with Habanero Sauce
I made this today to have as a side dish for Mango Ginger Tofu from WVaV.. I'm still waiting for my mangos to ripen!
I also made 9 veggie burgers out of Okara, TVP, Oats, Tomato Paste and spices. Lots of onion/garlic and fresh basil. I actually made the mixture yesterday and let it sit all night in the fridge, then grilled them this morning. They are delicious and I only have 3 left because my oldest son ate two for breakfast, then two for lunch! Then I made one for my husband and younger son for lunch. I didn't take pics, because they were eaten up before I could... plus how many pics of veggie burgers can one have on a blog?
Ok, are these flabreads or tortillas? hmmmmm..
I love my Vita-Mix. I took around 2.5 cups of wheatberries and ground it into flour, then added a bit of water, salt, 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and about 1 tsp of baking powdeer. Rolled it into 16 balls and rolled them out... then cooked them in my beloved cast iron skillet.
I like to use these for open faced sandiwches. tostadas, "pizzas" and for quesadillas. The home ground flour is very coarse, but works very well. I had a smallish one that I decided to put to use for lunch. I used homemade refried beans, habanbero sauce, sprouts, tomatoes and topped it with guacamole... Delicious. This pic is of a small plate, and I've found that fresh, whole grain, really fills you up. It's almost 6 and I'm not hungry at all. I love healthy food.
This morning, I had a great smoothie... I didn't take a pic though, it had pineapple, spinach, flax meal, strawberries, blueberries, soymilk, lemon juice, coconut extract and stevia. YUM! The fruit was all frozen and it came out like a thick shake... or sorbet. The blueberries turned it a lovely purple and my kids had no clue they were drinking spinach! Yay for green smoothies. No pic though, we drank them too fast.
