Wild Rice and Romaine Boats

Wild Rice mix, romaine boats with guacamole. It doesn't get much easier or tastier than this - well, it does, and can, but for this particular moment I felt like it was pretty high on the list of easy and tasty meals, but that was just me. at that moment. for a minute or two.

For the guacamole, mash up 1 entire avocado the day prior for hubby and I and some lentil burgers. With the avocado I added a spoonful of his salsa (30 serrano chilis, 3 roma tomatoes, 1/2 tsp salt and 2 tbsp water), and the juice of one medium-sized lemon. It kept in the fridge overnight because of the magic trick that is: leave the avocado's pit in the middle of the guacamole, and store in a glass dish with a lid (glass + plastic wrap also would do). The guac had only turned slightly brown and tasted super fresh. I' m a fan of instant guac, are you? Spread about half an avocado's worth of this delightfulness over romaine leaves.

For the wild rice, try to get your hands on TruRoots brand of sprouted grains. It includes quinoa, wild rice and brown rice and is easy to cook. Follow the package's cook time direction and set aside. Alternatively, you could simply cook some brown rice, quinoa, or wild rice for this dish. Shoot, you could use barley, wheat berries, couscous, ice cream... pick your grain! Next, I water sauteed 1 entire bell pepper, cut into strips, 1 cup or so of roughly shredded red cabbage, 2 celery stalks, cut thinly into pieces, a diced serrano chili or two, and some green onion. Into the saute pan went italian seasoning, paprika, pepper and oregano (all dried, about 1/2 tsp of each I s'pose, I just shake the little jars over the vegetables until evenly coated).

Wonderful. Eat at rapid speeds! Or, you know, have some self control, prevent gas and bloating and heart burn, and consume slowly, chewing each mouthful peacefully with your eyes closed and your mind focused on the flavors.

Psalms 86:5 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy to all them that call on You.
