102. sushi bowl.

Tonight I made a variation of this recipe. You can do alot with it. Leave stuff out, add stuff in…thats what I did! Unfortuantely there is no photo because I’m having problems with this particular memory card and I KNOW IT, yet i keep using it. UGH.

Here’s my adaptation.

Cook some brown rice.
Let it sit and cool to room temperature.
Add diced cucumber, cooked edemame, cooked tofu cubes, 2 sliced green onions, chopped avocado, and about 2-3 Tbsps seasame seeds.

Mix together 2 Tbspn rice vinegar, 1 Tbspn soy sauce, and half a tspn of minced ginger.

Combine everything and enjoy.

Its a refreshing brown rice dish that tastes alot like sushi!

74. pantry bbq sauce.

Since it turned to spring overnight, I’ve had limited time for cooking/crafting….Milo and I made a pitstop at the park on the way home today, so we got home a little later than usual. Doesn’t mean I can’t make a home cooked meal!

I’ve been in the habit of making some brown rice over the weekend and freezing it for the week, so have it in a crunch. I sauteed some seitan, brocolli and spinach and then made Isa’s Pantry BBQ sauce to throw on top. Since the rice was already cooked, this dinner took about 15-20 minutes to throw together!

Here’s the recipe for the sauce:
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce (this gives it some kick, so leave it out if you are a light weight)

Mix it all together in a bowl. Right before you are finished cooking your dinner, toss it in the pan, and let it cook for a few minutes.
