Another recipe from what may become my favorite cookbook.
As with the Turkish Leek Patties, I'll show you the recipe and then tell how I modified it for two people.
Afghan Risotto - Shola
I diced a couple carrots, and cooked them until soft.
Then I sautéed a chopped onion in 4 teaspoons olive oil with
the carrots, and a chopped tomato.
In the meantime I cooked a cup (makes about 2 cups cooked) of short grain brown rice
with 1/4 teaspoon each of tumeric and cumin.
I drained the rice,
put it in a bowl, topped it with the vegetables, some chopped chives and parsley, and the juice of one lemon.
We both loved this dish, and I'll make it often. Delicious, easy, and healthy. What could be better?!
