Imperfectly Raw Day 24, Saturday, 9/11/21

 Imperfectly Raw Day 24, Saturday, 9/11/21

I guess I was tired today because I slept until 8:30!  

I made Indian Fried Rice for dinner.

Breakfast:  Coffee and a juice made with 4 apples, 1 lemon, 1 cucumber, 4 stalks celery, and 2" ginger.

Lunch:  Smoothies made with frozen bananas, 4 mangos, 2 big handfuls of spinach, and water.  And a Lara Bar.

Dinner:  Salad using a bagged salad mix with chopped onion and cherry tomatoes.  I used the leftover Orange Pepper Dressing. Multigrain chips. Indian Fried Rice.

Recipe for Indian Fried Rice for 2:

1/2 yellow onion, 1/2 yellow bell pepper, 1 can green beans, 2 tbsp. chopped cilantro, 1 package of boil in the bag brown rice prepared, 2 tbsp. olive oil, 2 tsp minced garlic, 1/4 cup peanuts, 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp ground turmeric, 1/2 tsp ground coriander, 1/2 lime.

Thinly slice onion and bell pepper.  Chop cilantro and set aside.

Cook rice according to directions on the package.

In a large skillet over medium heat,  add 1 tbsp. or more olive oil.  Add garlic, onion, bell pepper, and green beans.  Stir and cook about 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Transfer to a bowl.

Add another tbsp. of olive oil to the skillet.  Add peanuts and cook a couple of minutes.  Add cumin seeds and red pepper flakes.  Add rice and stir.  Add turmeric, ground coriander, and a pinch of salt.  Add the vegetables back in and cook another minute.

Remove from heat and season with salt and a squeeze of lime.  Top with cilantro.
