Karl’s Mexican Brown Rice II

Technique drawn from Mel’s Kitchen Café

I am making Jan’s birthday dinner of chicken mole and drunken beans. We are having company so I decided to add a rice dish. Jan is pushing me to use more “low glycemic” starches in my diet so I made it with brown rice.

Karl’s Mexican Brown Rice

Technique drawn from Mel’s Kitchen Café

Jan is pushing me to use more “low glycemic” starches in my diet. I wanted beans and rice to go with my chili verde. To please her, I am using brown rice, instead of my usual white rice.

Karl’s Annatto Barbecued Zucchini

I am doing a fusion Mexican theme this Labor Day. Spices from South of the (U,S,) Border, but in ways that are probably non-traditional. Jan and the kids have been pushing me to make more vegetarian dishes. I decided to make a second vegetable dish to go with my cauliflower. I had used an annatto sauce to make a bright red cauliflower. I am using the same sauce on zucchinis before I barbecue them.

As I was looking around I saw that someone had used annatto to make a bright red cauliflower. That gave me ideas.
