I’ll be honest here. I’d like to switch my blog around but I’m having trouble figuring out how to exactly do it so I’ve been procrastinating on creating new posts. This minor frustration has left me uninspired to write much around the meals I’ve been cooking. Ideally I’d like to know people with certain talents to help my cause out; a mechanic, hairstylists, doctor, and now a computer tech. People who are trustworthy, reliable, and a good resource. So bare with me while I get my act together. If you noticed I deleted all the tags and categories. This was the first step I took to motivate me to make the changes I wanted. Of course after doing this I hit a wall so maybe that wasn’t the best idea. Hopefully in the near future I’ll have things sorted and a new look.
I wasn’t overly inspired when I went to make this meal. My thoughts weren’t cohesive with what I was trying to accomplish. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised with how well it turned out. I intended to use tofu too but when I opened the package it was no good. Probably for the best as it really wasn’t needed. I steamed a massive golden beet and boiled some frozen lima beans. Other than that I used Lundberg Black Japonica rice blend and Haystack Mountain Chevre en Marinade. The rice is a blend of black and mahogany grains. The goat cheese is marinated with herbs de provence in olive oil. I served the rice salad with fresh avocado and yellow pear tomatoes. Definitely a winner.
Golden Beet and Rice Salad
- golden beets
- black japonica rice blend, or use brown rice
- frozen lima beans
- goat cheese
- avocado, chopped
- yellow pear tomatoes, chopped
- Cook rice according to package.
- Peel and chop the beet into small pieces. Steam until tender.
- Meanwhile cook boil lima beans in water until cooked.
- Mix rice, beets, and lima beans together. Season with s&p. Crumble goat cheese and fold into rice salad. Add in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil the goat cheese was marinated in. If you can’t find a marinated goat cheese add in your own seasonings and plain olive oil.
