Since I have been sick and dealing with a sinus infection I have been eating certain foods. The best thing I was able to eat was this wild rice and veggie soup I created. Here is the recipe:
1 bag of mixed frozen organic veggies
2 cups of veggie stock
2 cups of water
3 garlic cloves
1 small onion chopped
1 cup dry mixed brown and wild black rice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
pinch of oregano
pinch of parsley
pinch of herbs de providence
pinch of kosher salt
pinch of black pepper
-In a small pot, put chopped onion & chopped garlic cloves in with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
-Sautee about 3 minutes
-Add the vegetable stock & water
-Add the frozen veggies, cook on med-low
-While you are cooking the veggies and stock, cook the rice in a rice cooker
-When the rice is done cooking add the rice and spices
-Bring to a boil for a minute or two
-Enjoy with some hot sauce or just plain!
