I didn’t want just plain old white rice for supper tonight, I need to give it some pizzazz; right? Off to the pantry (sounds fancy doesn’t it? … it’s not, I have shelves in the staircase to my basement). Hmm… what do I have to add? I knew my veggies were running low in the fridge, so I skipped looking there, my delivery is coming this Friday from South Shore Organics. I saw a can of artichoke hearts; that could be interesting. I then went to the refrigerator, anything else to add? Oh, organic goat cheese with herbs; yes! I actually browned the artichoke hearts (after chopping them) under the broiler to give them some dimension & crunch, I put approximately 2 Tbsp. of the goat cheese into my 3 cups of cooked rice. It was different & delicious. Here is a not so great picture of the result:
It tasted better than it looks in this picture, you’ll have to trust me on this one. My point is, don’t let your rice be boring; throw in whatever you’re in the mood for! The hubby & 1 son were impressed, the other son ate around the artichokes…. you can’t win every time. Cook, eat, enjoy!
