Lemongrass Rice (among other things)Posted: August 10, 2010
In continuation of our “what to eat” series, dinner tonight was lemongrass rice with spiced lentils and onions paired with some pita and sour-cream with lemon and basil sauce and a wilted Chinese spinach and tomato salad.
We have some lemongrass growing in the garden, so I simply washed it, tied it in a knot and added it to the brown rice in the rice cooker. For the “sauce”, I whisked together some sour-cream, lemon juice and minced basil (also from the garden) and let it chill in the fridge. I cooked one minced onion with a bit of olive oil and broth until wilted and then added the lentils and a lot of veggie broth until they were cooked.
For the spinach and tomato salad, I washed and chopped the spinach and microwaved it for a minute. Drained it and added chopped tomatoes, salt and lemon juice with a tiny bit of truffle oil. Voila, awesome dinner.
