Not your average Chicken & Rice!

Another great recipe from FatFree Vegan Kitchen, this Turkish Pilaf did not disappoint! Instead of cooking my own rice, I took a shortcut with a brown and wild rice pouch. I also took Susan's suggestion and made it ahead of time. My parents and I went back for seconds!



To go with this, I served up Crispy Panko Mustard Chicken, and somehow forgot to take a picture--oops! I doubled the mustard and used a combo of regular yellow mustard and whole grain dijon. Quick, easy, and tasty!! Although next time I'd probably cut back on the butter... but that's just me :) While the two dishes don't necessarily go "together," I was going for speed and we all enjoyed the party of flavors!


More contests!! Chances to win Mix My Granola at Soap & Chocolate and Missy Maintains. Remember how I joked about looking for a YouBar giveaway? My prayers were answered at Run to the Finish :) And don't forget about Jenn's giveaway for her 1st Blogiversary.

That looks SO GOOD! I'm doing Meatless in March, but maybe I could try your same idea with tofu???

Abbie- My guess is that the panko chix recipe would work well for tofu, too! Maybe bake it for a bit, flip, then spread with mustard mix, top w/panko, and bake until nice and toasty! :)

Hey!

I see that you enjoy cooking healthy with fresh, whole foods. Stonyfield Farm makes a Greek style yogurt called Oikos Organic that is great for cooking with! It's triple stained which makes it extra thick and versatile, and it's the only ORGANIC Greek yogurt on the market today. I'd love to send you free coupons to give Stonyfield Oikos Organic a try. If you're interested just shoot me an email at Kdrociak@stonyfield.com and let me know where to send them.

Take care!

I love a good rice dish. I have the smell of ginger (a sauce is reducing) cooking on stove and I want this rice so bad to serve with dinner.
