Saucy Garbanzos and Rice

Oh, man, we had the best supper tonight! I got ahold of some sumac earlier, and decided it would be good in some sauce, and oooohhh boy was I right! I can't wait to use this in mac 'n cheeze!!

Saucy Garbanzos and Rice

1 C rice, uncooked

1 can garbanzos, drained

1-2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T Earth Balance

1/4 C nutritional yeast
1 C plain soymilk
2 T flour
1 t sumac
1/4 t turmeric
1/4 t salt
dash pepper

Cook your rice.

Saute garlic in Earth Balance, remove from heat. Meanwhile, whizz together the rest of the sauce ingredients (in blender or just shake up in a jar/tupperware/lidded whatever) and add to garlic and butter. Cook on high, whisking constantly, until thick, remove from heat, dump in garbanzos and cover. Serve over rice. Channel the voice of Homer when he sees a donut (ahglaglahhhh).

We also got our CSA veggies- pics of those tomorrow... but we used the arugula to make a yummy salad! Here's the dressing I used for a large bowlful of arugula;

Easy dressing

2 T water
1 T olive oil
1 t maple syrup
1 t red cooking wine
1/4 t Dijon mustard
1 tiny clove garlic, minced

Whizz in blender, et voila! The sweetness was just the right thing to have with the fresh bite of the arugula!

Finished the book, some parts were good, especially the emotional parts, but some of the technical details of how to bring the story along were awkward. There, I said it. Next up, some Edith Wharton. Woo.

I got yarn today!!!!! And it's pretty cool yarn, too! She found it at goodwill for pete's sake! Stashed away. Otherwise, no knitting. It's hot!
