I have a cold. A good, old fashioned cold.
Everyone else seems to have some sniffles and coughing. I was laid out for two days wondering if it was the flu.
So, besides saturation levels of Vitamin C, I have also had to feed the family actual FOOD. And when you feel like crap, you feel like cutting corners. Thus, today's recipe. I give to you -
Cook 3 cups dry brown rice according to package directions, if you can see through your watery eyes post-sneezing (which makes this bad boy gluten free - the rice, not the sneezing)
Then, in a blender/Vitamix/food processor, throw in the following:
All the leaves off a bunch of fresh parsley
A bunch of fresh mint
One onion, quartered (or more, depending on how well your appliance pulverizes)
2 pints cherry tomatoes
6 TB olive oil
6 TB lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
Blend the bageebiz out of it. Pour it over the rice and stir well.
Boom. No chopping.
LUNCH! Or dinner! Or breakfast! You don't know. You're sick. But it's food and actually quite delish.
