Rice rice Baby
So, yes, it is a stretch. But would a food blog be a real food blog if there wasn’t a Vanilla Ice reference? Also, it seemed appropriate because I am an up and coming white rapper and my eyebrows are pierced, so I felt a bond there. Do you feel it? You do. Also, I really wanted to be able to spread the ability to *wax a chump like a candle..it’s a really great resume builder and, I feel, it’s a great conversation starter.
Serving size: 4-5 (depending on time of day and portliness of guests)
1 cup brown rice
2 ¾ cup water
1/3 cup fat free sodium free chicken broth
1 tablespoon butter
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup fat free half and half
1 tablespoon e.v.o.o
½ medium chopped red onion (about 1 cup)
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
4 chicken sausages (I used tomato basil chicken sausages)
3 cups diced / cubed cooked pumpkin
2 tablespoons fresh sage
½ teaspoon Cajun seasoning (I used Tony Chacheres)
1/3 cup crumbled goats cheese
1/3 cup shredded parmesan
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup arugula
(1/3 cup fat free, sodium free chicken broth, optional)

Limousine with bitches and most likely, illegal drugs to get to A1A Beach Avenue
Bring 2 ¾ cup water to a boil, add brown rice, butter and salt.. Let the rice simmer for 20 minutes, then add the half and half while doing the running man. (Difficult, if you spill, it just means you are doing it right) During the 30 minutes, do all sorts of fun and young things such as copying a classic Queen song and it making it your own, or if you are feeling down, just check out my hook while the DJ revolves it.
Mix pumpkin through arugula in a medium bowl. Set aside. Will it ever stop, yo? I don’t know.
Meanwhile, add e.v.o.o to a sautee pan, do a kick, ball change on both sides twice, then add garlic, and onion. Stir occasionally, for about 3-4 minutes, or until the red onion has a faded purple color, or is slightly see thru. Add to rice mixture in a 4 quart saucepan. Stir thoroughly to mix. Add pumpkin mixture. If the mixture seems a bit dry, add 1/3 cup chicken broth, or whatever seems necessary to moisten the rice rice, baby. Let simmer for 10 minutes on low, or no heat with a top. Ba da bing. If you’ve got a problem, yo, I’ll solve it.
