Moroccan Wild Rice with Hummus
This rice dish is so awesome and super easy. I make it in a big batch and keep it in the fridge for random meals and grazing throughout the day! I got the wild rice, bean, and lentil mix from Nature's Bin in Lakewood from their bulk section... but if that isn't an option, just throw in a handful of red & green lentils and some navy beans into some wild rice. Then you're good to go. :) And if you're even lazier you can use Pampered Chef's Moroccan Rub... it's AMAZING.
2 cups of Old World Pilaf from Natures Bin (OR Wild Rice, green & red lentils, and dried navy beans.)
1/2 cup of Sweet Corn
1/2 cup of chopped Spinach
Seasoned with: Sea Salt (i love Celtic Sea Salt), Black Pepper, Onion Powder, Raw Sugar, Paprika, Garlic & Dried or Fresh Lemon peel. (not a lot of lemon, just a TOUCH. you don't want that to be the main flavor. 'Tis why it's last on the list. :)
Stick your rice & bean mixture into the rice cooker and cook until done, usually about 25 minutes with wild rice. Toss into a bowl with corn and spinach.
With the seasonings, if you don't have pre mixed Moroccan spices, it is SO easy to throw together and keep in a jar for future recipes. In this dish, I spice to my taste.
Top with some homemade or store bought hummus, and NOSH!
