Rice wrappers are the best. They make for an incredible base for a simple, almost no-cook, quick meal. But fair warning, they do take a little practice to get perfect (and I do not have a perfect roll just yet).

I didn't quite have a bowl big enough for this, so it's more of a burrito plate. I was craving something Mexican-inspired, but wasn't in the mood for all the cheese and tortillas. This was a lightened-up version with the added benefit of super-healthy kale.

One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants, Andies, was the full inspiration for this dish. They always have amazing dill basmati rice, and lots of other great, fresh dishes with Mediterranean flavors.

    This meal was one-half what I was craving at the moment and one-half what I happened to have in the fridge. Is that the best way to cook or what? If the full recipe doesn't tickle your fancy, at least bookmark the sauce recipe --- I was loading more sauce into my wrap as I ate. Attractive, yes?

This meal was one-half what I was craving at the moment and one-half what I happened to have in the fridge. Is that the best way to cook or what? If the full recipe doesn’t tickle your fancy, at least bookmark the sauce recipe. It would be great for lettuce wraps, chicken salads or slopping up with leftover tofu like a pig (guiltyyyy).

Compared with my other salads, this was definitely the most tame. Although it wasn't as jazzy as the other salads, I really enjoyed the soft flavors from the spices and the sweet raisins that are all plumped up because they simmer with the rice and spices.

Compared with my other salads, this was definitely the most tame. Although it wasn’t as jazzy as the other salads, I really enjoyed the soft flavors from the spices and the sweet raisins that are all plumped up because they simmer with the rice and spices. This salad would be best paired with something else, and I’m considering picking up some salmon to go with my leftovers.

Wild rice salad with celery and walnut dressing

This salad gave me a great excuse to buy an ingredient I’ve been eying curiously for months: walnut oil. A great source of omega (3, 6 and 9!) fatty acids, walnut oil can usually be found in the olive oil section at the grocery store. I can definitely foresee doing some creative experiments with the oil later, but for this dish it provided a nice, Earthy undertone for the otherwise tart dressing.

Red rice salad with cucumbers, cilantro and mint

This little salad is one of those dishes I’ll come back to over and over, and whip up for simple lunches or as a side when guests come. The flavors are fresh and so lovely together.
