Arroz Verde Recipe
1 jim vorheis
1 1/2 cup unconverted long-grain rice
1/3 cup safflower oil, melted chicken fat,, or melted lar
3 tbsp finely chopped white onion
2 chilies poblanos, charred, peeled,, and cut in strips
4 cup chicken broth
1 garlic clove, peeled and roughly ch, opped
1 cup firmly packed, roughly chopped flat, -leaf parsley
1/2 cup firmly packed, roughly chopped epaz, ote or cilant
1 sea salt to taste
1 green rice
Put the rice into a bowl and pour very hot water over to cover; stir
and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain in a strainer and rinse in cold
water; drain again and set aside.
Heat the oil in a heavy pan, stir the rice into it, and fry over
fairly high heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan, for
about 5 minutes. Add the onion and chile strips and continue frying
for 4 minutes or until the onion is translucent.
Meanwhile, put 1 cup of the broth into a blender jar; add the garlic,
parsley, and epazote and blend until smooth. Add this to the frying
rice and continue frying and reducing the puree over quite high heat,
stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan, until the rice is dry.
Stir in the rest of the broth, add salt to taste, and cook over
fairly high heat, uncovered, until the liquid has been absorbed and
there are air holes in the rice. Cover with a towel and lid and
continue cooking over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat
and set aside, still covered, in a warm place for the rice to swell
up. Before serving, turn the rice over with a fork from the bottom
where a lot of the flavor and oil will have settled.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
(includes cilantro, turnip greens and winter squash)
These colorful healthy plants are rich in the carotenoids believed by nutritionalists be a key nutrient in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lung, esophagus and stomach. Most are low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
