Simple Food Makes Cooking Fast & Easy – Simple Brown Rice & Simple Green Beans

I had a really simple dinner last night and I found it really easy to make. The more you make food from simple whole ingredients the easier it becomes. It took me a while, a few weeks or a couple of months to make a habit of piecing together whole ingredients and not searching for the packaged processed food to just add water to.

Make changes start small.  Add good food before taking things away from your diet. 

For dinner last night I had brown rice, sauteed green beans from my garden and grilled sausage.

There is something so satisfying about eating from the garden in your back yard. It will be the best food you ever eat.

Simple Brown Rice Recipe:serves 4
Ingredients:
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
2 table spoons olive oil
2 cups Brown Rice

Directions:
Chop onion and garlic and finely as you can or want. Saute together in a pot with the olive oil, until the onions get soft, but before the oil start smoking on medium heat. When the onions are soft add the dry rice and stir it in. The rice will start slightly toasting. I usually serve 1/2 cup of rice per person, more if I want left overs. After no more than 5 minutes or so add the water, 4 cups of water for 2 cups of rice. Turn the stove to low medium and let it simmer. When all the water is soaked up into the rice, remove from heat.

Simple Green Beans
Ingredients:
fresh and local green beans
butter
slice of lemon
salt & pepper

Directions:
Clean the beans and remove the tops. Add to frying pan, add however much butter you want, turn on stove to medium heat. Once butter has melted and the beans start to cook add salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Taste beans until they are at a cooked but crunchy consistency. Enjoy!
