1/4 C raw cashews
1/4 C white beans (to reduce fat)
1/2 C almond milk
1 T nutritional yeast
1/4 t mustard
1 clove garlic
1/2 T lemon juice
1/4 t salt (I use kala namak black Indian salt)
Thin w/ rice vinegar for tangy flavor
If you keep it thick, it’s mayo… if you thin it out it’s dressing. Try replacing cashews w/ more white beans for very lowfat product. Store in refrigerated jar for up to one week.
I cook rice the same way I cook pasta. I’ve been doing it for a year, not because I knew there was any arsenic in my rice – but because I am basically a lazy person! I don’t like bothering to measure, and I don’t like burning rice on the bottom of the pot. I put more water than required in the pot, set a timer, then scoop out (or drain) the finished product. Here are my tools.
I use a mesh colander to rinse and/or to drain my rice:
Or I use a simple mesh spoon to scoop cooked rice out of the pot of water:
From the article linked at the bottom of this post you will learn:
Where the arsenic is high and low
Basmati rice contains lower levels than other rice.
Brown rice usually contains more arsenic than white rice (because of the husk).
Growing rice organically doesn’t make a difference to levels.
Rice cakes and crackers can contain levels higher than in cooked rice.
The levels of arsenic found in rice milk far exceed the amounts that would be allowed in drinking water.
How to cook rice to remove the most arsenic
Soak your rice overnight – this opens up the grain and allows the arsenic to escape.
Drain the rice and rinse thoroughly with fresh water.
For every part rice add 5 to 10 parts water and cook until the rice is tender – do not allow it to boil dry.
Drain the rice and rinse again with hot water to get rid of the last of the cooking water.
Boil high fiber pasta for 10 min, then drain (under cold water)
In second bowl TOSS TOGETHER pasta, chopped grape tomatoes, chopped olives, cubed avocado, chopped pepperoncini, splash of pepperoncini juice, splashes of rice vinegar, garlic powder, paprika, lemon pepper, nutritional yeast until tossed results are moist & seasoned to taste
Combine first & second bowl (no need to add dressing) & toss
