Rice and Spice (formerly Cheesy Beef and Rice):

1 garlic clove, minced
½ onion, chopped
3 C veggie broth
2 carrots, shredded
1 t. dried parsley flakes
½ t. dried basil
½ t. salt
In large saucepan, saute rice, garlic, and onion in olive oil until golden brown. Stir in broth, carrots, spices. Bring to boil, cover, simmer a few minutes. Bake, covered, at 325 for 22 minutes, check, stir, bake longer if needed.
It was really not the same without the meat and cheese. I forced myself to eat it. Even Noah didn't like it. Mike actually liked it, but I added a leftover chopped up turkey burger to his. Sarah helped me make it, but wouldn't try it. I was left with a big pot of it to reconfigure in some way to make it more attractive.
Today it occurred to me to turn it into a wrap. I spied the leftover baked sweet potato on the counter and added a little salt and a bunch of whole wheat flour to it to make a dough, which I rolled into tortillas and cooked.
Then I filled it with last night's leftover's, which I covered up with salsa, red pepper, green onion, and lettuce,
rolled it up,
and offered it to my favorite vegan boy.
He loved it and asked for another! I ate one and liked it too. Success!
