Sometimes life can be a juggling act trying to balance all your activities and still manage to cook a nutritious and satisfying meal for the family. Yet, there are ways to make cooking easier by using simple ingredients that will transform an ordinary dish into something hearty and flavorful.
First, we shall start with grains, particularly rice. There are traditional methods to prepare rice, which is to boil and simmer. And, then there is rice-a-la-Ronit way. For me saving time in the kitchen while preparing healthy food for the family is something of a top priority. I like to make rice dishes that are reminiscent of the flavors from where Shuli and I grew up. For example, I combine a medley of spices, herbs and dried fruit for a touch of Morocco. The end result is a richness of almonds, the sweetness of dried apricot and the chewy texture of rice. Or you can use wild rice for that extra layer of texture.
Satisfying and healthy whole grain side dishes are actually exciting when you add our ready-made rice seasonings.Whole grain dishes like barley, quinoa, rice and bulgur are full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients and are also rich in carbohydrates, the body's main fuel supply. Research shows that high-fiber foods may help you prevent weight gain or even encourage weight loss. You will feel full longer with these delicious and healthy whole grain dishes.
You don't have to travel to Morocco to enjoy a traditional Moroccan meal you can prepare a simple rice dish using our Moroccan Sweet Rice Seasoning that carries the flavors of the Mediterranean: fried onion, sliced almonds, green and black raisins, cinnamon, onion, pine nuts, orange, turmeric, black pepper and cloves.
