Good food, Good life

Good taste is important. To eat deliciously is every bit as meaningful as to eat nutritiously. Fortunately, the two are not mutually exclusive.

Recently I made a dish of rice with ground beef and green peas, a dish that I used to make often when the kids were small. At that time it was convenient to have an all in one meal that they all enjoyed, but now it has simply become a family classic.

To make this dish begin by cooking up a batch of white rice. In another pan saute some chopped onions and garlic in olive oil, then add extra lean ground beef along with a teaspoon of cumin, a teaspoon of coriander powder, and salt and pepper to taste. While that is cooking, chop up a handful of parsley and get out some  plain yogurt.

During the last 4-5 minutes of the meat cooking, add a half cup or so of frozen peas. Now, stir the entire batch of rice and meat together. Serve on plates, topping with a generous amount of chopped parsley and yogurt.

Nutrition never tasted better!
