Have your ingredients ready to add…

Sometimes you burn the nuts, but its okay…
Looking for a healthy recipe? When in doubt, “Go with the grain!” (please be advised this is the only time I will ever recommend that) Starting with a neutral grain is never a bad bet. Use it as a personal canvas, infusing it with your own artistic skills. Maybe you’re the vinaigrette queen? Apply that here. Grow the sweetest sweet peas in town? Throw em on in. The possibilities are endless, just remember a little color never hurt!
Organic Brown Rice-3 cups
Sweet Peas-1/2 cup, shucked
Purple Amaranth-1/2 cup
Olive Oil-1 cup
Dijon Mustard-1 tsp
Cook rice on stovetop, set aside. Create citronette- squeeze lemon, add olive oil, pressed garlic, chopped shallot, and dijon. Shake. Add s&p to taste. Wash herbs, remove leaves, and chop. You should have about 2 tbsp of each. Add citronette over rice, combine well. Add sprouts, peas, oregano and thyme, combine. Lastly sprinkle with purple amaranth, top with fresh cracked pepper, and a sprig of oregano. Serve and enjoy.
