Spicy Oriental Rice Salad

2 cups cooked brown rice
1 cup fresh snow peas, cut diagonally into1-inch pieces
2 cups cooked chicken or turkey (optional)
1 carrot, cut in matchsticks
2 green onions with tops, sliced

¼ cup oil
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos
2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Put brown rice in a large bowl to cool. Steam-cook snow peas for 2 minutes; run them
under cold water to stop the cooking process; set aside. Cut chicken into cubes and mix
with the rice; add carrots, green onions, and snow peas. Separately, whisk together oil,
lemon juice, garlic, Bragg Liquid Aminos, gingerroot, and red pepper flakes. Pour dressing over rice mixture and mix well. Cover and chill salad for 3 hours before serving.

Seventeen (That’s Right!) Bean Soup

1 CUP EACH
brown beans
large lima beans
small lima beans
navy beans
split lentils
green split peas
black-eyed peas
pinto beans
great northern beans
kidney beans
yellow split peas

½ CUP EACH
black beans
garbanzo beans
red beans
field beans
yellow-eyed beans
cranberry beans

1 large onion, chopped
1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon sea salt (optional)
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

This is a great way to become familiar with the variety of dried beans available. (Of course, you can buy a prepackaged bean mix instead.) After making this recipe, you will have 12 cups of beautiful mixed dried beans on hand. Display them in a glass canister or distribute them in small bags to friends.

Prepare a “Seventeen Bean” mix by putting all of the beans (in their assigned
proportions) in a bowl. Using your hands, mix them well. Take out 2 cups of mixed beans. Pick over them and remove any debris or broken beans, rinse them thoroughly in cool water, drain, and place them in a pan. Cover them with plenty of water and let them soak overnight. The next day, drain beans and rinse them well.

In a stockpot, combine beans with 8 cups of water (or to cover); bring to a boil, reduce
heat, cover, and simmer for 3 hours. Add onion, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper, and additional water to thin the soup. Simmer for 30 minutes more.

Variations

Simmer a leftover turkey carcass with the beans, removing the bones before adding the
final ingredients. Or instead of thinning with water at the end, add a 16-ounce can of
tomatoes, coarsely chopped, and a red chili pepper or 1 teaspoon chili powder.

This is one of my favorite winter soups. I add one strip of Kombu (sea vegetable) to the beans while they cook.
