I love this post, cause I feel exactly the same way. I actually grind up my favorite crackers, which seems to do the trick for me.

I make a very similar dish, which is a staple in my kitchen. The only difference is I add some diced green pepper. See my version

Irons in the fire by riceoflife on Dec 29, 2008 at 4:25 PM PST

I love my cast iron pan. It makes everything good. I especially love making home fried potatoes in the skillet on the weekends. I really can’t think of a better way to start the morning.

Rice and bean favorites by riceoflife on Dec 19, 2008 at 11:58 AM PST

I love this collection of beans and rice dishes. It is perhaps my staple food, and I share many versions/ideas on my blog Rice of Life.

Here are some of my favorites:

Rajma - Indian kidney beans
*Mujadarrah - Lentils and rice with friend onions
*Pinto beans and rice

Thanks Deborah for another great recipe. I love the idea of putting cardamom in this dish. I’ve got to try making this!

It’s also interesting that I ran into your post today. I just posted a dish I made from one of your recipes on my blog, Rice of Life. Thx again!
