Brown Rice with Almonds and Scallions

Adding sliced almonds and scallions transforms plain old brown rice into a side dish that’s a bit more special, fun, tasty and nutritious.  Sliced almonds add texture and crunch, while sliced scallions add a refreshing bit of green, oniony spice, and tang to keep the dish fresh.  Just two quick and simple additions really help pep up a brown rice side dish.

Eggs in a Nest with Roasted Tomatoes

Adapted from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, recipe by Camille Kingsolver

I first came across this recipe when I read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle a couple years.  The other night I had a few ingredients in the refrigerator and wanted to make a quick dinner and this recipe came to mind.  I had not tried it yet, but remembered the basic idea, so just went for it.  I didn’t even look up the original recipe.  Looking at it today, I didn’t even realize the recipe called for brown rice.  I just happened to have some in the refrigerator and decided to use it.  The recipe is also great because you could make it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
