Onion for breakfast

June 10th, 2009 at 08:18 am

I'm not sure what to call this - maybe sweet and sour pilaf. It's what you cook when the pantry's almost empty. Fry sliced onions until golden, throw in some rice and cook till the grains turn white. Add your preferred amount of salt, vinegar and sugar. Toss in a handful of raisins and pour in boiling water. cover and simmer until the rice is cooked and the water absorbed.

Sorry for no precise measurements. I'm a pinch of this and dash of that cook - I don't even own a scale.

    lol - i am the same type of cook! i dont have scales either, and i am a pastry cook/cake decorator Big Grin you should see me at work, when i am showing the apprentices what to do: 'a scoop of this, and then a bit more, and then a handful of that...' Big Grin

    That sounds like something i would eat. An alternative would be cooked rice (or i like to substitute wheat berries) with chopped green apple, raisins, olive oil, vinegar and a dash of lemon.
