Veggies and grain

Veggies and grain

This week A. is very busy with work, with visitors from his headquarters, meaning dining out for him and dinner alone for me, and also taking care of the house chores. When it's the case I usually come back late from work too and cook some rather simple meals that while it cooks give me free hands for the laundry... With the fridge full of fresh summer vegetables, it was even easier: grains and vegetables every day!!!! Brown rice, barley... with bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, green beans... and topped with some gratted cheese, or some fresh mozzarella, or nothing...

It is always the same base: first in a pan I heat some olive oil, add the vegetables that need a bit of roasting or are longer to cook (eggplant, carrot...), then the main grain, the herbs (mainly rosemary from the garden this week)... then I cover with water, cook under cover, add the vegetables that need less cooking (green beans, zucchini...) and remove the cover for the last minutes of cooking. That's it! And the weekend is almost there, with a hot Sunday apparently! Take care
