How'd you like a black eye .....
Normally not one to succumb to supermarket checkout line magazines, this one caught my eye a few weeks ago. After briefly skimming through the recipes ... I put it back on the rack as hubby had already paid for our goods. Next time at the store, I took a little more time giving it my approval ... then succumbed. I can honestly say, this is one well written piece .. with good 'clean' food recipes and easy to understand articles about clean eating. With a name like 'Clean Eating' magazine ... what else would you expect. I checked out their website and found some easy to follow recipes ... if you're a gardener ... and put away some provisions for the winter ... most of the ingredients are probably in your pantry/freezer/root cellar.
Black Eyed Peas and Brown Rice
These are the ingredients:
• 4 cups cooked, cold, long-grain brown rice
• 1¼ cups water
• 1 onion, chopped
• 2 celery stalks, chopped
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
• 3 cups cooked black-eyed peas
• 1 butternut squash, about 1lb, peeled, seeded and cut into cubes
• 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
• ½ tsp hot pepper sauce

I cut this recipe in 1/2 and it made 5-6 servings
