1 cup brown rice
1.5 cup dried peas (split or whole)
4 cups water
1 lb onions (any kind)
1-2 T curry powder
4 cloves garlic
If starting with whole peas: soak the brown rice and peas separately for several hours or overnight. Boil peas in 4 cups water for 45 minutes, then add brown rice and boil 30 mins. Check to see if done, otherwise boil longer.
If split peas: soaking the rice improves flavor but is not necessary. Combine 4 cups water, peas, and rice and boil 40 mins.
Meanwhile, use another pan to fry onions, garlic, and curry powder in a small amount of olive oil. Simmer lightly until the onions are cooked. Add to pot and stir well after rice and peas are done cooking.
I'll go back to debunking the Abascal diet the next post.
