Elysha's Veggie-Rice Pot Pie
Makes 6 cups
1 1/2 to 2 cups rice (Less would make it a little more creamy)
4 cups water- to cook the rice in
2 1/2 cups water
4 rounded tsp of quality- good ingredient bouillon powder or cubes
2 tsp parsley
1/4 cup liquid coconut oil
1/2 cup whole wheat flour, freshly ground
1 tsp onion flakes
1 tsp, good quality non-refined, sea salt
4 cups of cooked veggies of choice
Get water boiling for rice. Once water is boiling, add rice and turn down to a simmer. Cook for approx. 45 mins.
While rice is cooking get 2 1/s cups water for "Sauce A" boiling in a separate pan. When boiling, add boullion powder or cubes, stir until dissolves.
In yet another pan :), steam any veggies that are to be put in. Hint: if you don't have a steamer, or don't want to dirty another pan, just thaw some peas in a strainer with hot water and stir them in at the very last. Done! :)
In another pan, pour the liquid coconut oil in the pan. Have it on Medium heat. Pour in the onion flakes and stir them until a VERY light brown. Add the whole-wheat flour and turn until it is a thick paste. Then pour in the "Sauce A" (Boullion mixture) and mix with the thick paste. Keep stirring and allow it to thicken. Add the salt and pepper at this point.
When the Sauce, uh... I guess we'll call it "Sauce C" :), is thick, now is the time to mix everything together. Mix the rice, veggies, and sauce. Stir until all of the rice is coated. Yay!!! You did it! Your family will love this one.
You MUST watch out for nasty ingredients in boullion. Try to avoid as many ingredients as you can that do not grow out of the ground. Like: Monosodium Glutamate, Autolyzed yeast, etc. They do not do a body good. :)
This is the liquid coconut oil and flour mixture. I added more flour in the end, SO your will look thicker than this, actually more like a paste.
Pour "Sauce A" (Boullion Mixture) in with the flour-coconut oil paste. Stir until thickens.
Mix all together! Rice, sauce and veggies.
There she is! The most delicious and healthy "Pot Pie" recipe that you have ever seen. :):)
