“This dish balances salty, sweet, tangy and spicy ingredients. It is truly wonderful! :) Recipe is from Barbara Lauterbach, Cooking Light Magazine, April 2009 edition. She suggests that it be served alongside a quick rice pilaf. Cook a 10 oz package frozen white rice (such as Birds Eye SteamFresh) according to package directions. We had rice already made since there is white rice always around!! Combine cooked rice, 2 Tablespoons drained chopped water chestnuts, 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt (or perhaps one of Mrs Dash's 13 choices) and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and a sprinkling of chopped green onions. Make sure you have it all chopped and ready so that cooking it will be a breeze. ;)”
