Frugal Meal With Good Protein

Frugal Meal With Good Protein


Hi, I’m phyllis from Southernfrugal.com Well today. We’re going to have some lentils and rice Now I first want to tell you about the rice I found this that I Believe it was at Bi-Lo Or it might have been Walmart, I’m not sure but anyway. I want to tell you a little bit about The Brown Rice. I have tried every brand known to man And I always end up cooking it one time We don’t like it. I throw the bag out and So when I saw this one, this is one I’ve never tried before and so I thought well I’m going to give it one more try and I’ll have to tell you this rice is delicious It’s Jasmine Brown rice. Now I went ahead and cooked it last night because I wanted to know if it was going to be good There it is and it only has to cook really about twenty minutes. Just like regular rice, but it’s brown rice, so Obviously, you know probably healthier for you But it’s got about three grams of Protein and that would be per fourth of a cup So that would be like half a cup cooked I guess. So anyway we’re going to have that I’m going to warm that back up and we’re going to have some of this for lunch and One of my favorite things to have with rice are lentils now these are- I Just call them red lentils. They’re actually kind of a peach color, but they’re much smaller than the brown lentils you see much much smaller and but basically Lentils all have the same food value regardless of what color they are. Now I’m not talking about split pea those little green things now I’m talking about Lentils, so They have got um 9 grams of protein in a 1/4 of a cup dried Kind of like the rice only it’s nine grams instead of three so now with the rice We’ll probably have a whole cup and with the lentils. We’ll probably have a whole cup. So really we’ve got what Roughly, I don’t know. What is that nine? 18, 19, 21 about 24 grams of Protein in the meal, but I’m also going to have with this meal some Thai eggs my daughter-in-law Arlene showed me how to make the Thai eggs; which of course her mother’s from Thailand and they for some reason they just get really well with lentils and rice and also, we’re going to have a little bit of a salad. So anyway, I’m going to get the lentils rinsed and They have to cook about 20 minutes. Just like the rice, but of course I’ve already got some cooked rice so I’ll just be warming that up and Anyway, what I do is just rinse these off but first I’ll spread them out on a piece of wax paper and just look through Them just to make sure there are no rocks because every once in a while in lentils Regardless of what color very you’ll find a little rock or two so I just make sure they’re no rocks. Now I’m going to cook a lot Because we love lentils, and I actually love them you know on top of a salad all kinds of ways and they give you a lot of really plant-based protein so I’m going to go ahead and rinse these off and and Start cooking them and we’ll be back in just a little while okay, the Lentils are done Is what they look like, and I did make some extra on that because I’m going to actually pour them as soon as they cool I’m going to pour them into ice trays and we can have them in the smoothies. They’re kind of going to be tasteless in a smoothie And they will add that extra protein all right hold on my rice is all warmed hold on Okay, we’re back and what I’ve got is three large eggs, and they’re just going to give it a good beat This is going to be Thai eggs a little salt And a little teriyaki now for super authentic Thai eggs you would use fish sauce So I just put my teaspoon in there Shake you can see and I’m going to use some onion salt And I’m gonna use some garlic powder excuse me that was not onion salt it was onion powder Okay I’ve got a little bit of smart balance oil in my pan, and I’ve got my burner on medium and The my daughter in law fixes them, she really almost browns and cook a really little fast And I don’t really cook mine that fast Beat them really really good. Sorry you couldn’t see. So my skillet’s good and hot and I’m just gonna dump the eggs in. All right, so now you Can’t see again there So just going to let them cook for just a little while. So they’ll get real kind of lacy looking on the side there And then my daughter in law always said Rice is our bread for Thailand. That’s what she said so I like the Thai rice I mean excuse me the Jasmine rice and this is Brown Jasmine rice With salt and just a little butter on top All right, so we’re letting our egg just cook and cook. Now what I like to do because I’ve got three eggs in here. Stick a little fork and kind of raise it up in the middle And let some of that get down to the surface Usually they only cook like one egg at a time Let me show them. I turn my burner down – really so little pass medium-low. Let me get my butter So we’re going to go ahead and dip the rice out on the plates Got plates all set up and already got our tea fixed Now we’re ready to flip this Hopefully I can get it all flipped at one time No, doesn’t matter just flip it however you can. See how it’s ever the slightest bit brown This rice is very nice, and it’s very fluffy. I just I love it So yeah this is the only brown rice I have ever liked I don’t know why, but I just really, for some reason just don’t like other kinds of brown rice And what I do is just cut it Go ahead and take it off the burner Oh you couldn’t see that again see how it’s ever the slightest bit brown. I know I wouldn’t have never thought brown eggs You know like if you were frying. So I just cut it in a little bitty Not a little bitty, but squares like that Just with the spatula you Still can’t see right there just cut it in squares now these are exactly the kind of eggs you use in fried rice only you cut them up into shreds and it’s also the same of Really base for egg foo yung which I think is interesting Since that’s really Chinese, but this is what they use And if it were egg foo yung, you would just put shrimp and you know all kinds of Bean Sprouts and You know or it could be chicken Foo yung shrimp foo young and pork Foo yung whatever and you just put bean sprouts and all kinds of you know vegetables in there right Here and look I’m ready to butter this rice. It’s already got salt all that just put a blob of butter right on top And Mr.. Bucky likes a little Teriyaki on his we also want to put a little bit of teriyaki on the eggs; just a little bit. Sprinkle it on like that, all right So we’re ready to eat. What I need to do is get some salad in the plates And this is just that baby Salad. Sorry I’m not a very good camera person today Now made up some salad dressing. It’s just oil vinegar a bit of vinegar and Salt, a little garlic powder, and a little a little onion powder. Im just going to put a few little slices of tomato on that. Here’s the salad dressing to just put oil vinegar and basil Garlic, onion Powder and I think I put a little bit of dill in there, too. So just a little bit of a spoonful right over the tomatoes, that’s how I do that Because it will kind of run down on the salad also. So we made up about three tablespoons, okay? We are ready now for the lentils They’re gonna be a little bit runny. So this right beside the rice Almost look like creamed corn, but it’s packed with protein And now the eggs. I’m hoping y’all can see that. The eggs go right on the plate Sort of beside the salad And by the way these are very very tasty eggs I think they would be good if you’re just used to regular Scrambled eggs, but they are quite delicious and especially with Jasmine rice all right. Let me take this over and show y’all closer There it is There are the eggs they puff way up to by the way, and our salad this is the Jasmine Brown rice let me show you that again It’s Golden Star prime Thai Hom Mali I guess Jasmine Brown rice three grams of protein per half a cup cooked there are the lentils right there, got just sea salt and a little bit of olive oil in them. There the Thai eggs and Of course a little salad And our iced tea, so we are ready to eat. All right, we will see y’all next time
