I'm Dreaming of a "Rice" Christmas
  • 2Servings


  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cooked broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese


In a medium saucepan, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel- lined plate to drain. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon bacon grease from the skillet. Add the carrot, celery and bell pepper and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli, brown rice and turmeric and cook until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool.

Serve the rice in a dog dish. Crumble the bacon on top and let it snow with the parmigiano-reggiano!
