Here's What You Should Eat For Dinner

Tasty, nutritious and ready in less than thirty minutes. As dinner should be.



Deena Shanker / BuzzFeed


Recipe by Deena Shanker


Serves 2 – 3


INGREDIENTS

4 bell peppers, any color, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 head of broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets

3 tablespoons of olive oil, divided

salt and pepper, to taste

1 cup of uncooked brown jasmine rice

2 ¼ cups of vegetable stock (water is okay if you don't have stock)

½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon of parsley, chopped


PREPARATION

Preheat your oven to 450°F, and line two large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped peppers and broccoli, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss everything together and then spread on the baking sheets.


Roast the vegetables for about 20 — 25 minutes. You want the broccoli to be slightly charred and the peppers to start to blacken around the edges.


Meanwhile, make your rice. In a large saucepan, heat the third tablespoon of olive oil and toast the uncooked rice for a minute. Add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. (If you're using water, add some salt, too.) When it starts to boil, close the lid, turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 20 – 30 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed.


When the vegetables are done, add them to the rice, as well as the Parmesan and parsley. Stir it all together.


To serve, divide between 2 or 3 bowls, depending on how hungry you are. Garnish with extra parsley and/or Parmesan, if you want.

8 Portland Dishes That Should Be Spoofed On "Portlandia"

From Scorpion Salt to a Cock-N-Balls Doughnut.


Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's IFC comedy series Portlandia is now in its fifth season of production, and whenever folks visit Portland these days you'll often hear the same thing over and over: "That's so Portlandia." Featured in Food Lover's Guide to Portland , these eight real Portland food and drink products definitely fit the bill and could easily be spoofed on an upcoming episode.


Scorpion Salt, The Meadow


Scorpion Salt , The Meadow


Remember the dumpster diving episode of Portlandia? Well this would be a pretty scary dumpster find: chili-infused fleur de sel with edible scorpions. According to The Meadow: "The idea was to embrace edible insects without forcing their presence in the shop. So when we found the perfect scorpion pepper powder we also got ourselves some edible scorpions." Aaaaand: "If you grind the scorpion into the salt you get an incredible nutty taste on top. The scorpion alone is best dipped in honey and covered with the scorpion salt." Truth is oftentimes better than fiction.


The Meadow


Clear Creek Eau de Vie of Douglas Fir, Clear Creek Distillery


Clear Creek Eau de Vie of Douglas Fir , Clear Creek Distillery


Tree-flavored liquor? Yep. I think that Andy Samberg's mixologist character in Season 2 would have totally dug dousing some newfangled cocktail with this spirit, made with unaged Oregon brandy infused with Douglas fir buds (Oregon's state tree!) handpicked by Clear Creek employees. Had me at handpicked.


Clear Creek Distillery


Foietella, Xocolatl de David


Foietella , Xocolatl de David


David Brigg's Foietella — sweet and savory foie gras chocolate spread — surely could have been an option at the artisanal movie concessions stand in Season 3. One large Coke and some of that sweet, sweet meat butter please.
