Trying to Eat Cheap: Dinner, Day 23

Let's face it, macrobiotic food, aka "health food," is really cheap. I think tonight's meal comes to about $5, and we only ate half of it. That's because basically it's a bunch of brown rice with some veggies and lentils (again with the lentils...). It's another household staple of ours and excellent stick-to-your-ribs fare for the long bone-cold winter nights we get around here. Welcome to the darkest 2 months of the year, my hearties. (The blur on the right is not a ghost, it is steam.)

Here's what's in this bad boy: golden beet, parsnip, carrot, red onion, brown rice, lentils, water, wakame, rosemary (free from the garden). Throw together in an oiled covered dish and bake at 375 for at least 90 minutes. We like it with umeboshi paste and tamari.

It is not a coincidence that we are having cleansing whole grains and root vegetables practically moments before one of the biggest eating days of the year...
