I spent 10 years of my life as a vegetarian. I loved being a vegetarian. Even today, I sometimes feel like an icky traitor for eating meat. I’m aware that I’m weird. Just play along. I feel a special allegiance to meatless cuisine, and we eat meatless meals often around here. A few weeks ago, I received a cookbook called Dollars to Donuts: Comfort Food and Kitchen Wisdom from Route 66’s Landmark Rock Cafe from a friend in PR. It’s full of my kind of recipes: simple, healthy, comfortable. And so delicious. This beans and rice recipe comes from Dollars to Donuts, and the author explains that they serve it with meat in the restaurant. The recipe is provided for the meaty version, too.
