Thursday: An Alternative to Takeout
Almost-Friday fatigue can make ordering in a tempting option. Instead, consider this rice dish, which has many of the elements you find in Asian cuisine, in a simple and speedy casserole. It begins with a layer of cooked brown rice. Next comes a tasty combination of sautéed Swiss chard, onion and ginger mixed with coconut milk, soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil. On top of that, you crack eggs and bake just until the whites are set; when they come out of the oven, the bright yellow yolks look stunning against the greens.
