Did You Know?

Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Jamaican Brown Rice


A great pair for the baked Jamaican jerk tofu recipe posted recently, this rice is light, slightly fruity, and a nice change from traditional rices.  When I made it, Ashley wasn't too happy about the idea of a fruity rice.  So much so, she refused to eat it, even after acknowledging that it smelled good and that the tofu was good.  Don't let her refusal scare you!  It was delicious and a great pairing with the tofu! 

1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 large white onion, sliced
1/2 red apple, cored and sliced
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup coconut milk
2/3 cup brown rice
2 tsp dark molasss
1 small banana, sliced
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp unsweetened flaked coconut 

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. 

Add the onion and red apple; cook and stir until onion is transparent. 

Season with curry powder, brown sugar, and stir in the water and coconut milk. 

Add the rice and molasses, cover, and cook over low heat until the rice is tender, and water has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. 

Mix in the banana, then sprinkle the coconut on top. Heat through for a moment over low heat before serving.
