Here’s yet another way to serve up rice and create it in your solar oven.
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 small onion (chopped)
6 to 8 strips of bacon
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup butter (or margarine)
2 cups rice
1 cup water
dash of salt(salt substitute)
dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
On the stove top, first, prepare the bacon by frying it crispy and then crumbling it. Next, in a separate pan, melt the butter and mix in the olive oil and onions to soften them. Then, put the rice in the pan and stir over medium heat for 8-10 minutes until rice color changes. Put in the bacon, sage, salt, pepper & rosemary. Stir all well and the pour into a 3qt roaster, which is preferably a dark colored thin walled metal pot with lid. Pour in the consomme and water, cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning (sunshine), place the covered pot into your solar oven, after preheating it, an let it cook at least 4 hours. You can check it by making sure all liquids are absorbed. Remove when ready from the solar oven and stir contents again. Transfer everything into a large, glass serving bowl. It makes about 8 servings.
