The rice is the topping, not the foundation. The veggies are the main deal this time. In the past, the rice, potatoes, beans or pasta were the bulk of the dish, with the veggie or meat being the topping. Big families needed to extend the food by adding a low cost carb along with the high cost vegetable and even higher cost animal meat.
Try reversing the trend/practice. That was a hundred years ago. Have we not progressed enough to reduce the carb and eliminate the animal?
See if you like it. Go ahead TURN THE TABLES. Then do it with pasta, rice, beans and potatoes. Make them the topping. Tastes great that way. You decide for yourself though!!
Yeah, FLIP THOSE FLIPPIN’ TABLES.
