Do the words “Domestic Goddess” give you a panic attack?  Maybe you’re a career chick who’s better at making spreadsheets than folding bed sheets, and your ideas of making your way around the kitchen is finding the microwave.  If you aren’t as trim as you want to be, check the carb content on the back of any low calorie microwave dinner.  Domestic goddestry as well as skinny genes can be faked.  Make my easy-as-pie stir-fry.  Simple Tofu and Vegetable Stir-Fry with Ginger

Ingredients for one serving brown rice

  • 2 tbsp. brown rice

Directions:

Place rice in a small pot with tight-fitting lid and cover with about 2 1/2 times the amount of water (for example if you’re cooking 4 tablespoons of rice, use 10 tablespoons of water…about 3/4 cup water). Bring to a boil, uncovered, on high heat; reduce heat to low, cover tightly and cook for about 40-45 minutes, or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
