Retreat Recipes by Patti
Wild Rice Salad
1 cup of wild rice. Soak for 2 hours, then cook and cool.
When cold, add:
juice from 2 lemons
1/4 cup olive oil
chopped mint and parsley
nuts (toasted pine nuts are best)
salt and pepper
fresh vegetables, chopped finely- cucumber, carrot, celery, red pepper
Mix and add more lemon juice if desired.
Asian Roast Chicken
Patti used this marinate for chicken, but it is equally good for pork.
1/2 cup of hoison sauce
1/4 cup soya sauce
2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
4 clove garlic, crushed
Place whole chicken with sauce in a zip-lock bag, marinate 2 hours or longer. Roast.
Lemon-Rosemary Roast Chicken
Marinate chicken in lemon juice, olive oil and fresh rosemary.
