I saw these recipes on Craigslist:

Hiram's Brown Rice


organic brown rice
1/2 white onion
1/2 celery rib
1/2 carrot
1/4 fresh red pepper
4 to 6 small fresh mushrooms
1/4 tsp caraway seeds
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp celery seeds
1/8 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp raisins
1 oz virgin olive oil

Prepare 2 cups of brown rice.

In a skillet, heat the virgin olive oil over medium heat, stir in the onion and stir saute for three minutes, add the sliced pepper and carrot, stir/ saute for three minutes, add the mushrooms and celery and stir/saute for four minutes, stir in the rice, mixing with the vegetables, then add the raisin and the spices, stir gently, and cover with a lid for about 8 minutes (add water if needed).

Serves about 4. You can slice the vegetables and prepare the spices while the rice is cooking, so the entire time is about 45 to 50 minutes. Does not refrigerate well and I do not recommend it. Very high in nutrients and flavor.

Hiram's Barley Soup


1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1 1/2 fresh basil leaves
1/2 white onion, diced
1/4 of a medium sized leek, only the white part
1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
2 sliced carrots
20 oz vegetable broth
1/8 cup barley

Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the minced rosemary, basil and onions. Stir frequently and cook until the onions become translucent. Add the chopped leek, celery and carrot. Stir occasionally and cook for 4 - 5 minutes. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Once vegetables and herbs have had a chance to cook together and mingle their flavors, add the broth. Bring to a boil and reduce the liquid to a simmer. Note where the height of the liquid is on the side of the pot. Add barley. Simmer for 1 hour. Add water to the pot, to bring the level back up to where it was after the broth was first added. Bring back to a boil and let it cook at a boil for 3 - 4 more minutes. Serves 3.

May be refrigerated up to three days and reheated. A very good cold weather meal.
