White Beans, Hijiki, Rice, and Red Cabbage
4 cups dry white (navy) beans 1 oz hijiki sea vegetable 2 cups cooked rice 1 small red cabbage, diced small 2 tbs balsamic vinegar tamari sauce to taste
Cook beans until tender, add hijiki towards end of cooking process (so it won't fall apart), saute diced red cabbage in vinegar and water until tender. Mix beans, rice and red cabbage. Add tamari sauce to taste. Let sit a few minutes so flavors will blend. Looks like veg-scrapple, but tastes pretty good. It is good without the tamari, sort of sweet and vinegary.
