I have found a website called babyfit.com and am very excited to use it to track my nutrition information during this pregnancy. They have some recipes on there, as well. Tonight I made their Artichoke Risotto, which originally calls for tofu, but I decided to use chicken instead.
It is really good!! After first eating some of it I started feeling incredibly nauseated again, but then that passed. Weird.
For those of you that are pregnant, I definitely recommend checking out this website! They have all sorts of helpful tools to track your liquid consumption (make sure you’re not dehydrated!) the right levels of the foods you need to eat, your exercise, phases of your pregnancy, etc. Pretty darn cool.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted margarine (use vegan for v)
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups uncooked carnaroli rice
1/4 cup soy milk (you can also use skim milk)
1/4 cup apple juice
6 cups vegetable stock
1 (8 ounce) container firm tofu, cubed
1 (6.5 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts,
drained, liquid reserved
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (8.75 ounce) can low salt yellow corn
cayenne pepper to taste
1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat oil and margarine. Stir in 1/2 the onion, and saute until tender. Stir in the rice, and cook until lightly browned.
2. Pour soy milk and apple juice into the rice. When the rice has absorbed the liquids, gradually pour in vegetable stock, about 1/2 cup at a time, until absorbed. Reserve about 1/4 cup stock. Cover, and cook about 20 minutes, until rice is tender.
3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, lightly brown the tofu and remaining onion in the reserved marinated artichoke heart liquid. Stir in the garlic.
4. Remove the rice from heat, and thoroughly mix remaining vegetable stock, tofu mixture, artichoke hearts, corn, and cayenne pepper into the rice.
