3/4 c Golden raisins (do not
1/2 c Or more finely chopped fresh
1/2 c Chopped fresh parsley

Carbs:Use any of the following, depending on how "McDougall-correct" (I've
been learning a lot from you Barbara Z!) you want to be.

16 ounces dry fusilli (or any pasta, whole wheat is fine) boiled 1 cup dry
brown rice, cooked (don't know how much it makes cooked) combined with: 1
cup dry couscous (soak for 20 minutes in 1 1/3 cups boiling water) -or,
combine with any other grains such as quinoa, barley, or whatever you like
~I think this would also be delicious and nutritious if beans (white,
garbanzos, black) were added to the pasta or grains-use your imagination
and let me know how it goes!
