Buttered Sweet Pea Rice
To make Buttered Sweet Pea Rice pareve (dairy- and meat-free), replace butter with olive oil. Then you can serve it to people keeping kosher (who don't eat meat and dairy at the same meal).
Chili Garlic Jazz
Preheat oven to 250°F. In a food processor combine 1 cup coarsely chopped garlic, 1/2 cup coarsely chopped red finger or Fresno chiles, and 1/4 cup canola oil. Process 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture forms a thick paste. Pour into an oven-safe 1 quart pot. Add 1/2 to 2/3 cup canola oil; the oil should come just over the top of the mixture. Cover; bake 45 to 60 minutes or until mixture smells toasty. Let cool completely. Refrigerate in a screw-top jar up to 1 month.
