Once it’s ready, fluff with a fork, then stir in some butter, sliced green onions, and chopped pecans. Serve hot.

Carrot and Fennel Salad

After trimming and shredding them, I made a little vinaigrette with a spoonful of mustard, some vinegar, sugar, and olive oil.

It just goes to show that if you can get creative, you can almost always pull off something healthy and homemade.
