Creamy Avocado Doria

I completely misheard Jun on the phone when he said to make 1 cup of rice and made…3 cups. …oops. It was amazing though, so I regret nothing. :O Recipe adapted from here! This recipe was enough to make 2 pie tins! The two of us devoured a whole one. :x We have a serious problem, but I like to say it was because we were carb-loading for our hike the next morning. Yeah, that was definitely it. >_>

Creamy Avocado Doria

-3 cups brown rice, cooked
-1 lb. ground turkey
-1 onion, diced
-1 green pepper, diced
-1 carrot, diced
-5 cloves garlic, minced
-salt, to taste
-freshly ground black pepper, to taste
(Avocado Cream Sauce)
-2 avocados, cut into bite-sized pieces
-3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
-3/4 cup water + ~1 tbsp chicken essence (can sub with consomme soup)
-2 tbsp cornstarch
-4 tbsp flour
-1 bay leaf
-1 tbsp butter
-garlic salt, to taste
-freshly ground black pepper, to taste
-mozzarella cheese

1) Cook brown rice. (I use a rice cooker, so I can’t really help you with this.)
2) Dice all the vegetables. Heat butter in a pan on medium heat. Cook the meat until lightly browned, then add the onion, carrot, green pepper + garlic and fry until soft.
3) Add rice, mix well and season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 475.
4) (Avocado Cream Sauce) Dice the avocado. Put chicken essence, flour and cornstarch mixed with water + soy milk into a saucepan. Add the bay leaf. Put on low heat, stirring constantly, and cook until the sauce thickens.
5) Stop the heat, add the butter, remove the bay leaf and add the diced avocado.
6) Put on the heat again for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt + pepper.
7) Put fried rice into a pie dish and spread avocado sauce evenly over the rice.
8) Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake for 20 minutes or until top is lightly browned.
