Curried Potatoes

Slice a large onion and brown in two tablespoons of butter. Cut up boiled potatoes (about two cups) and put into the frying-pan with the onion, dredge with curry powder, add half a cup of water, a little salt, and a squeeze of lemon. Cook ten minutes and serve hot.

Rice (Southern Style)

Rice served as a vegetable is often used as a substitute for potatoes. Unpolished rice is more delicious than the usual rice.

Rice should be served dry, steaming hot, never mushy, and with every grain separate. Wash one cup of rice, till the water is no longer cloudy; drain thoroughly. Boil briskly three cups of water, a scant teaspoon each of salt and butter; into this drop the rice gradually so as not to stop the boiling. Do not stir. The grains must be kept moving by the boiling water. Cook fifteen minutes; the rice will have absorbed the water. Place on the back of the stove or in the oven, to dry out.

Boiled Rice May Be Varied In Many Ways

It is delicious combined with cheese as one would use macaroni, or with tomato - a pinch of cayenne, a few drops of onion juice. Rice served with cabbage, with cream sauce, is a favorite combination. Rice and baked bananas are delicious together. Cook each separately; spread a spoonful of hot rice on a plate or saucer, and place on top a baked banana, just out of the oven.

Oyster-Plant Cakes

Boil oyster-plant till soft, mash through a sieve, beat eggs light, allowing one egg to one teacup of vegetable. Form into balls with floured hands, and saute brown.


Peel and cut in rounds, in cubes, or in long strips. Cook in boiling salted water till tender. Serve with cream sauce. Or toss the carrots in the following mixture: For two cups of the cut carrots, take one tablespoon of butter, one teaspoon of sugar, lemon juice, and a little salt and pepper; put in a saucepan, add the carrots, and shake till the mixture is absorbed. Carrots and peas served together are appetizing.
