This is a quick and easy go to supper or lunch for the whole family. Back in my childcare days rice was a great meal for the kids. I found that lots of kids like rice (especially if you put ketchup on it…shhhhh) and you can chop up veggies that they might other wise reject and mix it all together – stir-fry style. By choosing a brown rice you don’t get that blood sugar spike that you do with white rice and it’s a healthy source of energy, protein and fibre.
Hubby cooked lunch with a side of kombucha! 😍 Brown basmati rice cooked in bouillon, garlic (a powerful immune booster and anti-inflammatory), shiitake mushrooms (lower your blood pressure by relaxing artery walls), onions (too many benefits to list 😉, black beans (an excellent source of protein), S&P, No Salt Added Costco spice mix, corn, parsley, dill and fresh mango (loaded with fibre, live enzymes to promote good digestion and of course vitamin C!).
…for the adults a few chilli flakes on top!
TIP: cooking your grains in bouillon gives them huge depth of flavour and can really change your mind when it comes to the umami factor of a simple grain
