Red Rice & Broccoli with Cranberries

Ingredients

  • Red rice (available from your local Health Food stores, Organic Grocers or speciality delis and supermarkets)
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed into a paste with a little salt
  • 1 fresh bay leaf (optional)
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • Broccoli
  • Handful of Dried cranberries
  • Olive Oil

Method

  1. Cook the red rice according to packet instructions, drain, fluff up and set aside.
  2. Steam the broccoli in small florets and set aside.
  3. Gently pan fry the onions, garlic and cumin seeds in a little olive oil with the bay leaf until the onions have softened - don't burn the cumin!
  4. Add the cooked rice to the saucepan then the broccoli and cranberries and stir through. 

That's it! So simple and really tasty. Adjust olive oil and seasoning to taste.

A combination of low GI dried fruit, nuts, seeds and the all important super foods, this muesli will keep you full all morning and give you that much needed burst of energy we all need to start the day. The beauty of this recipe is it can be changed to suit your tastes, mood and what you have left in your pantry! I highly recommend buying nuts, seeds and dried fruit in bulk so you're not not needing to replace these foods too frequently. You will also save time and energy better spent squeezing in another workout! I prepare a batch of this muesli mix in a 3 litre container and it lasts me ages! Serve with fresh berries, grated green apple, natural yoghurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Low fat dairy, soy or unsweetened almond milk is optional OR coconut water!
