Green Brown Rice

Over the weekend I cooked up a pot of short-grain brown rice to use in meals throughout the week, such as this Green Brown Rice. I'm a big one-pan-dish fan and love anything green in my belly, so this one's a winner all around.

To cook brown rice: Combine 1 cup short grain brown rice, 2 cups water, a tiny drizzle of olive or flaxseed oil and a pinch of sea salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, stir, cover and immediately reduce heat to low. Simmer for 45 minutes. Do not lift lid even once while cooking!! After 45 minutes has passed, remove pan from heat, fluff rice with a fork, recover and allow to cool.

Sauté 1/4 of an onion in a tiny drizzle of olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes. Add 1/2 cup chopped broccolini, stir and sauté a few more minutes. Add one minced clove garlic, some halved snow peas (about half a cup) and 1/2 to 1 cup cooked rice, depending on your appetite. Sprinkle with tamari soy sauce or coconut aminos. Stir, cover, and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Adjust salt level with more tamari if desired. Top with a handful of pumpkin seeds and enjoy!
