My Favorite Rice Bowl

vegan rice bowl

Crunchy salty yumm

This was the first thing I made that I loved when first transitioning to a low-acid, nutrient dense diet many years ago. I still love it!

A few things to be aware of: this dish is a high-carb high-fat dish, less helpful if you are trying to release weight and more helpful if you need more calories.  It is super healthy but has a greater impact on blood sugar levels than most of the recipes I post. It includes the use of Braggs Amino Acids, which some people have reactions to and over which there is some controversy as to whether or not it actually contains MSG.

Ingredients:

Lots of chopped veggies! I usually use:

2 cups chopped carrots, raw

1/2 cup chopped green onions, raw

1 cup chopped purple cabbage, raw

4-5 cloves garlic, chopped and raw (an acquired taste for some)

3 cups chopped fresh broccoli, lightly steamed

1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped

1 cup fresh basil, chopped

4 cups cooked brown rice

flax oil

Bragg Liquid  Amino Acids

Squeeze of lemon

Eden “Eden Shake” Sesame and Sea Vegetable Seasoning (P.S. – contains “pickled beefsteak leaf” – that’s part of the mint family, not from an animal!)

To Make:

Divide the rice into 4 bowls. I usually give myself 1 serving (1/2 cup), and my husband  (a lean guy!) 2 or 3 servings. Drizzle with flax oil and a little bit of Braggs.  Generously add the chopped raw veggies, garlic, and chopped almonds. Squeeze a bit of lemon over each bowl and finish with the Eden Shake, a very nutritious, low-sodium-but-salty-tasting treat if you can find it.

You have a super, crunchy, creamy, salty, nourishing, filling rice bowl.

Tip:  When you bring home fresh veggies, chop them up right away.  Having what you want on hand, made into chopped vegetables and crudites, makes preparing a great salad or rice bowl a snap.  If you have lots of vegies ready, you’ll add more to a dish that if you have to chop everything at dinner.

I look forward to reading your experience with this dish!
