Three ways with leftover rice - eat your greens

Sunday is the day when I cook grains and pulses, roast seeds and nuts  for the next five days. My favorite grain is short brown rice, it's sticky, grainy and flavoursome, perfect for a quick and healthy lunch . Organic Suma short brown rice is my favorite, I simply soak 1 - 2 cups in cold water over night, the next day I rinse out the rice and cook it for 20 - 25 minutes on a very low temperature.... 

This one is the easiest dish ever, ideal for one of those days when I haven't been for a run or long walk: simply cut one broccoli head in half and cook / steam it . The rice is flavored by one Tbsp of tamari . 1/4 to 1/2 avocado is must have !

This fresh salad is very rich of nutritional food: chickpeas, chopped fresh tomatoes, spring onions, sunflower seeds, topped by some homemade hummus as well as red pepper and cucumber. 

Roast sweet potatoes, kale and cooked rice was already in the fridge, I just had to chop some avocado and red cabbage and season it with olive oil and lemon juice !

I am sharing this post as a contribution to  eat your greens the lovely blog called Allotment 2 Kitchen 

I am also contributing to Cook once eat twice , another blog that is dear to me, it's called Searching for spice


  1. Wowzer Laura, first prize goes to you for being quick of the mark with #EatYourGreens. These rice dishes are awesome, the first two have me excited, love the colours. Thank you.

  2. Both these dishes sound gorgeous and so healthy too! I am really into red cabbage at the moment and I love the way it's added to the second dish. Thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice too! It would be great if you could add the link to your post to help spread the word and add it to the linky too.

  3. I love short grain brown rice! I like the simplicity of your dishes, perfect for after work mid week meals. I often add a drizzle of tahini dressing - lovely!
