Brown rice and quinoa are typically my go to ‘carbohydrate’ staples that I make every so often. I always cook up extra to last me a few days so I can whip up a quick meal. This brown rice bowl came together rather easily, as I used up whatever veggies I had on hand. This dish is so full of delicious fresh ingredients and is perfect for lunch or dinner.
Brown Rice Bowl
1 cup grated purple cabbage
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup grated beets
1 bunch alfalfa sprouts
2-3 tbsp unsalted raw pumpkin seeds
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
4 slices cucumber
1-2 cups crispy tofu cubes (recipe here)
1 cup cooked brown rice
Lemon tahini dressing-recipe below (I used 3 tbsp in my rice bowl. Use leftovers for salads)
Hot sauce (optional)
Add cooked rice to a serving bowl. Add tofu, pumpkin seeds and dressing and mix well. Top with grated veggies. Garnish with sesame seeds, sprouts and cucumber.
Lemon Tahini Dressing
1/4 cup Tahini
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
1/4 cup flaked nutritional yeast or more, to taste
2-4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
1 tsp sea salt + freshly ground black pepper,
3 tbsp water, or as needed
In a food processor, add all ingredients and process until smooth. Makes just under 1 cup.
