SunRice shares their delicious Low GI Brown Rice Vege Bowl recipe.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
1 cup SunRice Low GI Brown Rice
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
½ capsicum, finely sliced
1/3 cucumber, chopped
¼ cup red onion, finely sliced
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper
Place rice and 2 cups of water into a medium sized saucepan, bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until all the water is absorbed (about 15-minutes) and then stand for 5-minutes.
In a small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients and place aside.
Once the rice is cooked, spoon into 2 serving bowls. Arrange the vegetables in the 2 bowls and place a tablespoon of Greek yogurt into the middle of each bowl. Add your favourite protein such as tuna, chicken, tofu or egg if you wish. Drizzle the dressing over the vegetables and protein. Best served warm.
