Curried Jasmine Rice with Black-eyed Peas and Veggies
Fiber content is higher in the brown rice, as is protein and other nutrients. Brown rice contains the entire outer kernel of the grain, which is where all the fiber and nutrients are. White rices have been stripped of this outer layer, and contain mostly sugary starch.
So anytime you can find the brown variety of any rice, go for that instead.
2 cups cooked jasmine rice
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped (scallions or leeks would be even better)
1/2 cup zucchini, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked (or drained, if using canned) black-eyed peas
2 tsp fresh parlsey (or other herb), chopped
1 tsp curry
1 tsp mustard seed
sea salt to taste
While rice is cooking, chop veggies and pan sear in extra virgin olive oil. Add seasonings. When rice is finished, add veggies to rice and mix. Enjoy!
