Healthy vegetable rice with nuts!

Dear Purity, I am printing your recipes and using them to enhance Kasaya’s meals

Healthy Eating

I know there are many witnesses to this. I grew up with a guy who loved rice. Oh! He could eat rice everyday. For some of us who never liked eating meat, let alone rice, and only wheat products make us full, it is a big task to think of rice as a dinner meal. I am not sure I can survive well in Madagascar, but it is possible to adapt and adjust.

For the moment, I write to share this recipe that comes in handy those days when you need to be creative around rice. Either one has some left over rice and also when you have vegetarians and gluten intolerant guests. It is also an indirect way to get kids to eat veges!

All you need is rice, a spoon of oil, salt, vegetables and nuts(optional), spices (optional) and you have a balanced meal!

It is also an indirect way to get kids to eat veges!All you need is rice, a spoon of oil, salt, vegetables and nuts(optional), spices (optional) and you have a balanced meal!RICE: A bowl of left over rice or cook one cup of rice for 3-4 servingsVEGETABLES: Whenever you can, think of the colors, the varied the better! When it comes to quantities, I love vegetables, so I use as much as I can. Some few combinations include:Red onions, carrots, broccoli and red capsicumRed/ White onions, carrots, french beans and rutabagaCelery, spring onions, carrots and green and red capsicumNUTS: Peanuts, Cashew nuts, WalnutsFry all the vegetables using a tablespoon of oil, like sunflower oil, then add in the nuts. Sprinkle in salt. If you are a fun of spices like I am, this is the part where you add them, but this meal takes a great taste even without spices. Mix in the rice and let the meal cook on low heat. Enjoy!
