Rainbow Bowl with Pink Rice

If you ask me what is my favorite lunch, I will say, “easy lunch.” For me, it means fast in cooking, wholesome and, of course, yummy. Lunch that makes me want to rock and roll not sleep ;). 

One of my favorite formulas is a bowl of gluten-free grain + greens, roasted and/or fresh vegetables + hummus or an egg.

Today I want to share how to make a beautiful pink rice which can be a delicious base for any of your lunch bowls. I love to add to my rice coconut milk. It gives an additional flavor to the rice making it super tender.

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 medium size organic beet
  • Salt
  • Pepper

  • Fresh cucumber, radish
Instructions
  1. Boil the beet until it tender.
  2. Then grate it on a large grater. Set aside.
  3. Cook rice according to instructions on the bag. (Usually about 30 min)
  4. When rice is ready add coconut milk and beet in the pot with rice. Stir well.
  5. Sweet Purple Potato Mash
  6. To make mashed sweet potato, bake a large potato in the oven (400 degrees F ) for about 35 min or until it is soft.
  7. Let it cool a little and peel the skin off. Mash potato using a fork. Add a little piece of butter and pinch of salt
  8. Add a spoon of curry hummus (favorite hummus), slices of fresh cucumber and radish.
  9. Mmm..lunch is ready!

So simple and well…beautiful!

There are so many different variations you can create with this rice.

A few of our favorites additions to the rice:

sauteed spinach+mushrooms+fresh cucumber;

sweet potato mash+hummus+cucumber, carrots and radish;

soft egg + roasted corn and broccoli…

So, you can be as creative as you want. Rule number one — make your bowl colorful!

Do not forget that you can always wrap rice with vegetables in seaweed sheets and get a delicious roll. Add some soy sauce to it and enjoy. Mmm…we love it!

Enjoy! 😉

Love, Zhenya xoxo
