a simple, healthy recipe for dinner tonight (in 20 minutes)
Cilantro Brown Rice with Assorted Veggies and Carrot Ginger Soup
organic brown basmati rice
fresh organic cilantro
organic raw cashews
organic red, yellow, and orange peppers
organic green beans
red onions - (honestly, not sure if the onion was organic, but not totally necessary to buy organic anyways…)
Pacific Organic Cashew Carrot Ginger Soup
I love coming up with my own recipes. I am not exact with my ingredients, so I recommend adding in as much cilantro and lime juice as you feel tastes the best! All I did was boil the rice in a pot of water. While I was waiting for the rice to be ready, I sautéd the veggies with a drop of extra virgin olive oil in a separate pan. Once the rice was cooked, I mixed in the freshly chopped cilantro and added fresh lime juice and threw in a handful of cashews. That's it! It took under 20 minutes for everything to be ready. I scooped a serving of rice into my fancy bowl/plate and layered the veggies on top.
*The carrot ginger soup is optional, but I poured 1/4 a cup of the heated soup onto my veggies and rice to create more of Thai fusion.
It was delicious!
