Rice With Vegetables, Seaweed, and Sprouts Recipe

Last night’s demo, Super Foods Super Feast, was on a subject that is very dear to me: actually the subject of the cookbook I am currently working on: I can’t tell you how exciting this book will be, written with a major nutritionist, chock full of beautiful pictures. I am including a chapter on a dear friend of mine who lost almost unimaginable amounts of weight, without dieting, just by eating whole foods, and who is sharing her story in this book.You must try this rice dish: substantial and delicious enough to be a main dish. If you would like, just throw in some smoked turkey or cooked chicken.

Rice With Vegetables, Seaweed, and Sprouts Recipe

Ingredients:

6 cups water

2 cups short grain brown rice

3 tbsps olive oil

3 tbsps toasted sesame oil

6 cloves garlic

2″ piece ginger

3 cups sliced shitaki caps

4″ piece daikon, grated

1 bunch kale, leaves only, very finely chopped

1/4 cup hijiki, (health food stores), soaked in 1/2 cup hot water

3 cups soy bean sprouts

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

6 scallions, finely sliced

Bottled hot sauce to taste

Instructions:

Bring the water to boil in a wide heavy pot. Add the rice, reduce the flame to medium and cook, covered, 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the oils in a large skillet. Finely grind the garlic and ginger and add to the skillet. Sauté for just one minute. Add the shitaki and sauté 2-3 more minutes. Add the daikon and kale and sauté 2-3 more minutes. Add the cooked rice and all remaining ingredients, and stir to combine. Cook 2-3 more minutes, only until cooked through. Serve hot.

    Dear Levana,

    I FIRST saw your book at my cousin’s and she loves your “table” book and so do I.
    Two things I have to ask.
    1) Please write a passover book
    2) What shall I cook for mom who is 85 diabetic with no teeth and has a hard time swallowing.I am at my wits end .I cook and grind and she rejects everything unless it is so fine.
    Help.
    Thank you amazing lady !

      Hi Mary Ann,

      I should tell you that my next cookbook will have more than 200 recipes that will be suitable for Passover. It will have 3 indexes: A regular one, a gluten-free one, and a Passover one. There are so many regular dishes you can make year round, so why not include them? I trust all my readers will find that index extremely useful.
      About your grandmother: Forgive me but I just can’t think of an answer other than, make all her food totally mushy so she can ingest it properly (grind fish, grind chicken, grind veggies etc….!)
