I should probably start by saying that I’m not one of the people who eat 3 large meals or 5 small meals throughout the day. I probably have 2 big meals and then a whole heaps of small meals…yes, I am one of the people who fall in to the serious snacker category. The impact of this is basically that I don’t usually sit down with a lunch like this – however it was so yum that I may have to start adding it in to my routine!
The meal is essentially a whole lot of delicious side dishes all together on one plate. I’ve broken it down in to each dish so that it’s easier to follow!
Cook brown rice with some chicken stock in the water. When it’s ready top with black sesame seeds
1/2 clove of garlic
Squeeze of lemon juice
Dash of olive oil
Peel the beetroot and dice in to cubes. Place in a pot of boiling water and boil for about 15 minutes.
Drain the water and place the beetroot in the fridge for a couple of minutes to cool slightly. Note: Whenever I boil beetroot I keep the beetroot juice to make a juice with once I’ve finished cooking.
Take the beetroot out of the fridge .Place ingredients in a food processor and pulse until just combined. Be careful not to do this for too long because it will become a bit too mushy. Note: Most of the time (for small quantities) instead of using a food processor I use the Magic Bullet which is quite possibly my favourite little companion in the kitchen!
Corn with Sage:
Remove the corn from the cob
Heat some oil in a saucepan and add corn. When the corn sounds like its popping remove from heat and sprinkle generously with sage
