Black Rice Super Salad

The salad to top all salads!
Plus its my lunch for the week ahead so that’s pretty good too,

I love a good wholesome, flavour packed salad bowl!
None of this bland cos lettuce and dull protein choices, who actually looks forward to eating that everyday?
Clean eats do not have to be boring and this is one of the main reasons I’ve created this platform. #youactuallycanmakefriendswithsalad

I think it is so important to nourish ourselves at every meal, and actually love the food we decide to fuel ourselves with.

This hearty superfood salad does just the trick and takes next to nothing to whip up for your week ahead!

What You Need.
1 Sweet Potato
1 Bunch Broccolini
1 Red Onion
1 cup Corn fresh or canned
1 cup Peas fresh or canned
250g Black Rice
(microwavable pouch – local supermarkets should stock similar products // alternatively cook in rice cooker for 20 – 30 minutes)
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 generous handful of  Kale
1 generous handful of Spinach

To Top
Goji Berrries,
Pepita Seeds
Roasted Almonds

What You Do.
Preheat a medium frypan with a dollop of coconut oil
Grab your broccolini, sweet potato and onion,
Chop all three veggies into small cube like shapes, pop in the pan and cook up for roughly 10 – 15 minutes
In a large bowl, combine your spinach, kale and lemon juice.
Mix the leafy greens with the citrus juice as this in turn actually softens the kale and “cooks” it, making it easier for our digestion!
Place in the peas, corn and cooked black rice, stir through until evenly combined
One your fry pan veggies have cooked and cooled place them into your bowl and stir through
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Feel free to add any crunchy or sweet toppings to give your salad that extra kick!

The options are endless but a few suggestions include:
Walnuts
Cranberries
Feta
Almonds
Roasted Coconut
Buckinis
Sunflower Seeds

I would love to see your take on the above recipe! Let me know how you go, and what is your favourite lunch go to ?
