This is a simple and perfect one-pot dish that not only minimizes preparation and cooking time needed for several dishes but also delivers a triangular balanced diet required in a meal.



The flavoured rice and quinoa matches well with any of your favorite cooked meat and fresh veggies. Therefore, customization of ingredients and portion is very easy and is always up to our preference and taste.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes
Makes: 2-4 servings

Ingredients

Rice & quinoa mix
1 cup white rice
3/4 cup brown rice
1/4 cup quinoa
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp vegetable powder (no MSG & artificial flavour)
1 tsp himalayan/sea salt
1 tsp grated parmesan cheese
5 cups water

Meat
1 cup leftover baked beef strips

Veggies
1 cup celery strips
1 cup mixed halved cherry tomatoes
1 cup brussels sprouts, stem trimmed, halved

extra 1 tsp salt to soak the brussels sprouts
some extra sea salt
some extra pepper ground
some extra grated parmesan cheese


Method

Roughly separate the halved brussels sprouts. Soak in cool water with 1 tsp salt added for half an hour to remove some bitterness.

Mix white rice, brown rice and quinoa. Rinse with water and drain.

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil on a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, saute for a minute.

Pour drained rice mix into the pan, add 2 tbsp vegetable powder, 1 tsp sea salt and 1 tsp grated parmesan cheese. Stir thoroughly.



Reduce to low heat. Smooth the surface. Distribute beef strips (or whatever meat strips you like) evenly. Gradually pour 3 cups water into the pan.

Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. The rice can absorb most flavour in this cooking.



Lift the lid. Distribute celery strips and brussels sprouts (or your favourite veggies) evenly on the rice. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Then gradually pour into 2 cups water.



Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes.



Lift the lid. Distribute tomatoes.



Meanwhile, check the rice, it should be cooked through. If not, add a little bit water at a time, simmer until the rice is just tender and most water is evaporated.

If you like to have a thin based rice crust , simmer for a bit longer.

Sprinkle with some salt, pepper and grated cheese(optional).

Serve immediately as it is and divide among serving plates.
