We start the 4th and last week of Blogging marathon for this month today. My theme for this week is "Calcium Rich Foods". Here's some information to know about Calcium intake. Calcium is the most vital mineral for strong bones. It is also essential for blood clotting, muscle contraction, and nerve function. If we don't take in enough calcium, our body uses the calcium reserves in our bones to supply the muscles, heart and nerves. So it's important that we take the required daily dosage of calcium -- milk and other dairy provide over 50% of dietary calcium, it is...

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 cup tofu
  • 1 cup Broccoli
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 carrot
  • to taste Salt Pepper
  • 0.25 cup Tahini
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 - 2 tbsp Sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • to taste Salt Pepper

Method

  1. Make Rice: I usually wash brown rice and soak it for about 8-10 hours (I soak it before I leave to work and cook when I get back). Heat 1tsp oil in a saucepan, add the yellow onion and carrots and saute until veggies are tender. Next add the chopped spinach and cook until wilted, about 3-5 minutes. Add the drained rice and saute for couple of minutes. Add 2 cups of water, salt and pepper; bring the mixture to a boil, lower the heat and simmer covered until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Set aside while you make the other components.
  2. Prepare Veggies: Heat 2tsp oil in a saute pan; add red onions and saute on medium flame until browned and slightly caramelized around the edges. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan.
  3. Clean the pan with a paper towel, add 1tsp more oil, add broccoli and mushrooms (if using) and cook until tender and slightly browned around the edges. Add diced tofu and cook until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Prepare the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk all the ingredients listed under the dressing until smooth. Taste and adjust accordingly. Add a splash of water if the dressing is too thick.
  5. Assemble: Take ½cup of rice in a serving bowl, mix in 1tbsp dressing; top with the onions, broccoli (and mushrooms) and tofu. Drizzle another tbsp of dressing over everything and ENJOY!!
