Hippie Rice!

I love this recipe! It is so adaptable to whatever you have on hand. And when my husband went back for a third helping stating how good he thought it was, I knew it was a winner I had to share!

This recipe has been adapted from one of my personal fav's: The Food Matters Cookbook. Feel free to use what you have in the fridge to make this your own too!
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 1 cup any long-grain brown rice salt
  • 1 lb broccoli, cored and roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • ⅓ cup raisins
  • 1 lb cubed pressed tofu extra-firm
  • ½ tsp red chile flakes, or to taste
  • lemon wedges
Instructions
  1. Put rice in pan and add water to cover by 1 inch.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and bring to boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Adjust so mixture bubbles gently.
  4. Cover and cook until most of water is absorbed and rice is just getting tender, 20-30 mins.
  5. Pack the broccoli and tofu into the pan on top of the rice- don't stir; just leave it on top, and add a little more liquid if water is evaporating too quickly.
  6. Replace lid and continue cooking, adding a small amount of water if pan boils dry, until rice and broccoli are both tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Transfer rice and broccoli to bowl with sunflower seeds and raisins then toss with oil and red chile flakes.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed, serve warm or at room temperature, squeezing lemon wedges over top.
  9. * I also added red onion, zucchini, half of a leftover sweet potato, and a sprinkle of feta cheese.
Make your recipes work for left overs and nights when you know you are getting home late. Thinking ahead plays a huge role in long-term success!
