My advent with brown rice landed me to this recipe. The first time I made it I was sceptical and knew it was a disaster, but alas ! it was awesome and since then have made it couple of times. Brown rice with beet and sprouts, tasty one pot meal , serve it with any yoghurt based salad.
The benefits of beetroot can be read here.
To make sprouts : Soak the green moong for eight hours. Drain them into a colander. After some time, tie them in a thin muslin cloth and keep it in a warm place overnight.
Sprouts are packed with nutrition. You can use them in various ways. Toss them into a salad to make a tasty snack or make a stir fry.
