First, prepare the rice. Our magic rice recipe contains 3 ingredients, a mixture of basmati rice (50%), buckwheat (25%), and millet (25%), but you can use rice only if you have that at home in your pantry. Measure a cup of rice and put it in a medium pan. Pour over a double amount of water (so 2 cups). Add salt to taste, and boiled the rice until the water evaporates. Then turn the heat off and let it rest for 20 mins under the lid until you prepare the curry.
Wash the vegetables, chop up the Pak Choi, and cut the cauliflower into small florets. Also, slice up the garlic, and you are ready to make the curry. Simply heat up the olive oil with the garlic in a large pan or wok. Add the cauliflowers, Pak Choi, and the peas and fry them for a few minutes over medium heat. Pour the coconut milk over the veggies and add all the other ingredients. You can start with a teaspoon of curry and taste it. See if you like it more intense and add more curry powder if needed. Simmer it until all the flavors are blended together and the vegetables are cooked to perfection.
Have a green apple for dessert.
Enjoy it, smile and glow!
