This rice-based recipe is full of vitamins that can help boost your immune system. It only takes 15 minutes to prepare and is the perfect vegetarian recipe for lunches or for a quick dinner.
Using wholegrain rice, instead of white rice, means we’re consuming a slow-acting carbohydrate, so energy is released slowly and steadily into the bloodstream once you have eaten it; helping us to feel fuller for longer.
The green vegetables and herbs are also full of vitamins that help convert food into energy. The spinach for example contains iron, vitamin c, folate and calcium.
Vitamin C - helps protect cells, maintain healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage.
Iron - required by the body to create the part of the red blood cell that carries the oxygen around the body.
