As we enter the cold months of the New Year, here’s a great recipe to keep the warm weather spirit alive. When I’m craving summer yumminess this is my go-to. This bowl is filled with a variety of nutrients from complex carbs, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. You can pair this with any protein of your choice – fish, chicken, steak! The beauty of this beyond the taste is that it goes with everything. Enjoy!
Ingredients (serving: 4):
- 1/2 Fresh Pineapple
- 1/2 Cup Unsalted Cashews
- 1 Medium Zucchini
- 1/2 Red Onion
- 2 Cups Cooked White Rice (or brown)
- 1/2 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger
- 1/2 Cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
- 2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Follow the rice directions that are given and make 2 cups cooked white or brown rice.
In a large pan, saute the onion and zucchini until cooked, 8-10 mins, with olive oil.
Cut your pineapple in half and carve out the inside of 1/2 a pineapple. This can get a little messy – warning! – my advice is to cut along the sides and then cut into squares. Use a spoon to scoop out the pineapple and chop into little squares.
Blend the rice, onion, zucchini, pineapples together and cook for a few minutes or until pineapple is slightly heated. Remove from the heat and blend together fresh ginger and cilantro.
Taste of summer is as simple as that! Enjoy!!
