The Yums: Sunshine Rice!

splash of olive oil
2 Cups cooked brown rice
1/2 Cup yellow onion, chopped
2 Cups cauliflower
1 orange bell pepper (or red)
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
2 tsp curry powder
*1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 Cup fresh parsley, chopped
juice of 1 meyer lemon
1 (15 oz can) garbanzo beans
1 TBSP ghee
sea salt to taste

Cook rice (in rice cooker) and set aside. Sautee onions in olive oil. Add cauliflower and enough water to steam while covered. When cauliflower is tender, add bell pepper, tomatoes, curry, turmeric, cumin, parsley & lemon juice. Mix well and let cook on med-high until a gentle boil is reached. Add rice and ghee (stir until ghee covers rice) and let simmer about 3 minutes. Top off with garbanzos and let simmer another 3-5 minutes. Salt to taste and enjoy!

This would be simply divine with the addition of pineapple or craisins (Sweet Sunshine Rice, perhaps?). Cashews, too! Yum.

*Personally, I prefer more turmeric - but I had just 1/4 tsp left in my spice cabinet! For shame. Next time I will most definitely use about 1/2 tsp.
