Meatless Monday: Curried rice and beans with mushrooms



The amino acids in the rice and beans together make a complete protein.  The spices help balance any excess kapha as we go into spring (See http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/ayurveda-and-spring.html)

Serves 2 

You will need
1 tbsp organic olive oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp brown mustard seeds
150g organic brown rice, rinsed
stock made from 2tsp organic reduced salt boullion in 500ml hot water
150g organic brown mushrooms, chopped
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
1 carton organic cannellini beans
200ml organic coconut milk (optional)

Fry the onion in the olive oil for 1 minute.  Add the mustard seeds and fry for a further minute.   
Add the rice, stock, turmeric and garam masala and bring to the boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.  
Add the mushrooms and simmer for another 5 minutes.  Stir in the coconut milk (if using) and beans. Heat through.
Serve.

Enjoy
