One of the best, most profound ways to heal our bodies is to walk in complete alignment with Gaia, mother Earth. This means aligning our actions with sacred love and responsibility.

So, when you make veggie dishes like this one, you are not just beautifying your physical vessel, but also helping our planet come in balance. As you may know, eating more vegetables is the recipe for your inner garden's well-being. But did you know that this simple, mindful act helps reduce your carbon footprint? Did you know it reduces world pollution as well as world hunger? And most of all, needless suffering of billions of animals? That's a LOT of goodness in just one meal!
So, keep on reading and preparing these recipes and not only are you taking better care of your body but also nurturing your spirituality and taking it to a much higher level by filling it with positive vibrations than ever before. So, lets get started.
1. Organic peas, organic carrots , organic corn, organic green beans - buy the frozen pre-made package if you can OR use each per taste.
2. Organic cabbage - 1/2 head or small one
3. Organic medium red onion - 2
4. Organic broccoli - cut in small pieces
5. Organic red bell pepper & organic green bell pepper - 1 each
6. Organic portabella mushrooms - 1 whole box
7. Organic tomatoes 4-5
8. Organic basmati rice (or jasmine or per choice) - 3/4th cup.
Spices and Oils -
1. Organic Himalayan sea salt - per taste
2. Cayenne - Add less first, adjust later. Start with 1/2 teaspoon if you don't know.
3. Orange marmalade/sweet orange sauce (1/2 teaspoon) - optional. If you have some left-over use it. Otherwise, no need.
4. Ginger - Garlic paste (1/2 teaspoon) or ginger/garlic cut in small pieces. 1-inch ginger and 5-6 garlic cloves or per taste.
5. Green chili - 1 in small pieces
6. Organic apple cider vinegar - 1 tablespoon FULL - no less here!!
7. Black pepper - per taste
8. Crushed red pepper - pinch
9. Organic ketchup - 1 tablespoon or per taste
10. Oils - Organic sesame oil (1 tablespoon) and organic coconut oil (3 tablespoon)
Top with -
1. Soy aminos and Melt organic coconut butter. Too good!!
Simple steps -
1. In steel pan, over medium-low heat, saute organic basmati or jasmine rice in coconut oil - 2 tablespoon. After 2-3 minutes, add water to cover the rice. Once the water comes to boil, then turn to low, cover & cook rice till soft and keep aside in a plate/bowl you will eat in later.
2. Add coconut oil and sesame oil now in steel pan. Add ginger/garlic and 1 green chili. Saute for 3-4 mins more. Add onions and tomatoes first and saute for 3 mins. Add all veggies and saute till soft.
3. Add salt, cayenne, crushed red pepper, black pepper - all pinch till you taste it per your taste, So like 1/2 teaspoon or less.
Now, you can add 1/2 teaspoon sweet orange sauce/marmalade.
4. Add rice back and mix all. After rice mix has cooled down a bit, then add 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar.
5. Top with 1 tablespoon each of soy aminos, ketchup and butter. Mix and taste test. If needing more salt, add pinch more and see. If more spicy, add more cayenne and mix. Taste test and see per your taste, If needing more sweet zing, add just a little more orange marmalade. Taste and adjust. If you want more tangy, add bit more of ketchup and see.
To reduce the quantity, all you have to do is reduce the rice quantity accordingly. I would suggest keeping the veggies quantity the same.
To increase more (if making for guests,etc) - Add more rice and add on more veggies/onions of your choice. Simple!
Single (Adult portion size) - This would serve approx. 3 servings.
2 people (Adult portion size) - approx. 2 serving each.
Family of 4 - 1 serving each.
For those with SUGAR issues:-
If you have sugar issues, you can still enjoy this recipe with 2 very simple, easy options!
1. REDUCE the quantity of rice and add some quinoa. So, you can do, say, 30% rice to 70% quinoa.
2. OR, you can eliminate rice completely - make the recipe as is, and mix in quinoa instead of rice.
And remember, to add some Ceylon cinnamon to your food when cooking AND when ready to eat.
Composting - Also, let's continue our theme of composting. Plz. collect all you veggie ends and compost. Its free organic fertilizer!
I love this light recipe and I and my DOGS enjoy it a lot. Yes, even I give to them so they can enjoy the various colors of nature and eat fresh, home-cooked, off the stove food to good health. My dogs love all kinds of veggies but broccoli is definitely one of their favorite..:) If you do have dogs, do share with them little bit.
