Spoonful Broccoli Slaw Rice

It’s not every day that an idea for a recipe pops in your head. I have been eating broccoli slaw for a couple of years but I usually stir fry it and enjoy having it as a side dish. However on this occasion I was in the mood for some steaming white rice with butter and for some unknown reason the broccoli slaw popped in my head.

Not wanting to have it as a side dish, I thought… what if I lightly stir fry it and then mix it into some jasmine rice. What’s the worst that could happen? Nothing! I was going to be the only one eating it and if it’s an epic failure then that would be the end of it. Drum roll !!! That was how I came up with this seriously delicious Broccoli Slaw Rice. It was fresh, bright and appealing to the eyes.

My senses became alive at the sight of the dish and I know most will agree that we usually eat with our eyes first. Then we follow with our smell and finally our taste. This beautiful broccoli slaw rice made my mouth water and it tasted great. One spoon was not enough and that evening I wish I had someone t share that meal with. It was then I knew I had to share it with everyone.

Tips for successful Broccoli Slaw Rice

The white rice can also be substituted for brown jasmine rice. I normally keep a small bag at home which I have found inexpensively at Trader Joe.

Use two parts vegetable to one part rice as too much rice will overwhelm the vegetables.

Rice needs to be fluffy not sticky

The spring onion with the butter and salt gives the rice a great flavor.

Don’t overcook the broccoli slaw as the beauty of the dish will be lost

I had it with curry chicken and the sauce from the curry complimented it extremely well. If you wanted to eat it on its own I would pair it with a sauce. Stay tuned for that as I am working on something that would appeal to vegetarians.

    Beautiful, Will add to my scrambled eggs as I have been increasing my intake of vegetables. Where best to begin but breakfast.. I love the colors. Thank you your ideas rock. Since beginning the journey of incorporating more vegetables especially at the start of the day. My body feels different and my appetite more controlled. Up top. Keep it coming.
