You can make this recipe with any wholegrain that you have to hand in your pantry, such as brown rice, quinoa, bulghur wheat, etc. However, I love the stunning colour of the black rice with the dark green kale and red grapes. It’s a very pretty side dish! It marries well with a simple piece of steamed fish, or try it with my Cashew and Corn Soup with Broccoli Almond Purée.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 litre vegetable stock
380g black rice
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
120ml apple cider vinegar
2 large handfuls kale, roughly chopped and stems removed
200g red seedless grapes, halved
55g sunflower seeds
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Bring the vegetable stock to the boil, then add the black rice. Reduce the heat to low, then cover and simmer for 45–60 minutes until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Fry for 5–7 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the cumin, paprika, turmeric and apple cider vinegar to the onions and garlic, combine and stir for 1–2 minutes. Add the kale and stir through. Once the kale is soft and the liquid has been absorbed, remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Mix the mushroom and kale mixture with the cooked rice, grapes and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, toss well and serve.

Note

  • Red grapes are full of Vitamin K, which is a fat-soluble vitamin stored in our body’s fat tissue and liver. It plays a key role in blood clotting.
