These days, I try to reduce the consumption of meat, especially red meat and instead, increase our intake of vegetables. I dish up a veggie dish everyday. On busy days when I do not have the time to cook our vegetables, I serve everyone raw veggies – cucumbers, tomatoes, capsicums, carrots, celery and salad leaves. I buy organic vegetables most of the time. Steamed sweet corns, Edamame beans and sweet potatoes are our favorites too.
Today I whipped these up for dinner:
Meatless fried rice with sides of kimchi and organic orange cherry tomatoes. I used low GI Basmati rice.
Chicken bones and anchovies soup with lots of carrots, organic tomatoes, organic siew pak choy and fish balls. Fish balls are an occasional sinful treat.
My meatless fried rice composed of sweet corn kernels, scallions, 4 eggs, julienned carrots, garlic, pepper, organic soy sauce and overnight Basmati rice (cooked with pandan leaves, lemon grass and ginger).
My meatless fried rice would have tasted even yummier had I added one whole big onion but I was tied down with work today and didn’t have ample time to prep the onions. Last week, I cooked another style of meatless fried rice which composed of Bombay onions, chopped garlic, scallions and the kids loved it. I discovered that the secret to aromatic and yummy fried rice is to add lots and lots of onions. Onions are naturally sweet and full of flavors.
For those of you trying to cut down on the consumption of meat for better health, do give this meatless fried low GI rice a try. It’s seriously yummy and easy to prepare.
