Prepare and cook the rice: In the sink, place the rice in a strainer and rinse it well.  In a pot, add the brown rice blendwater (1 1/2 cup, 3 cups, 4 1/2 cups), salt (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 3/4 tsp) and pepper (1 pinch, 1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp) and stir. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Add the lemon chickpeas to the cooked rice. Cover, remove the pot from the heat and set aside. 


Cut the Bok Choy: Wash and rinse all produce*. Cut the bok choy in half lenght wise, then cut each half in 3 segments length-wise. Ensure to have a piece of the core on each segment so the bok choy pieces don’t fall apart*. 

Note: If cooking for kids, it is recommended to remove the core so the bok choy pieces are smaller.

*You can wash produce by rincing them in water with a bit of lemon juice. 


Cook the vegetables: While the rice is cooking,  add 2 tbsp to 1/4 cup of water in a pan. Turn the heat on high and add the broccoli. Cover and steam about 4 minutes. Add the bok choy, cover and cook an additional 1 minute.


Prepare the garnish & Assemble: Cut the sun dried tomatoes in small 1/2 cm. In individual bowls place the rice, lemon chickpeas, cooked bok choy and broccoli. Dress with green goddess sauce and garnish with pickled ginger, sun dried tomatoes and sunflower seeds
