A Bowl of Sunshine

A couple of weeks ago we had a few of centimetres of snow, not much, but it hung around long enough for our wee man to experience making his first snow person, taste and fling a few handfuls towards his sisters.

Of course any play in the snow creates mega appetites so we were all very glad to come back inside for this Bowl of Sunshine.

  • Sunshine Rice Bowl
  • 2 to 3 orange sweet potatoes or kumara, peeled
  • ½ a small cauliflower, broken into florets
  • coconut oil or other vegetable oil
  • 3 cups of cooked brown rice
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 2 stalks of celery, sliced
  • ½ cup of dried currants
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of tamari
  • ½ cup of roasted pistachios, chopped
  • fresh coriander / cilantro or parsley as desired
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (360°F)
  2. Chop the sweet potato into pieces roughly the same size as the cauliflower florets and place into a large shallow baking dish. Dollop a few teaspoonfuls of coconut oil on top and roast in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until they've gained some colour and cooked through to your liking.
  3. Meanwhile add some more coconut to a large frypan and sauté the onion and celery until soft.
  4. Add the brown rice and stir well until heated through.
  5. Mix in the currants and tamari to taste and set aside to keep warm until the sweet potato and cauliflower are cooked.
  6. To serve - place spoonfuls of the Sunshine rice mixture into deep serving bowls, top with the roasted vegetables and sprinkle generously with the pistachios and herbs.
  7. Serves 4 to 6
