Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown rice (150g)

  • 1 Tbsp white sesame seeds

  • 2 heads bok choy, halved
  • handful fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tsp pumpkin seeds, chopped

Instructions

  1. Add the rice, 4 cups water and salt to a pot and bring to a boil.

  2. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat and cover the pot until rice is tender (about 20 minutes).

  4. Place the coated chicken thighs into a cold, deep, heavy-based saucepan.

  5. Place the pan onto a medium heat and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the maple and soy coating has thickened to a glossy glaze. Sprinkle with white sesame seeds.

  6. Next, heat the black sesame seeds and coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat.

  7. Add the bok choy and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the leaves have wilted.

  8. When the rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork. Then mix the sesame oil and coriander into the rice. Sprinkle chopped pumpkin seeds on top

  9. To serve, spoon the rice onto serving plates and top with the chicken. Place the bok choy alongside.

Tip of the Day

Fermented foods can help balance your gut microbiome–those microorganisms living in the gut. While many of the good bacteria from fermented foods might be killed by stomach acid, fermented foods can still provide health benefits from their byproducts including B vitamins, organic acids, and functional peptides. These help keep your immune system strong and your body happy.
