This recipe was inspired by an episode of The Dr Gundry Podcast. Dr Steven Gundry is the author of the Plant Paradox Diet that focuses on reducing intake of lectins (a type of protein found in some plants that can be bad for your health, such as gluten). In this episode, Dr Gundry refers to basmati rice as one of the better grains to consume, and when cooked with coconut oil and then cooled down and reheated, it will change the bad resistant starch (R2) into good resistant starch (R3). R2 starch is what the bad bacteria in your gut like to feed on, whereas R3 starch is what the good bacteria in your gut like to feed on.
UTENSIL YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 rice cooker (or pressure cooker to remove lectins in broad beans)
INGREDIENTS FOR TWO SERVINGS:
- 1 ½ cups of brewed white tea (leaves removed)
- 1 cup of Indian basmati rice
- 1 cup of frozen green broad beans
- 1 teaspoon of dried dill
- 1 pinch of dried mint
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- salt to taste
1. Defrost broad beans and take the skins off.
2. Place all ingredients in rice cooker, stir and cook.
3. Once cooked through, allow to cool down and put in the fridge for a few hours, then reheat in the rice cooker when ready to eat.
