Chef's Quick Tip: Vegetable rice bowl

Chef Justin, from the 'Port Restaurant in Westport, shares how to make one of his best-selling and nutritious dishes: vegetable rice bowl.

Recipe:

The ratio of rice and vegetable mix can be changed on your preference.

You can use any pre-cut vegetable mix such as a slaw mix.

Otherwise, cabbage, zucchini, beets, carrot, bell peppers, squash, broccoli, all work nicely.

1. In a medium sized sauté pan add the blended oil and sweat the Garlic and Ginger to soften and make fragrant. Roughly 1 min.

2. Add the Vegetable mix sautéing to soften the vegetables. After about 2 min add the rice and the coconut curry sauce. Let simmer and reduce for about 4 min. The rice will absorb some of the extra sauce. Check seasoning.

3. Serve hot and with garnish. Some ideas are lime wedge, cilantro, crispy won tons, bean sprouts, sesame seeds.
