Thanks to all the flavours it tastes like there is a lot more going on in this dish then there really as there are so few ingredients (spices, vegetable stock, brown rice, peas and pumpkin seeds). The brown rice makes this a filling meal, although it doesn’t feel like the heartiest dish as you’re only getting the goodness from the peas and the pumpkinseeds, it would be good if there was more vegetables so you can get the maximum amount of nutrition out of your meal. This dish is definitely tasty and satisfying but not on the level that Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipes are. This recipe is from Carol Vorderman’s “Detox for Life”, is suitable for vegans and is sugar, gluten, wheat and nasty ingredient free.
