Today i decided i would work on my summer body. TIME IS RUNNING OUT! This means a lot of greens and brown rice. Less wheat and dairy, here i come.

I adapted this recipe from Nigel Slater’s The Kitchen Diaries:


– cooked short grain brown rice
– a handful of broccolini
– a couple mushrooms, chopped
– a thumb sized knob of ginger, sliced into thin matchsticks
– 2 garlic cloves roughly chopped
– 1 spring onion thinly sliced, dark green parts included
– a couple glugs of oyster sauce
– grapeseed oil
– salt and pep


Wash and then trim the bottoms of the broccolini. Boil a small pot of water and steam broccolini in a bamboo steamer for approx 8 minutes, or until cooked but still with a bit of crunch. Meanwhile heat up oil and saute garlic and ginger until soft, add mushrooms and spring onion. Cook for 2-3 minutes and add oyster sauce. Coat the mushroom mixture well by stirring and let it bubble away for a short while. When the broccolini is done to your taste, pile it on top of the rice and top it off with the mushroom mixture.
