Basic Brown Rice

Serves 4

Brown rice is a nutritious whole grain that delivers fiber, protein and selenium. It is not another type of rice; it's the same as white rice without all the good stuff removed in processing.

Oven Roasted Tofu

Serves 4

Soya has been given a bad rap lately but like all foods eaten in moderation from a non-genetically modified source it is a great source of vegetarian protein. I recommend that one eats only about 100g twice a week maximum. Tofu is very versatile when one knows how to use it. Tofu will take on the flavours you give it so marinating tofu for a couple of hours before cooking it often results in a tasty dish.

Slow roasting tofu makes it delightfully rich and sweet in flavour and gives [...]
