*Note: the rice and yumm sauce will be more than a portion for 2 people. Nutrition is listed as two meals or a portion for 4 servings.

Fluffy Brown Rice

Rinse rice very well under cold water. Shake to remove any excess water. Transfer the rice to a pot and add 2 cups of water. I like to add just a little less than 2 cups.


Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to low heat. Cook for 40 minutes then turn off heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before removing the lid.

Yumm Sauce

Add all the ingredients, except chickpea juice, to a blender or food processor. Add half the chickpea juice and pulse. Add more chickpea juice until you reach a smooth sauce like consistency.

Rice Bowls

Assemble ingredients over rice and top with yumm sauce.
