Healthy Tricolour Adzuki Bean Rice
This is copied and modified from
http://www.knowingfood.com/redrice.html, it is one of the simplest
savoury dishes with adzuki bean. A colourful mix of red (adzuki bean),
green (pea), white (barley) and brown (brown rice); it has all the
goodness of whole grain food and fibre. Imagine having it with your
favourite stir fry or curry. It would be a good diet balance even if
you are up for a slightly high fat meat dish.
30g adzuki bean
50g barley grain
10g green peas
1 cup of brown rice
4 cups of water
Rinse both barley and brown rice, and soak for about 1 hour.
Rinse adzuki bean.
Mix all ingredient and bring to a boil, then bring it down to low
Simmer till water is almost absorbed, turn off the heat.
Fluff the rice immediately and cover it to simmer for another 20 to
Fluff the rice again while it is still hot, before serving.
1. If you still prefer to use white rice, do not soak the rice prior
cooking. White rice has been processed so it needs no soaking.
2. For those who like a little flavour, you can add in some vegetable
stock or chicken stock while cooking. But if you are to use fresh stock
in liquid form, remember to make sure the total water amount is still
the same. For example, if there is 1 cup of liquid stock, reduce 1 cup
