Vegan Rajmah with Green Tea-Germinated Brown Rice

Dark red kidney beans in a curry of fresh ginger, onions, garlic, tomatoes and chilies with toasted cumin and coriander, turmeric and cilantro, served over a bed of green tea-germinated brown rice..

Germinated brown rice is approximately 10-20 times higher in protein and amino acids (including GABA) than white rice.  Soaking the rice in freshly-brewed green tea adds a pleasing flavor and increases the medicinal value.  It also helps to prevent the rice from spoiling during its 18-24 hour germination period.

    • Look for organic brown rice, as fresh as possible (stores often store bags of rice far tool long). If all else fails, you can buy Lundberg Organic Sprouted Short Grain Brown Rice on Amazon.

      Good luck!
