1 pouch of Grain Trust Organic Brown Rice

1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

2 cup zuchinni, chopped

1 cup frozen green peas

6 oz. tempeh

Tahini Pesto

6 tbsp tahini

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 cup basil leaves

1/4 cup parley leaves

1/2 tsp salt

1 juice of a lemon

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/3 cup water

pepper to taste


1Add the tahini, garlic, basil, parsley, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast to a food processor. Pulse about 10 times until you have a chunky paste. Add the water and blend for a couple of seconds until a thick paste forms (it's fine if some of the herbs are visible). Taste and adjust with lemon, salt and pepper.

2Cook Grain Trust Brown Rice according to package instructions; about 1minute before the end of cooking, add the zucchini, pan fried tempeh and peas to the pot.

3Meanwhile, add the tempeh cubes to a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil. Pan fry on high heat on both sides until the tempeh has a light brown color

4Transfer the rice, tempeh and vegetables to a large mixing bowl and add the halved grape tomatoes. Add the pesto and mix everything well to combine. Serve.
