Organic 7 Colour Beans Brown Rice

My blood pressure is relatively high nowadays..
I don't feel well at times,
there will be headaches and dizziness..
I'm trying to lower it by cutting down on my sodium and fats intake
to see whether it helps.
I don't want to take any medication.
Once I start, it will be for a lifetime...
I'd rather control by my diet.

I came up with this recipe...
to make the rice tastier by just using beans.
So no seasonings needs to be added to the other dishes.
Just steam some fish or chicken and vegetables, and eat it plain.

There are 7 beans in there.
  • Adzuki Beans
  • Mung Beans
  • Black Beans
  • Green Split Peas
  • White Kidney Beans
  • Red Split Lentils 
  • Yellow Split Lentils
I'm sure it's full of nutrients!

    Our nutritious rice for dinner..

    it's a whole new experience,
    there's a hint of sweetness in every bite.

    Even Piano is waiting for her share!
    She whines without fail whenever she's waiting for her meal to be served...!

    1. Cook the soaked beans in a thermal cooker or pot with water until tender, but not mushy. 
    2. Combine soaked brown rice with cooked beans and 2 cups of water which the beans were cooked in.
