This is a very simple and healthy recipe. It has a lot of fiber, proteins, vitamins and all the other good stuff. This pilaf can be eaten with any raita or curry instead of normal rice/pulav.
Heat a pan and add 1 tsp olive oil. Add 2 tsp chopped garlic and saute for a minute. Add 1 cup frozen spinach to it and keep stirring. When it is soft, add crushed black pepper and 1 cup of brown rice.
Add 2 cups of water/chicken/veg stock and stir. Add salt to taste. Cover and cook for 25 -30 mins (or as per instructions on the brown rice packet - brown rice takes longer to cook than normal rice). Open the lid 5 mins after you turn off the gas. Fluff it with a fork. Garnish it with dried cranberries and boiled egg (optional - but tastes yummy if you add it).
