RECIPE: Brown Rice Bowl with Banana, Walnuts and Coconut

Brown Rice Bowl with Banana, Walnuts and Coconut


-  1/2 c. brown rice
-  1 medium banana
-  2 T. chopped walnuts
-  2 T. unsweetened coconut (I got mine from Whole Foods' bulk section)
-  1 T. pure maple syrup (kind of expensive but it will last forever!)
-  Salt, to taste


-  Pretty easy--just cook up some brown rice in your favorite rice cooker or, if you have leftovers on hand, go ahead and pop that in the microwave with a little bit of water for 1.5 to 2 minutes, depending on your microwave.  
*You can, of course, use white rice or oats, if you'd prefer, but I like the chewy, heartiness of brown rice and I think it works really well in this recipe.
-  Slice banana to desirable thicknesses.
-  Toss in walnuts and coconut (you can toast it if you've got extra time and really feeling crazy).  
-  Drizzle on maple syrup.  
-  Salt.
-  Mix.
-  Enjoy!
