Free Healthy Recipe - Black rice, asparagus and salmon salad

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

This is one of my favourite recipes from The Greengrocer's Diet. It may sound a bit complicated to make for lunch but the recipe makes enough for three serves and it will last for a couple of days in the fridge.
Those who don't need to lose weight, who are not cutting carbs at night can enjoy it for dinner.

1 brown onion diced
½ cup black rice, rinsed
1 cup chicken stock, I use The Stock Merchant brand
1 bunch broccolini, trimmed
6 asparagus spears trimmed
150 grams hot smoked salmon, I use Huon hot smoked salmon fillets
1 lime juice and zest
1 small handful coriander leaves
10 almonds dry roasted and roughly chopped

Heat the olive oil in a wide-based saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 2 minutes.

Rinse and drain the rice. Add to pan with onions. Pour in stock. Bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan with a lid and cook for 35 minutes.

While the rice is cooking, steam the broccolini and asparagus for about 3 minutes, then plunge the vegetables into a cold-water bath. This helps them retain their vibrant colour.

Fold salmon, lime juice and zest, coriander and almonds through the cooked rice and season with cracked black pepper. Top with broccolini and asparagus. Serve hot or cold.
