My broccoli, brown rice and sun-dried tomato salad is the perfect re-vamp on a typical salad. The brown rice will keep you fuller for longer and the broccoli is backed full of dietary fibre and vitamins. Adding the pomegranate seeds gives a burst of fruity flavour and the sun-dried tomatoes are full of antioxidants that will help your skin glow beautifully. I like to serve this salad with some grilled chicken or fish.
Rinse the brown rice, and cook as per pack instructions.
Cut the broccoli into florets and steam for 4 minutes until just cooked through.
Toast the sunflower seeds in a pan for 2 minutes until golden, be careful not to burn them, then leave to the side to cool.
Once the brown rice is done mix with the broccoli, sundried tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, parsley, and sunflower seeds. Season with salt, pepper and stir through the lemon juice and olive oil.
