Lunch Inspiration

Lunch inspiration: Herbed wild rice pilaf.

Craving a simple recipe for your lunch boxes? Or simply to enjoy it over a weekend? This is a beautiful dish for your homemade gourmet lunches. It is so simple to make and really healthy. It is high fiber. It is rich in vitamins and folate. It is super tasty. It is good on your tummy too. I call this pilaf because it tastes exactly like that.

So, here are the ingredients.

  • 1/2 cup of wild/black rice
  • 1 cup cubed carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander or cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint leaves


  • Add 2 cups of water to a skillet or saucepan or wok (whichever you may have), bring it to boil.
  • Add the rice to it. Let the rice boil for 5 minutes
  • After 5 minutes, add the carrots, onions, tomatoes to the pan. Let it boil for 10 minutes.
  • Then, add a bit of the chopped coriander and all of the mint leaves. Let the mix boil until the rice is fully cooked (wild rice can take a bit more time). Once the rice is fluffy leave the rice to set.
  • Add the rest of coriander and mint to the cooked pilaf. Serve it, eat it and enjoy it!
