It’s a simple and healthy meal recipe with brown rice, french beans and fenugreek leaves which is high is proteins and low in calories. Brown rice is unmilled or partly milled rice, is a kind of whole, natural grain. It has a mild nutty flavor, and is chewier and more nutritious than white rice. Being a white rice lover, the thought of trying brown rice seemed difficult. But to my surprise it was not at all bad. I guess now brown rice is going to be regular on my menu:)
The french beans and fenugreek leaves as we all know are calcium rich. I guess going green and being healthy is totally on my mind:)
