Serves: 4-6


  • 2 c low-sodium veggie stock
  • 1 T butter (no margarine)

  • ¼ chopped leeks or scallions
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 2 T freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 T fresh ginger, minced

In separate saucepan, combine stock, butter and salt. When boiling, stir in rice and cover. Turn temperature to low, simmer 25-30 minutes. Heat oil in small skillet, then add carrots. Cook 1-2 minutes, then add leeks or scallions, garlic and ginger. Saute for 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner.

When rice is cooked, stir in carrot, leeks or scallions mixture, soy sauce, lime juice and coriander.

NOTE: To help with managing psoriasis symptoms, this recipe cut the coriander by one-half.
