The Fountain of Youth?

April 19, 2012

Apparently, the fountain of youth flows not with water, but with brown rice vinegar. This little guy is full of amino and organic acids which, simply put, slow the aging process. (For the complicated explanation, click here) It also aids in digestion, and calcium absorption. This is very important, especially for females in the aging process. It’s also great for your heart, preventing the buildup of bad cholesterol, increasing the “good” cholesterol, and lowering your blood pressure. Not bad for a bottle of vinegar!

I set out to find the best uses for brown rice vinegar, since I’m not sure it’s as nice for chugging as apple cider vinegar. It is a key ingredient in most of the sushi recipes I found, and makes a great salad dressing. I found one recipe, however, for Sesame Brown Rice and Cabbage that I thought was worth Better Bulk-ifying and sharing. Here it is:





2 Tbsp Omega Nutrition Coconut Oil

1 cup organic cabbage, coarsely chopped (approx. ¼ head)

2 Tbsp fresh organic ginger, peeled and minced

1 organic garlic clove, minced

1 cup organic brown rice

1 tsp Fleur de Sel coarse sea salt

1 ½ cups water

2 tsp Eden Organic Brown Rice Vinegar

1 Tbsp sesame seeds

Heat oil in 4 quart saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over medium. Add cabbage, ginger, and garlic; cook (uncovered) stirring often, until cabbage is wilted (approx. 2-3 minutes). Spoon cabbage mixture onto a plate.

Add rice to the pan. Stir to coat with oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted (about 1 minute). Add salt and water, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 30 mins. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork, then add cabbage mixture, vinegar, and sesame seeds, and toss to combine.
