Brown rice has a delicious nutty flavour and is a much better carb choice as it has a slower release of energy and contains fibre. Although it cooks longer, it is well worth the wait – especially with this lemony flavour.

1. Peel off 4 strips of lemon rind with a vegetable peeler, take care not to peel any white pith with it.
2. Squeeze out lemon juice and add with the rind, rice and salt to a pot with about 2½ cups (625 ml) water.
3. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer with a lid for 20-25 minutes or until cooked. Drain well. Stir in the parsley and serve immediately.
Serve a stew, mince dish or casserole on this rice instead of plain white rice. It is also great with a portion of fish or chicken. Another starch is not necessary, so fill your plate with non-starchy, low-carb vegetables or a salad.

Tips:
1. Allow the rice to cool down completely and use as a base for a rice salad. Add any salad ingredients of your choice or add cooked chicken or lentils to make this a light meal.
2. Add peas or spinach to the rice or sprinkle toasted sunflower seeds over before serving.
