In an attempt to eat more vegetables and less rice, I have begun to add so many vegetables to rice that the vegetable to rice ratio is 5:1 — sometimes higher. The rice almost becomes a binder to the rest of the ingredients.
Cabbage may be a humble brassica, but it is packed with plenty of essential phytonutrients and makes a great low-calorie addition to the pilaf. Enjoy it on its own warm or at room temperature with a squeeze of lime juice or a dollop of plain yogurt on top.
