As a Filipino, the craving for a bowl of comforting rice will pop up every now and then. It’s probably genetic! However I’m always looking for better alternatives to our plain old white kanin. Brown rice is probably one of the quickest and easiest switches you can make for a healthier diet. It’s full of fiber that helps keep you full longer. It’s also rich in selenium that helps draw out heavy metals and toxins and contains almost 80% of our daily needs in manganese  which is needed to help metabolize fats and benefits our nervous systems. Brown Rice is a great baby food and I would suggest even making your kids get used to brown rice instead of white. It’s extremely important to choose good quality and preferably organic brown rice as because the rice is whole with the husk, poor quality can have lots of pesticides. I super love Jordan Farms as they have a great selection of specialty rice thats easily available in the supermarket!

This recipe is a delicious combination of brown rice with iron rich spinach and anti-inflammatory zuchinni as well as cancer fighting wonder root turmeric. It makes a really great side dish for anything and even great on its own.

Black Rice Poké Bowl

One of the hottest crazes in the food scene is the Hawaiian favorite – the Poké Bowl. Usually made with sushi rice and very rich and heavy sauces, I wanted to give it a healthier spin by making it with antioxidant and fiber rich black rice. I love the texture of black rice too because its so nice and nutty. I like that extra bite and chew it has and I feel it lends a nice texture to all the creamy elements of a traditional poké bowl. It has a lower glycemic index than usual white rice and also has 8.5 grams of protein in 100g which keeps you satiated much longer. Black Rice is one of my favorite varieties of rice and it works really well in sinangag and stir fries! In this poké version, I also made a lighter dressing without the usual Japanese mayo but it also works really well if you want to add a touch of that too!


1 cup cooked Jordan Farms Black Rice

1/2 avocado diced

100 g sashimi grade salmon fillet cut into cubes

1/4 cup shredded red cabbage


1 tsp miso paste

1 tsp agave syrup

2 tbsp canola oil

1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 tsp sesame oil


drizzle Balsamic Glaze / Syrup


Sesame Seeds

Pickled Ginger


Spring Onions


Japanese mayo – optional

Sriracha – optional


In a bowl, place the cooked and cooled rice and top with the ingredients. In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing. You may choose to adjust the quantities to suit your desired flavor. Pour dressing on top. Garnish as desired.
