Jan 5, 2017 | Main Meals | 0 comments

Black rice is a fertility superfood because it can improve circulation, reduce inflammation and it’s jam packed with antioxidants. The avocado in this dish provides healthy fat and vitamin E whilst the mango provides fibre and iron. Serve with lean meat of white fish for a perfectly balanced fertility boosting meal.

Ingredients:

  • 300g cooked black rice
  • 1 fresh mango, diced into small chunks
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 small ripe avocado, diced
  • Sea salt
  • 30g flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 30g watercress

*for the dressing

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1⁄4 cup orange juice
  • Sea salt & pepper

Method:

  1. Cook the rice as per the packet instructions until it is tender. Remove from the heat and let it cool.
  2. Meanwhile make the dressing by combining mango, vinegar, olive oil and orange juice in blender and blending until smooth.
  3. Add the avocado, onion, mango chunks, parsley and watercress to the black rice, then drizzle over the dressing – not too much as it will be sweet.
