Whole grains are excellent sources of dietary fibre, which not only keeps the bowels healthy, but provides a great food source for the gut microbiota. Black rice is rich in the antioxidant group called polyphenols, which help nourish and restore the microbiota.
This flavoursome salad can be served as a meal on its own; the pine nuts combine with the grains to make a great serve of protein, and there’s two serves of vegetables including green leafy vegetables (basil).
