Vegan Low-FODMAP Green Tea Goddess Risotto
Prep time: 5 minutes / Cook time: 30 minutes / Serves: 4
LOW-FODMAP, ONE POT, VEGAN, QUICK-PREP
- 5 cups water
- 6 green tea bags
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon Casa de Sante Low-FODMAP Certified Vegetable Stock Powder **
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1½ cups sushi rice
- 1 cup fresh parsley
- ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions (green parts only)
- 3 cups fresh arugula, divided
- ¼ cup pine nuts
- ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1½ cups shelled edamame
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
***If Casa de Sante Vegetable Stock Powder is sold out you can also use FODY Foods Vegetable Soup Base.
- Put the water and green tea in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cover with a lid. Bring to a boil, turn off the heat, and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, setting 3 aside.
- Stir in the sesame oil, stock powder, ginger, and rice and bring the tea mixture back to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and let simmer gently for 18 to 22 minutes, until the grains are tender and creamy. When fully cooked, the rice should be neither dry nor soupy.
- Meanwhile, put the parsley, scallions, and 2 cups of arugula in a food processor. Open the reserved tea bags, add the green tea leaves, and pulse. Add the pine nuts and slowly drizzle the lemon juice while pulsing, until the mixture is coarsely ground like pesto.
- Fold the herb mixture into the risotto along with the edamame and salt. Stir until thoroughly incorporated.
- Divide equally between 4 bowls, top each with the remaining 1 cup of arugula, and serve.
Storage tip: Store leftover risotto in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Reheat the risotto in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat along with an additional splash of water. Stir periodically until hot all the way through, about 4 to 6 minutes.
