  • Preparation and cooking time
    • Cook:
  • Easy
  • Serves 1
Great for refuelling and rebuilding as a post-workout supper. You can change up the flavours by adding herbs, spices and seasoning as you desire. Also, the addition of superfoods, such as chia and/or flax can give it a little extra boost if you wish.


  • 65g brown rice
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4 small button mushrooms


  • STEP 1
    Cook rice in a microwavable bowl for around 20 minutes, checking water levels regularly.
  • STEP 2
    Meanwhile, slice the banana and mushroom (can then be cooked if desired).
  • STEP 3
    Immediately on removing the cooked rice from the microwave, add in the mushrooms and banana and mix together. This will take the edge off the raw mushrooms. Serve and enjoy!
