Brown Rice bowl with enoki, bok choy and tofu

Rice bowl with enoki mushrooms, tofu and bok choy

This delicious rice bowl is super nutritious! It has a lot of fiber and is rich in vitamins and minerals. I have used a good quantity of Enoki mushrooms in this bowl because they are highly nutritious being rich in vitamin B and other useful minerals like selenium, phosphorous and iron. They also have important amino acids that help improve the immune system. Enoki mushrooms have been used for centuries in Asian culture for medicinal purposes, as a remedy for high blood pressure, stomach ailments, high cholesterol and liver disease. The bok choy an equally nutrient rich asian vegetable provides an abundant amount Vitamin A and C in this bowl. In fact one cup of bok choy is sufficient for your daily requirement for both vitamins.
