This creamy lemony rice meal is perfect to eat as the days are getting warmer. During the warmer months it’s important to nourish yourself with lighter and more refreshing food. I love citrus and add lemon or orange to many of my meals. I originally wanted to make this with noodles, but I have a bunch of left over coconut rice.
The lemon sauce is light, refreshing, and full of citrus which accents the swiss chard, baby spinach, and broccoli.
The vitamin C in the lemon has been shown to enhance iron absorption. It captures non-heme plant iron and stores it in a form that's more easily absorbed by your body. In one study, taking 100 mg of vitamin C with a meal increased iron absorption by 67%
