Being gluten-free is not only about eating healthy but it also aids your digestive system. Rice, quinoa, oatmeal are some gluten-free grains to cook delicious dishes. Check out these simple and moreish dishes that are gluten-free: 

Veggie Fried Rice:

Start with steaming some basmati rice. Use Daawat, the best quality brown rice for this recipe. Chop onions, broccoli, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, asparagus. In a hot wok, sauté some star anise, bay leaf in sesame oil. Add the veggies and cook until tender. Add the rice and cook for 10 minutes. Add a sprinkle of soy sauce, lemon juice, and sriracha sauce. Finish with chopped spring onions and peanuts. Serve hot with a side of stir-fried veggies in lemon garlic sauce. This summer fried rice can be stored in an airtight container.
