Serves 4 to 6
Rinse and drain the uncooked brown rice. Place the rice in a small sauce pan with 3 cups of water and the pinch of salt. Bring the rice to a boil over high heat, lower the heat to medium and simmer for 40 minutes until most of the water has been absorbed. Place a tight fitting lid on the pan and remove from heat and let sit for another 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan with vegetable oil over high heat, add the garlic and onion to the pan and very quickly toss until fragrant. Add the cucumber, tomatoes, and cabbage. Sprinkle with curry powder (optional) and season to taste with salt, pepper. Splash with soy sauce. Cook until tender.
