Summer rice salad

This high fibre dish is a great summer lunch or accompaniment for a barbeque. The high levels of antioxidants will help to counteract some of the harmful carcinogens created when food gets overcooked on the barbeque! 

Ingredients: 

100g brown rice

1 spring onion, finely chopped

40g pine nuts or chopped walnuts/almonds

100g sweet corn or other vegetable

40g raisins (optional)

1 red pepper, finely chopped

3 tbsp fresh mint or parsley (or any other fresh herb you like)

Dressing:

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce

1 inch freshly grated ginger (or 1 tsp ground ginger)

1 tbsp agave syrup

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Method

1. Cook brown rice as per instructions and cool.

2. Put all of the ingredients for the dressing in a jar and shake well. Put all of the salad ingredients in a bowl, pour over the dressing and mix well.

3. Serve alone with a green salad, or with fish, chicken or lean lamb. 

 

Serves 2 as main dish or 4 as side dish
