brown rice salad - great for using up leftovers

I make this recipe when I have random bits of vegetables leftover - it is a good way to use them up! I add this to little containers for the Big Little's lunch and the Husband likes it too.

Ingredients for salad:
3 cups brown rice
2 sticks of celery, finely diced
1 small zucchini, finely diced
bunch of asaparagus
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
2 tbsp pepitas

For the dressing:
2 tbsp tamari/soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
juice of one lime
1 tsp fish sauce

  1. Cook the rice however you prefer (I do it in the Thermomix). Add it to a bowl to cool.
  2. While rice is cooling, add the oil to a fry pan and then add the vegetables and cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently. Cook for a few minutes until slightly golden and cooked through. Add to bowl with rice.
  3. Add sunflower seeds and pepitas to bowl.
  4. Combine dressing ingredients in a bowl. Add to the rice and vegetables, mixing through with your hands.

Enjoy! Can be eaten hot or cold.

Serves 6.
