Asian Brown Rice, Veggie and Bean Salad

Submitted by: SALUKI_DIANTHUS

Introduction

This is just a little recipe I improvised using ingredients I love. I like it and hope you do, too. Each serving is about 1.5 Cups and you get something low in saturated fat, with protein, fiber & lots of vitamin C! Not bad.... This is just a little recipe I improvised using ingredients I love.

Ingredients

    * 2C Canned Chick Peas (rinsed & drained)
    * 1C Cooked Brown Rice
    * 2C Broccoli (steamed & chopped)
    * 1C Spinach (fresh & chopped)
    * 1C Napa Cabbage (finely chopped)
    * 1-1/2C Tomotoes (fresh & diced)
    * 1/2C Onions (raw and diced)
    * 3tsp Garlic (Ready diced from a jar)
    * 2Tbsp Oyster Sauce
    * 2Tbsp Rice Vinegar
    * 1Tbsp Sesame Oil
    * 1Tbsp Sesame Seeds
    * 1Tbsp Light Soy Sauce

Directions

Instructions for this are REALLY simple. Cook the rice following package directions and allow to cool (you can use Minute Brown Rice or regular long grain or leftovers). Steam broccoli in a steamer or steam in a pan on the stove with 2Tbsp or so of water with the lid on, for a minute or two, (leaving some firmness to it) then allow to cool. Chop the spinach and tomatoes. Dice the onion.

Then combine all ingredients and either enjoy immediately (sometimes it's hard to wait!) or refridgerate for an hour. You can also make a day in advance as the flavors meld more the longer they sit together.

You can also try rice vinegar or leave out the soy & oyster sauce and try curry powder to taste as well.

I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think!

  • Wonderful!! The sauce is delectable and a nice change from the boring old vinaigrettes that I usually use. Thanks for a great recipe. - 8/11/09
