Number of Servings: 8


    1/3 cup macadamia oil, olive oil, or sunflower oil
    2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
    1/4 cup (fresh or canned) all-natural 100% pineapple juice
    1 garlic clove
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    2 tablespoons soy sauce (or shoyu)
    1 cup pineapple, cut into chunks
    2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
    1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt

    2 1/2 cups cooked brown rice, room temperature
    4 green onions, thinly sliced
    3 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 cup cashews, roasted/toasted and chopped
    1/2 small serrano chile, seeded and deveined, and minced (optional) - not included in nutritional value
    4 ounces seitan, cut into little bits and pan-fried (optional) - not included in nutritional value


Start by making the dressing. Combine the oil, sesame oil, pineapple juice, garlic, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, fresh pineapple, ginger, and salt in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan, and gently warm just before serving, don't simmer or boil.

In the same bowl you used to toss the greens, or in an extra large skillet over medium heat, combine the rice, most of the onions, shallots, cashews . Add about half of the dressing and toss well. If you are serving the rice hot, saute it in the pan until it is heated throughout. Taste, and adjust with more dressing if needed. Spoon the rice over greens and finish with any remaining onions, shallots, cashews.
