Brown Rice Salad

I love this salad, it was first made for me by Kathy, Russell's Aunt and it is fantastic. So after knowing her for 16 years, I finally remembered to get the recipe from her so I could make it myself! Give it a try it is truly yummy!

Ingredients

2 cups brown rice
10 spring onions, sliced
1 red capsicum, diced
2/3 cup currants
6 tbsp Sunflower seeds, toasted
3 tbsp Parsley, chopped
1 tbsp Olive Oil
4 tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
Salt & Pepper

Method
  • Cook brown rice to your liking (I like it with a little bit of crunch left in it)
  • Allow to cool
  • Add the capsicum, currants & parsley, sunflower seeds
  • Mix together the oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and add to salad
  • If you like you can also add a handful of toasted nuts such as peanuts or pistachios
