Serves 4

1 cup organic brown rice

1 cup vegetable broth

1 cup water

1 Tbs. peeled, minced fresh ginger

1 tsp. minced lemongrass, white part only

⅔ cup diced carrots

½ cup cooked green peas

⅓ cup sliced green onions

DRESSING

2 Tbs. fresh lime juice

1 Tbs. rice wine vinegar

1 tsp. sesame oil

2 Tbs. canola oil

1 tsp. soy sauce

½ tsp. grated lime zest

½ tsp. sambal oelek, optional (Sambal oelek is a hot chili sauce available at Asian markets and some supermarkets.)

1. Combine rice, broth, water, ginger, and lemongrass in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 40 minutes. Remove from heat, let sit 5 minutes, and fluff with a fork. Allow to cool to room temperature, then stir in carrots, peas, and green onions.

2. To Make Dressing: Combine ingredients in small jar, and shake until well-combined.

3. Transfer rice mix to serving bowl, toss with dressing, and serve. (Can be refrigerated for later use.)
