  1. Drain the soaked brown rice and add to a medium pot over high heat. Add the water and crush in the bouillon cube with your hands.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and partially cover with a lid. Cook until the rice is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Then remove from the heat, and let sit with the lid covered.
  3. Add all the dressing ingredients to a blender, and blend on high until well combined. Note: if using ginger powder instead of fresh ginger, you can simply whisk this in a bowl instead of using a blender.
  4. Add the cooked rice and vegetables into a medium bowl. Add the dressing and toss until coated.
  5. Enjoy immediately or allow the rice to marinate in the sauce in the fridge and serve later.


  • * If not soaking overnight, cook in more water and cook for 45 minutes. Read the package instructions for the exact preparation method.

I followed the recipe to the last ingredient. The recipe for 4 servings makes enough portions for a side, but not enough for a lunch. However, this recipe is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I never expected to love rice as a salad :O This was my first time trying miso and I am blown away! Thank you for sharing this great recipe! :D

Ahhh, I am obsessed with the flavours in this salad! I always double up the quantity when prepping because it is always worth it. I think miso paste is always so tasty in recipes. ❤🌿
