Directions

  1. Drain the soaked brown rice and add to a medium pot over high heat. Add the water and crush in the bouillon cube.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and partially cover with a lid. Cook for 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Then remove from the heat, cover, and allow to sit.
  3. Meanwhile, add all the dressing ingredients to a bowl and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the cooked rice and vegetables into a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss until coated. Enjoy immediately or allow the rice to marinate in the sauce in the fridge and serve later.

Yum! I recently got a jar of miso paste for the first time, and I'm trying every PUL recipe with miso in it 😊 This one did not disappoint! I switched the brown rice for quinoa + lentils for a protein boost. Thanks for the recipe!

Ooo how exciting, Isobelle, and we're so glad to hear! Thank you 🙂

I switched up the veggies to suit the tastes of our young children. I used sugar snap peas, Cucumber, and shredded carrots. It was a perfect dish for a hot summer day and everyone loved it.

Love the modifications, Amber, and thank you for taking the time to share 😃

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. ❤🌿
