12 Jun Sushi Salad Bowl
A twist to the Asian inspired rice bowl is the use of wild rice. Exceptionally nutritious, wild rice comes from a grass that happens to produce it’s own grain, and grows in the shallows of lakes and slow rivers.
It is high in B vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, protein and complex carbohydrates, 30 times more antioxidants then white rice and has a higher protein profile than quinoa. Wild rice has a nutty and earthy flavour with a distinctly chewy texture. If the wild rice is too intense, you can easily cook a half cup of brown basmati rice separately and replace it with a 1/2 cup cooked wild rice.
