Try this salty and sweet filling rice bowl for a hearty lunch or a side. The sweet oranges are a great contrast to the salty asparagus and crunchy celery. Its super tasty with any kind of asian style dressing or a combination of orange juice and soy sauce.
2 cups cabbage, shredded
2 oranges, chopped
1 bunch asparagus, blanched
2 cups carrots, shredded
1 cup celery, chopped
2 avocados, chopped
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, hulled
1 cup wild rice
Cook the Wild Rice
In your rice cooker or on your stove top, cook 1 cup of dry wild rice. Once cooked, rinse under cold water to cool.
Blanch the Asparagus
Chop the asparagus into thirds and toss in a pot of boiling water. Cook only for 2 minutes so the asparagus is tender crisp. Remove from boiling water and rinse under cold water.
Chop and Mix
Chop the remaining ingredients and mix in a large bowl. Add in the wild rice and asparagus when they're done cooking.
This bowl is delicious with any kind of asian style dressing or you can make your own by combining 1 cup of orange juice and 1/4 cup of soy sauce. Shake thoroughly and dress to your liking!
