Spicy Seaweed Salad with Brown Rice

Spicy Seaweed Salad with Brown Rice

Serves 4
This is a wildly flavorful and very easy way to enjoy nutrient-rich seaweed. Serving the seaweed with brown rice makes it a light meal, but you can also add some adzuki beans to the rice or serve the dish with grilled tofu.
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 1/2 ounce mixed dried seaweed (such as wakame, arame or dulse)
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chili-garlic paste
  • 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

Meanwhile, place seaweed into a large bowl and fill the bowl with cold water. Soak until seaweed is tender, 10 to 15 minutes depending on varieties. Drain well, pressing down on seaweed to remove excess liquid and pat dry.

In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, soy sauce, agave, oil and chili-garlic paste. Add seaweed and toss well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve with brown rice and sprinkle with green onions.
