Brown Rice Salad –
This Japanese Inspired Salad is a dish that can be eaten on its own when you something light and vegetarian, or serve as a side dish with some grilled fish, chicken or tofu. Its just like a ‘deconstructed’ sushi in a salad! It is full of gut loving ingredients like, brown rice ( resistant starch) Miso ( probiotic rich paste) and Tamari ( Fermented sauce), along with lots of gut loving vegetables and the added boost of sesame seeds and seaweed!
