RED RICE SALAD WITH CHARGRILLED CORN, AVOCADO, CHILLI, LIME AND SPRING ONIONS
Recipe Created By:
What you will need
- 250g of Riso Gallo Rustico Red wholegrain rice
- 2 small ripe avocados
- 2 corn on the cob
- 10 spring onions
- 1 lime
- 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 red chilli
- 1 small bunch of coriander or parsley
- 20 g of mix toasted seeds
- 20 g of unsalted butter (Or vegan alternative)
- Salt and pepper to taste
How to prepare:
First boil the rice in salted water for around 20-22 minutes. It has to be cook through but still retaining a little bite to it. Drain and to cool it down rinse it with fresh water until warm.
To cook the corn the quickest way I found is the microwave. Leave the husk on and place it onto a microwave safe dish. Cook it for about 4-5 minutes until soft. Let it rest for 5 minutes and when still warm peel it well. Now you can season to taste and brush them with a mix of oil and butter. Either flash them on a griddle pan or if you can over a bbq to give them a nice roasted flavour. When coloured all around remove them from the heat let them cool. Separate the corn from the cob. Wash the spring onions and roast them quickly over the griddle too, for about 2 minutes
Peel the avocados and chop them roughly. Chop the chilli and spring onions and mix all the ingredients with the red rice. Season with just a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and the zest and juice of 1 lime.
Garnish with chopped coriander and oven toasted seeds like pumpkin and sesame.
