Nutty brown sushi rice is the comforting base for a colorful, satisfying bowlful of crisp, zingy, taste-popping flavors. Jamie Oliver has chosen these ingredients not only for color sake, but their nutrient values are combined in a way that makes it desirable and healthy at the same time.
- 200 g brown sushi rice
- 120 g frozen edamame beans
- 2 sheets nori seaweed
- 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
- 1 pomegranate
- ½ a bunch of fresh coriander
- Citrus and honey dressing
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
- 2 tablespoons runny honey
- 2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons Japanese rice vinegar
Rinse the rice in a sieve under cold running water to get rid of some of the starch, then place in a pan with a pinch of sea salt and cover with 400ml of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is fully cooked.
Defrost the edamame beans by putting them in a bowl and covering them with boiling water. Leave for 10 minutes.
Warm a dry frying pan over a medium heat and toast the nori sheets for a few seconds on each side. Leave them to cool, then tear them into strips.
For the dressing, finely grate the lemon and orange zest into a jug and squeeze in all the juice. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.
Once the rice is cooked, drain well and mix with the dressing and half the sesame seeds.
Place the rice in 2 bowls and top with piles of edamame, the pomegranate seeds, nori strips, and the remaining sesame seeds. Pick, roughly chop and scatter over the coriander leaves, then eat and feel clean and calm.
