New Zealand Rice

April 29, 2013

I was treated to this delicious recipe whilst staying with Tom and Espe in Gandia, Spain. You can read all about my fabulous week there in my post A Lovely Week on the Costa Blanca Tom and Espe spent the winter travelling and picked up this recipe in New Zealand. The pictures don’t really show how tasty it is and it really is very easy to make. Once made it will keep in the fridge for a few days and is very enjoyable with pretty much anything! Oh, and it’s also full of things that are very good for you!!


  • 300g brown rice
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 1 small bunch of spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 handful walnuts, chopped
  • 2 handfuls sultanas
  • 1 handful dried cranberries
  • 50g mixed seeds
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp sesame/olive oil (I used olive oil because I couldn’t get sesame oil, but it should be sesame really)




  • Boil the rice with the stock cube as per the instructions on the box
  • Drain and rinse well.
  • Stir in the spring onions and leave to cool.
  • Add in the pepper, red onion, sultanas, cranberries, walnuts and seeds and mix well.
  • Stir in the soy sauce and oil.
  • Cover and leave in the fridge until needed.
