Nutritional values

The many essential oils from ginger, spring onion and herbs are able to protect us from pathogens, because they successfully kill bacteria and partly also viruses and fungi. Together with the lime juice, which is rich in vitamin C, Asian rice salad is therefore a boon for our immune system.

Many of the ingredients used will not be available in a normal supermarket, but an Asian grocery store can help. If in doubt, you can replace Thai basil with basil and ketjap manis with soy sauce.

Preparation steps


Place rice in a pot and fill with water until water is over rice by 1-2 cm (approximately 1/2 inch). Boil, remove from heat and let soak covered for 15-20 minutes. Drain in a colander, place in a bowl and let cool while stirring occasionally.


Rinse tomatoes, remove stalks and chop into small pieces. Rinse snow peas, trim, blanch for 1-2 minutes in a pot of boiling salted water, drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Cut into 4 cm (approximately 1 1/2 inch) long pieces. (Alternatively, rinse green beans, trim and blanch for about 8 minutes in a pot of boiling salted water, drain, then rinse with cold water and cut into pieces).


Rinse scallions, trim and cut into small rings. Peel ginger and finely grate. Rinse cilantro and basil, shake dry and pluck leaves from stems.


Mix cold rice in a bowl with tomatoes, snow peas, scallions, ginger and herbs. Mix vinegar, lime juice, sweet soy sauce, salt and sugar in a bowl. Add to rice, mix and let rest. 


Divide between bowls and serve if desired with chopsticks.
