  • Large Bowl

Pressed Cabbage Salad:

  • 1 C Forbidden Black Rice Cooked
  • ½ head Cabbage Chiffonade, Yields 4 C
  • 2 Carrots Chopped into Matchstick

  • ½ C Mint leaves only stems removed


Ginger Miso Dessing:

  • Add the rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil, miso paste, peeled ginger, and one samll peeled carrot chopped into pieces into a high speed blender and emuslify until smooth.

Pressed Cabbage Salad:

  • Mix the cabbage with about 1 Tsp. of salt. Place it in a large bowl and then put another heavy pot on top of the cabbage to weigh it down. I also like to add a mason jar filled with water to make the weight as heavy as possible. Allow the cabbage to sit this way for 2 hours to ½ a day. Pour off the excess water and salt.
  • Cook the rice according to the packaging if no insturctions are incuded. Wash the rice then place it into a add 1 and 3/4rd C of boiling water to 1 C of rice with 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring the water to a boil, then immediately reduce to a simmer and cover. Allow the rice to cook for 25 minutes or until all of the water has been absorbed by the rice. Then allow the rice to sit covered to steam for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • Mix the cabbage with the rice, sesame, carrots, celery and mint. Mix well and season to taste.
