Cook Time: 30 MINUTES

Serves: 2 to 4 PEOPLE


  • 1 box Banza tricolor rice
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 cup trimmed and roughly chopped snap peas
  • 4 cups chopped red cabbage
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • 1 small cucumber, very thinly sliced
  • Black Sesame Seeds
  • Lime wedges
  • Carrot-Ginger Dressing
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped (about cup)
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and roughly chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  1. Cook Banza rice according to package instructions. Strain, rinse and set aside in a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing by combining all ingredients in a blender, and processing until completely smooth.
  3. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add frozen edamame and cook for 3 minutes, then add snap peas and cook for an additional 2 minutes. When edamame and snap peas are fork tender and bright green, drain well.
  4. Divide the rice, edamame, and snap peas among 4 bowls. Add chopped cabbage, cucumber slices and avocado. Drizzle lightly with carrot ginger dressing and place a lime wedge in each bowl. Finish with a generous sprinkle of sesame seeds.
