Bugs Bunny Brown Rice


  • Makes4 to 4 servings

Brown rice has a nuttier, crunchier texture compared to its refined white cousin. This colourful side dish is a carb and veggie in one. Cold leftovers make for a tasty Oriental salad the next day.


  • 1 cup brown rice

  • 2 1/4 cups water

  • 1 cube or pouch low-sodium chicken bouillon

  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp water

  • 2 tsp soy sauce

  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar

  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated (1 cup grated)

  • 2 green onions, minced (optional)

  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds


  • Bring brown rice, water and bouillon in a medium saucepan to a rapid boil. Stir, reduce to simmer and cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Cover and cook at low for 40 minutes. Whisk together sesame oil, water, soy sauce and sugar in a small bowl. Once rice is cooked, add grated carrot, green onions and soy dressing to cooked rice. Combine, cover with lid and set aside a minute or two to heat carrots. Garnish with sesame seeds.
