In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Chia Rice Salad. This recipe was published by the Lexington Herald-Leader Newspaper during March, 2013. It was previously published in the book “Chia: The Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood” by Wayne Coates.

Chia Rice Salad

½ cup chia gel (see note below)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary or oregano leaves, minced
1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups cooked brown rice (long grain, basmati or short grain)
1 small zucchini, julienned
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, optional

In a small bowl, combine chia gel, oil, lemon, garlic, salt, herbs and cayenne. Whisk until well-blended. (You also may put ingredients into a tightly closed jar and shake vigorously to mix.)
In a large bowl, combine rice, vegetables and Parmesan cheese, if using. Pour dressing over rice mixture, combining gently and thoroughly.
Note: To make chia gel, pour 1 cup cool water into a sealable plastic or glass container. Slowly pour 1¾ tablespoons chia seeds into water while briskly mixing with wire whisk. Wait 3 or 4 minutes, then whisk again. Let mixture stand about 10 minutes before whisking again. Store this mixture in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

I hope you enjoy this Chia Rice Salad! –Betty 🙂
