1 x 250 g (9 oz) packet 90-second microwave black rice
1 bunch of broccolini, ends trimmed
1 red capsicum (pepper), thinly sliced
2 spring onions (scallions), thinly sliced
50 g (1¾ oz/2 cups) kale ribbons (stalks removed, leaves sliced and massaged)
1 large mango (or 2 medium ones), sliced into wedges
lime wedges, to serve


125 ml (4 fl oz/½ cup) coconut milk (tinned variety)
1 tablespoon lime juice (about ½ lime)
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 long red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons finely chopped
coriander (cilantro) leaves


1) Microwave the black rice according to the packet instructions. Once cooked, place in a serving dish and set aside to cool.

2) Next, place all the dressing ingredients in a small jug or jar, stir and set aside to allow all the flavours to combine.

3) Blanch the broccolini (pop it into a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and set aside for 3–4 minutes, or until just cooked through). Drain and set aside to cool.

4) Add the capsicum, spring onion, kale and mango to the black rice. Finally, slice the broccolini lengthways and add that too. Serve with the dressing on the side and add as desired.

5) Mix well and serve with lime wedges.


Tip: If you can’t find the microwave version black rice just get the normal version and cook it as per packet instructions—still very easy!
