1 cup(s)

low sodium soy sauce

3 Tbsp

rice vinegar

1 Tbsp, seasoned

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Bring the broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the rice. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Remove from the heat; let stand, covered, about 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk the soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, and oil in a large bowl. Add the rice, peas, bell pepper, carrot, celery, scallions, raisins, and parsley; toss well to coat. Serve at once while still warm or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 2 days. Yields 1 cup per serving.
