A light and refreshing salad. This is a wonderful spin on rice.
4 c vegetable broth
salt and pepper
2 c rice, rinsed and drained
1/4 c maple syrup
2 tbsp soy sauce
juice of 1 lemon
zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 orange
zest of 1 orange
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 c toasted almonds, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
1/4 c parsley, chopped
- In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Add the rice and stir. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes or until rice is tender and cooked through. Remove from the heat and allow to sit for 20 minutes with the lid on.
- In the meantime blend together in a blender the salt, pepper, maple syrup, soy sauce, lemon and orange juice, and cumin until well combined.
- Preheat the oven to 350* and toast the almonds until golden. About 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool slightly.
- Remove the lid from the rice and fluff with a fork and pour into a serving bowl. Add the green onion, parsley, almonds, lemon and orange zest, along with the vinegarette. Toss to combine well.
This is a perfect side dish to lighten up any main course.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
