For the salad

  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 1 cup red beans (canned or freshly cooked)
  • 5 brown Champignon mushrooms sliced
  • 8 Brussels sprouts
  • ½ yellow bell pepper cut into thin strips (julienned)
  • 2 kale leaves cut into small pieces
  • cups water
  • salt

For the sauce

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small piece of ginger (about 2 cm/½-1 in)
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp basil (dried)
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • salt


For the salad

  • In a saucepan add 2 cups of water. Once boiled, add the rice and simmer.
  • In another pot or pan, add ½ cup of water and salt. Once it boils, add the mushrooms, cover, and cook over very low temperature. After 8 minutes add the bell pepper, and after another minute add the kale, always covering the pan. After a minute they're ready to be served.

For the sauce

  • While you wait for the vegetables and rice to boil, make the sauce adding all the ingredients in a high-speed blender or a food processor, making it as creamy as you can. Depending on what the liquidity you want to achieve, it may require some extra water.


  • Serve, in a shallow dish, laying down the rice, then the vegetables, the beans and finally the sauce.


  1. You can use canned or fresh beans that have been soaked since last night, and boiled for at least 2 hours.
  2. You can make variations by replacing with your favorite vegetables or adding your favorite herbs.
