    Ingredients

    • 1 lg. Carrot, shredded or finely chopped
      1/4 tsp. Salt
      1 small Garlic Clove, crushed through a press
      1 tsp. Dark Sesame Oil
      3 tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice (or more to taste)
      3 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
      2.5 cups Water with a pinch of Salt
      1 cup Short- or Medium- Grain Brown Rice
      Fresh Cilantro sprigs, for garnish (Optional)
      1/3 cup Chopped Unsalted Dry-Roasted Peanuts
      2 Scallions, trimmed & thinly sliced

    Directions

    1. 1) Cook the rice in the salted water until tender and all the water is absorbed, about 45 min. Transfer to a colander, rinse with cold water, and shake off the excess. (The rice can be cooked ahead and left at room temperature until ready to serve.)

      2) Combine the oil, lime juice, sesame oil, garlic and salt in a large bowl. Add the rice, carrot and scallions. Toss to blend; sprinkle with the peanuts. Taste and add more lime juice, if desired. Garnish with cilantro, if using, and serve.
