    Pea shoots work particularly well as a garnish for these deconstructed sushi rolls. To add a fanciful touch, consider using Bhutanese red rice or Chinese black rice. For extra protein, incorporate cooked tofu strips, smoked salmon, or cooked shrimp.


    1 1/2 cups (350 mL) brown rice
    3 cups (750 mL) water
    1 cup (250 mL) frozen shelled edamame
    3 sheets nori
    1 medium carrot, shredded
    3 green onions, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup (125 mL) orange juice
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) yellow miso paste
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh ginger, minced
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) red chili flakes
    1 ripe avocado, pitted and cubed
    1 cup (250 mL) micro greens
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) sesame seeds, preferably toasted

    Place rice and water in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered until tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to
    room temperature.

    Prepare edamame according to package directions and set aside.

    Toast nori sheets one at a time in dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant. Crumble or chop coarsely.

    Place cooled rice in large bowl and toss with edamame, nori, carrot, and green onion.

    Place orange juice, miso, ginger, rice vinegar, and red chili flakes in blender and blend until smooth. Toss ginger dressing with rice mixture.
