Energy Rice Mushroom Larb Salad

One of our obsessions at the moment is Iarb - a popular Thai salad using minced meat, tossed with a simple dressing of lime juice and fish sauce. Sometimes, glass noodles are added to make a meal of the dish. We created a much healthier version, using Mekhala's Energy Rice, and substituting mushrooms for meat.


(Serves 2-4 Persons)

1 Cup Mekhala Energy Rice, rinsed

500gm Portobello or Swiss Brown Mushrooms, diced

1 Tspn Rice Bran/Vegetable Oil

150gm Salad Leaves

1 Packed Cup Mint Leaves

1 Packed Cup Coriander Leaves

1 Handful Cherry Tomatoes, halved

1 Small Japanese Cumber, thinly sliced

2 Small Asian Shallots, finely sliced

4 Tblspn Lime Juice

4 Tblspn Fish Sauce (or to taste. for vegetarian sauce, substitute with tamari)


1. Cook rice in a cooker or pot and allow to cool when cooked.

2. Heat oil in a wok, then cook mushrooms

3. Mix lime juice and fish sauce to make dressing.

3. In a large salad bowl, toss all the ingredients with the dressing.
