  • 2 tbsp unrefined sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup carrot, small diced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, small diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, small dice (optional)
  • 1/2 cup scallions, whites and greens, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 1 15-ounce can aduki beans, drained and rinsed or l/2 cup dried beans (see note below)

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/8 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free tamari or gluten-free shoyu

  • Place the mixture in a large bowl. Add the rice, celery, scallions, cilantro and beans, mixing gently until well combined.
  • To make the dressing
  • Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined and pour onto the salad, and stir to coat thoroughly.
