Cashew Rice is an easy side that delivers lots of flavor with added kick.
1 cup uncooked sushi rice
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup chopped unsalted dry-roasted cashews
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons thinly sliced serrano pepper
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
How to Make It
Place uncooked sushi rice in a fine-mesh sieve. Rinse under cold water, stirring rice until water runs clear (about 30 seconds). Combine rice, water, and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Uncover and fluff rice. Stir in cashews, green onions, cilantro, serrano pepper, and vinegar.
