Brown Rice and Herb Salad

Serves 4 


1 ¾ cups Tenuta San Carlo Organic Brown Rice 

3 Tomatoes 

1 cup Mozzarella 

6 Anchovies Fillets (canned or jarred, rinsed to remove excess salt)

8 Quail Eggs (or 4 Chicken Eggs) 

3 tablespoons Capers (rinsed to remove excess salt)

1 bunch of Thyme, Basil, Mint & Marjoram 

1 bunch of Wild Herbs, such as Purslane (optional)

1 Lemon

Extra Virgin Olive Oil 




Put the rice, along with 3 cups of water, into a pressure cooker and cook for 15 minutes, starting from when it begins to whistle. (Alternatively, cook the rice in a pot of salted water for 45 minutes.) Place the cooked rice in a bowl and set it aside to cool. 

In a pot of boiling water, cook the eggs for 8 minutes. Peel them under cold running water. 

Cut the tomatoes and mozzarella into small cubes. Roughly chop the herbs and anchovies. Zest the lemon peel. 

In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients, including the rice, and dress with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Allow the rice salad to marinate in the refrigerator for a half hour before serving. 

Buon appetito!
