  • 1 cup brown rice or quinoa
  • 2 cups coconut water or regular water
  • 1 lime juice and zest
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt divided
  • 1 1/3 cups frozen shelled edamame thawed
  • 2 tablespoon apricot all fruit or apricot preserves
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce tamari for gfree
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 fresh mango diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach optional


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Bring coconut water to a boil. Add rice and 1 teaspoon salt and let simmer, covered, on low for 45 minutes, or according to package directions. Once rice has cooked, add zest of lime and 1 tablespoon lime juice and mix well.
  • While rice is cooking, whisk together apricot preserves, soy sauce, sriracha and garlic together. Toss with edamame and roast for 20 minutes in oven.
  • Toss mango with red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon lime juice. 
  • Toss prepared rice with roasted edamame, mango, and spinach if using and serve. 


  • I used a whole grain rice and quinoa mixture for this rice salad, but all rice or quinoa works perfectly as well. 
    • If using quinoa, decrease cooking liquid to 1 1/4 cups.
  • Serve this rice salad immediately warm or refrigerate and serve within 3 days.
