Wild Rice, Lentil, Chorizo and Prawn Salad

Wow that’s a mouthful. A tasty mouthful! I’ve adapted this recipe from Daliana, it’s so good and a good direction to head in for starting my health kick again.

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 1/4 cup dry wild rice
  • 1/4 cup cannellini beans
  • 1/4 cup lentils
  • 1/8 cup broken walnuts
  • Chorizo
  • Prawns


  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
  • 1/2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp of another type of oil (I used walnut)
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cook wild rice in 2 cups of water for approximately 35-40 mins. Drain and cool.
Defrost, thaw and cook prawns. I like to cook the prawns and chorizo together in the oven for about 12-15 minutes at 180C. There’s no need for oil, as the chorizo will coat the prawns as they cook.
Boil the lentils for around 20 minutes. Again, drain and cool. Cook cannellini beans, or if they’re tinned, better still, no cooking involved! Whisk dressing ingredients together.

Put rice, lentils, beans, chorizo, prawns and nuts in bowl and toss with dressing. Add additional salt or pepper to taste. Eat cold as a delicious healthy salad dinner.
