Happy SUMMER everyone! I know I’m like 2 days late, but this is my favorite time of year and I always extend the celebration. There’s nothing better than the hot sun and nighttime thunderstorms. 

Was anyone else PETRIFIED of thunderstorms as a kid? Growing up my family moved around a lot because of my dad’s job and we spent a few years in Atlanta, GA. All I can remember is seeing pink lightning and the neighbor boy telling me it was the deadliest kind. But for real- the ATL has crazy severe storms and I was always the one hiding in the closet because we didn’t have a basement :P

I wanted to celebrate summer with a veggie-filled dish that can be made with ingredients from your local farmer’s market! So- pretend this is a summer solstice party in recipe form.

This dish is so fresh and full of flavor! It also features one of my favorite Nakano Rice Vinegar Flavors- Citrus! It made with a hint of ginger, so it paired PERFECTLY with the rest of the ingredients. This month, Nakano’s challenge was to create something with farmer’s market inspiration. Insert —> tons of veggies! I decided to pair it with a vegetarian protein, garbanzo beans for a the meat-free eaters out there! If you’re looking for animal protein, I suggest chicken, for sure.

The sauce is super simple made with…

  • Soy Sauce 
  • Maple Syrup
  • Nakano Rice Vinegar, Citrus
  • Ground Ginger
  • Garlic (you can never have enough)
  • Fresh Basil, of course

I wanted to keep the sauce light and not super saucy because the veggies were so perfect! Always an option to double the sauce if you’d like!

I am a HUGE fan of sticky rice and like to treat myself to it every once in a while. You’re more than welcome to pair it with brown rice, quinoa, or even my Paleo Cauliflower Fried Rice
