Learning through travel, Abbie has eaten her way through nearly 60 countries. Australia, Finland, Morocco, Japan and France - a few of her culinary favoruites. She's passionate about taking ginger into unexpected places, while still revisiting the classics like her beloved Ultimate Chewy Ginger Snaps. Favourite culinary book: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Favourite moment with a fellow chef: Dinner with Julia Child, 1992. Actually, she was at the next table. We told the waiter, "We'll have what she's having."

Chickpea Rice Bowl With Carrot-Ginger Dressing

Vegetarian – yes, but oh-so satisfying. I’m a carnivore but enjoy a vegetarian meal now and again. The dressing is amazing – don’t pass it up. Beautiful, fresh, healthy. If you need protein, just add tuna or salmon poke.


  • 220g chickpea rice (substitute brown or white rice)
  • 150g frozen shelled edamame
  • 150g trimmed and roughly chopped snap peas
  • 300g chopped red cabbage
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • 40g The Ginger People® Sushi Ginger
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Lime wedges


1. Cook rice according to package instructions. Strain, rinse and set aside in a large bowl.
2. Meanwhile, make the dressing by combining all ingredients in a blender. Process until completely smooth.
3. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add frozen edamame and cook for 3 minutes, then add snap peas and cook for an additional 2 minutes. When edamame and snap peas are fork tender and bright green, drain well.
4. Divide rice, edamame, and snap peas among 4 bowls. Add chopped cabbage, Sushi Ginger and avocado, divided as well. Drizzle lightly with carrot ginger dressing and place a lime wedge in each bowl. Finish with a generous sprinkle of sesame seeds.
