Day 3: Edoras? Not quite, but Middle-Earth (Lord of the Rings) is very close and appears very similar to the landscape around Avoca River, Birdwood and Craigieburn Range (Tour from Lake Coloridge, Ryton Station), Canterbury NZ

Rice salad "Ryton Station"

1 cup rice* cook and then add
1/2 onion finely chopped
1/4 cup soya sauce
cool at least 2 hours


3 spring onions
1 capsicum
nuts (almonds, peanuts)
seeds (sunflower, pumpkin and sesame)


1/4 cup olive oil
1 lime (rind + 2 tbsp juice)
1 tbsp honey
1 clove garlic crushed
1 tbsp ginger grated

* Probably this is a culinary crime, but I really like a mix of natural brown rice with long grain Indian Basmati rice and sushi rice: 1/3 each, different cooking times!
