> 1 (8.8 oz) pkg 90-second brown rice
> 1 bunch broccolini
> 1 lime
> 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
> 2 tbsp soy sauce
> 2 tsp sesame oil
> 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
> 1 firm but ripe avocado
> 2 (5 oz) cans  tuna packed in water drained
> 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


Cook the rice according to package directions, transfer to large bowl and set aside. Trim broccolini and cut into 2-inch pieces. Cook in a large pot of boiling water until tender, about 5 min.
Zest the lime, halve and juice. In a bowl, whisk together the lime zest and juice, red pepper flakes, soy sauce and sesame oil to make a dressing.
Roughly chop the cilantro. Cut the avocado in half lengthways, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Cut into ½-inch cubes.
Toss the dressing, broccolini, cilantro, avocado and tuna with the rice. Garnish with sesame seeds.


To toast sesame seeds, spread on a plate and microwave for 1 min. Stir and microwave 30 seconds longer. Stir and microwave another 30 seconds if necessary.
