    Directions

    1. Wash the rice under running water several times, and let drain in a colander for about 40 minutes.
    2. Then, heat the rice in a saucepan of boiling water, let a little bit of the water evaporate, put the lid on the pan, and let the rice simmer for about 5 minutes (be careful not to let it stick to the bottom of the pan). Remove from heat, and cool completely.
    3. Cut the ends of the zucchini, wash thoroughly and cut thin slices of the zucchini with a potato peeler and grill. Be careful not to grill too much so that the zucchini slices do not fall apart.
