  1. Put the rice into a medium lidded saucepan and pour over 800ml boiling water from the kettle. Bring to the boil, stir, cover with the lid and cook over low heat, swirling the pan occasionally, for 12 mins. Leave the lid on, take off of the heat and set aside for 5 mins to finish steaming. Set aside about one-third of the rice for tomorrow’s lunch.
  2. Put the sliced cucumber into a small bowl with a pinch of salt and the white wine vinegar. Leave to pickle, stirring occasionally for 10 mins. Drain before using.
  3. Lay the seafood sticks down on a plate or chopping board and, using 1 fork to hold and 1 fork to pull through, shred into strips. Mix together with the mayonnaise and season.
  4. Blanch the soya beans in a small saucepan of boiling water for a couple of mins until heated through then scoop out. Repeat with the frozen sweetcorn. Alternatively, cook in the microwave according to pack instructions.
  5. To assemble, put a big scoop of rice into the bottom of each bowl. Working clockwise, put mounds of the grated carrot, cooked soya beans, pickled cucumber, cooked sweetcorn and shredded seafood stick into each bowl. Scatter with sliced spring onions before serving.

Tip: Refrigerate the extra rice to use in tomorrow’s lunch.
