  1. Step 1

    Add the rice to a large saucepan of boiling water. Reduce to a simmer. Cook for 30 mins or until the rice is tender. Drain well. Season and return to the pan. Cover and set aside for 10 mins to steam. Use a fork to separate the grains.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, to make the dipping sauce, whisk soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and lime juice in a small bowl.
  3. Step 3

    To make the sriracha mayo, whisk the mayonnaise, oil and sriracha or chilli sauce in a separate small bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Place 1 kale leaf on a clean work surface. Cut crossways, about 6cm from the tip, to make 1 cup. Repeat with the remaining kale leaves.
  5. Step 5

    Arrange kale cups on a serving platter. Spoon 1 tbs of rice into the centre of each cup. Top with avocado, carrot and cucumber. Sprinkle with basil, mint and peanuts. Drizzle with the sriracha mayo and dipping sauce.
