Strain the rice, rinse well, then place in a pan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender and most or all of the water is absorbed. Drain any excess water then allow the rice to cool. While the rice cooks, thinly slice the cabbage. Set aside.

Next, thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. Heat a large skillet, add a few tablespoons of olive oil, then sauté the sprouts for 3-4 minutes allowing them to brown slightly. Sprinkle with sea salt then let cool.
