- Wash the rice under running water several times, and let drain in a colander for about 40 minutes.
- 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.
- 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.
