Pesto Rice Salad

My own creation--and terrific if I do say so!

1 1/2 cups brown rice
3 cups water
1 tsp salt

1-2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup walnuts
3 cups basil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup soy parmesan

1/3 cup toasted walnuts
1/2 cup roasted red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped black olives
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Cook rice in salted water until done. Cool.

Prepare pesto. Place garlic and 1/4 cup walnuts in food processor. Chop until fine. Add basil and process while slowly adding olive oil. Process until smooth. Add salt and soy parmesan and pulse to blend.

Mix rice and pesto in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, combine thoroughly, and chill.
