Forbidden Rice Stir Fry

Forbidden Rice Stir Fry
  • 1 cup day old forbidden rice
  • 1/4 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1/4 cup carrots diced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh corn
  • 1 tbs fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tbs scallion chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 tbs toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat up your wok on super high. Add sesame oil, saute garlic, ginger, and scallion for 30 seconds. Toss in all the veggies, and saute for 3 minutes. Add rice and cook for 3 more minutes. Nice and simple. Using forbidden rice gives your meal that extra little wow factor. Try adding some soy sauce, sriracha (for some heat), tofu, tempeh, or edamame.

Forbidden rice is something new to my ears:) Never head of it before. Sounds interesting and delicious! Next time I am in the store, I should look for it.

"Wow" factor is important and fun, I love the contrast of the colored vegetables on the black rice. I have heard of forbidden rice but never tried it, I'll make the point to look for it when next at the grocery.
