Forbidden Rice Bowl and Roasted Vegetable Bowl

I had some Forbidden Rice at a restaurant sometime ago. I cannot remember the restaurant or when it was, but I do remember how good it tasted. I had purchased a bag of this delicious rice with intentions to make this delectable rice myself. I bought the Forbidden Rice and then put it into the pantry to be forgotten. The rice was found when I decided to clean out and organize my pantry.

To my surprise and delight I found this treasure and decided to bring it to you. Forbidden Rice is also called Black Rice due to its color, yet when it is cooked it turns into a purplish hue.

I hope this will inspire you to try something new this week. It is still as good as I remember.

Forbidden Rice:

  • 2 c vegetable broth
  • 1 c Forbidden Rice (black rice)

Roasted Vegetables:

  • 2 c carrots, sliced
  • 1 c parsnips, sliced
  • 1 bag broccoli (12.6 oz) frozen
  • avocado oil
  • All-purpose seasoning
  • Fresh Herbs, garnish

In a medium size saucepan add vegetable broth and rice. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cover with lid. Simmer about 30 minutes, or until liquid is completely absorbed. Fluff rice with fork.

Drizzle avocado oil onto veggies. Sprinkle all-purpose seasoning onto veggies and stir.

Roast veggies for 25 minutes. Stir veggies midway through roasting time.
