This is another recipe from my cooking class (with adaptations). Mix the rice with some fresh spinach or kale and you have a fresh nutritious salad that your family will be wanting more.
I have made Forbidden (Black) Rice before. It has such a wonderful unique flavor, compared to any other rice.
- 3 c cooked Forbidden (black) Rice
- 3 tbs chives, minced
- 2/3 c carrot, shredded
- 1/4 c bok choy, shredded
- 3 tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped
Mix ingredients in a large bowl.
- 3 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tsp miso paste
- 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 1/2 tsp ginger, fresh, grated
- 3 tsp garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp sesame oil (optional)
Whisk together all the ingredients in a measuring cup with a pouring spout.
Combine rice mixture and dressing together in a large bowl. Stir until mixture is well incorporated.
Cover bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. By doing this step the rice soaks up the dressing and the flavor.
- 3 tbsp sesame seeds
Serve rice mixture over some greens. Eat. Enjoy.
