Somehow the rice I cooked didn't become as red as Amy's picture shows below, but instead made the mixed a not so beautiful shade of charcoal black. We discussed afterward that it would be beautiful if plated as a layered salad with torn lettuce topped with the rice and then the avocados and oranges. Even with the additional spices we added, it needed more flavor. I think if you mixed up a great vinaigrette dressing and tossed the rice in it, that would be amazing. Overall, I love the idea of the cool rice salad and think the "Forbidden black rice" is a gorgeous grain I'll definitely use again. Thanks for this concept Lorna :)
Amy, I love the photo website...and yes, hopefully we'll get on there! -Vicki
In the mix: Chinese Black Rice + diced oranges + toasted pumpkin seeds + avacodo + lettuce
The perfect snack before an evening yoga class.
After preparing these lettuce wraps, I attempted to set the mood in the kitchen by taking a large bite and saying "YUUMMM, these are soooooo good!" Failed attempt. Ben took a bite and in an instant uproar quickly replied, "How are these soooo good?" He told me to never make these again unless there is no other food. Between eating vegan once a week and this whole grain girls idea, I think it's taking a toll on him!
