One of our favorite recipes here at New Body You. A very easy dish to prepare. Tasty and wholesome.
¾ cup black rice
1 ½ cups of water
¾ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 bunch scallions
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 large sweet potato- diced
Scallion greens- chopped
Bring rice, water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a medium non stick saucepan, then reduce to low and simmer for around 30 -40 minutes. Remove rice from heat and leave covered for around 10 minutes.
While rice is cooking, heat oil in a medium to large nonstick skillet over medium high heat, sauté scallions, ginger, and sweet potato in pan, stirring, until well covered. Reduce heat to medium and add remaining salt; pepper to taste. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, it’s finished when the potato becomes tender. Add rice and gently stir to combine (preferably with a wooden spoon).
