Ingredients 100 grams diced Sweet Potato 100 grams diced Potato 100 grams diced Butternut Squash 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil Salt/Pepper 3/4 cup Forbidden Black Rice 1 1/2 cups Water 2 Tablespoons Sun-Dried Tomato strips 1/4 cup Chopped Walnuts 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries 1/2 a small Carrot, julienned 1/8th a head of Red Cabbage, julienned 1 large handful of Arugula and Baby Spinach For Dressing 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar 2 teaspoons Agave Nectar 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil Salt/Pepper Instructions Begin by roasting your diced potato, sweet potato and butternut squash. Toss in olive oil, salt, pepper, and baked on a parchment lined baking tray in an oven preheated to 200 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes. Give it a toss half way through baking. Let cool slightly. In a deep saucepan, combine your black rice and water. Bring to boil, then turn down to a simmer, cover with a lid and let cook for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes has passed, turn the stove off and leave the rice in the covered pot for another 15 minutes. Do not open the lid! Tip rice into a large bowl, and combine with sun-dried tomato, walnuts, cranberries, and carrot. Toss to mix well. Add red cabbage, arugula and baby spinach to the salad and toss to combine. Don't do this too early as you don't want the residual heat of the rice to wilt your greens. To make your dressing, combine apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, salt/pepper, agave nectar and extra virgin olive oil in a small jar. Cover with a lid and shake to combine and emulsify dressing. Pour over your salad and toss to combine. Enjoy!
This sounds really interesting, I'll have to try this if I stumble upon some black rice.
I've never tried black rice but this look excellent! I especially love the idea of agave, apple cider, and dijon dressing!
I love black rice so much! Such a fun change from the usual jasmine or brown rice routine :)
