Forbidden Rice Vegan Bowl
This bowl is not just delicious but it is full of so much amazing flavor and as usual it is of course, nutrient dense, too!
Black rice, AKA forbidden rice, is one of our favorite grain. Legend has it that Chinese Black Rice, got the name “Forbidden Rice” because it was so nutritionally beneficial that only the emperors were allowed to eat it.
Forbidden rice has a really nice roasted nutty flavor and a really great chew to it and it makes the perfect base for this Spring inspired bowl. Topped with cumin roasted chick peas, sweet potatoes, beets, garlic spinach and pumpkin seeds. This bowl is finished off perfectly with the tangy and flavorful tahini lemon dressing.
