Coconut Black Rice Cereal


    For this recipe, it’s best to use the coconut milk that is available in Tetra Paks or cartons in the refrigerator section of most grocers. Extra cooked black rice can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days.


    1 cup (250 mL) black rice
    2 cups (500 mL) water
    1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
    1 tsp (5 mL) ground ginger
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) honey
    1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
    2 cups (500 mL) coconut milk
    1 1/2 cups (350 mL) cubed mango
    2 kiwis, chopped
    1/2 cup (125 mL) unsalted shelled pistachios

    Place rice, water, cinnamon, and ginger into medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered until all of the water has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Stir in honey and vanilla; let cool for 5 minutes.

    Divide among serving bowls and top with coconut milk, mango, kiwi, and pistachios. Taste and adjust sweetness if desired.

    Serves 4.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
