Black Rice & Purple Carrots

I can't wait to try this recipe that I found on Maria's blog Scandi Foodie from Australia. Maria, originally from Finland, takes beautiful photographs to accompany her wonderful recipes. This Black Rice and Purple Carrot Salad recipe really caught my eye. Not only is this salad an amazing color but it's full of super foods. The black rice, once known as the forbidden rice, has more health promoting properties than blueberries and is better than brown rice. Purple carrots are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. See the recipe below for all the other good ingredients.

Black rice and purple carrot salad 
(Serves 2)

1 cup non-glutinous black rice
grated zest of 1 lime
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar

3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
5 small purple carrots, coarsely grated
1/2 pomegranate, seeds
2 shallot greens/spring onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh coriander, finely chopped
peppery greens, to serve

 Cook the black rice in boiling water until soft (30 minutes). Drain and place in a large bowl.
       Add in all ingredients and toss well to combine. Serve with peppery greens (rocket, mizuna, etc.)
