Lime Ginger Baked Pink Rice

Posted by

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely adore the bulk foods section of the grocery store. You can try all sorts of new foods without much commitment (juuuuuuuuust in case you do not care for the food item). I use the bulk section as a tool for culinary experimentation all the time, particularly with my grains (and my beans!). So, when I saw this pink rice, I just knew I had to try it (pink being my favorite color and all)!

I adapted my basic baked herbed brown rice recipe and spiced it up with a little lime and ginger. The final dish turned out mildly fragrant and super tender. Yes and Yes! I served it with some adzuki beans and a simple salad. As my nana would say, it was “just lovely!”

Have a great day folks and see you next week with a new recipe!

  1. What an unusual dish. Can’t wait to try it. My mouth is watering at the thoughts of zingy lime with rice. Hope you are well, Tiffany, and kept busy with all your exciting projects.
