Black Rice with Sweet Potato Scallions


¾ cup black rice

1 ½ cups of water

¾ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 bunch scallions

1 tablespoon minced ginger

1 large sweet potato- diced

Scallion greens- chopped

Bring rice, water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a medium non stick saucepan, then reduce to low and simmer for around 30 -40 minutes. Remove rice from heat and leave covered for around 10 minutes.

While rice is cooking, heat oil in a medium to large nonstick skillet over medium high heat, sauté scallions, ginger, and sweet potato in pan, stirring, until well covered. Reduce heat to medium and add remaining salt; pepper to taste. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, it’s finished when the potato becomes tender. Add rice and gently stir to combine (preferably with a wooden spoon).
