Good for 2-3 servings:
1 cup uncooked short grain rice, makes 3 cups cooked
1 cup water
1/4 tsp Suncore Foods® Blue Butterfly Pea Supercolor Powder
2 tbsp oil
3/4 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt, or to taste
Veggies (totally up to you!):
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup diced carrots
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup chopped purple cabbage
1. Wash the rice through running water 2 to 3 times. In a rice cooker, add in the water, washed rice, and butterfly pea powder. Leave to cook and then cool for 15 minutes. Cooling the rice prevents it from being too sticky and mushy when stir-frying!
2. In a large pan or skillet, heat 2 tbsp oil. Add in the chopped onion and garlic. Saute until cooked through and garlic is lightly brown. Add in the rest of the veggies. Season with 3/4 tsp salt, or to taste and some pepper. Mix in the cooled rice.
3. Leave to cook for 3 to 4 minutes over medium high heat. Serve and enjoy!
