Ginger-Infused Black Rice with Fiesta Vegetables

Black rice is more nutrient dense than white or even brown rice. 

Today, I combined my favorite frozen mix of Fiesta Vegetables, red onion, yellow pepper, sweet corn, and black rice.

Thaw Fiesta Vegetables or any combination that you like, one bag.

Combine one cup black rice with two cups water, sliced ginger to taste, and one tablespoon olive oil. Cook covered on low until rice is soft and liquid is gone.

Chop one red onion and one sweet yellow pepper. When rice is done, remove from pan and set aside in bowl. Add two tablespoons of olive oil to pan, with onion and pepper. 

Cook on medium until soft then add Fiesta Vegetables. Add garlic, salt, and pepper to taste. Turmeric is optional.

Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add black rice and mix well. Remove from heat and serve.
