I really love experimenting with a variety of unusual ingredient combinations! Sometimes my trials work out and sometimes they do not!
I created this dish based on items I needed to use up before they expired and the outcome was delightful!
This recipe makes enough to serve 8 people and goes great with a side salad.
I remember first experiencing Forbidden Rice about 10 years ago while on a business trip for to San Luis Obispo, California. I could not believe how good it tasted and have added this yummy and healthy organic rice variety to my shopping list.
Recently the company, Lotus Foods, introduced their Forbidden Rice Noodles and they are a wonderful addition to dishes that best are complemented with a nutty-tasting base.
Even though the weather in Southern California has been unseasonably HOT this week, I just pumped up the AC and came up with this comfort-food specialty!
