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!


Creamy Veggie Base


  • 2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 1 Tbl. garlic crushed
  • 8 oz. mushrooms sliced
  • 1 can Ro-Tel Tomatoes slightly drained
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts roughly chopped
  • 8 oz. Follow Your Heart vegan cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper


  1. Heat oil in pan and saute garlic for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in mushrooms and continue cooking for 5 more minutes or until slightly browned and softened.
  3. Pour in Ro-Tel tomatoes and saute, stirring for 2 minutes.
  4. Top with spinach and artichoke hearts and cook until spinach becomes slightly wilted. About 3minutes.
  5. Stir in vegan cream cheese and stir into vegetable mixture until completely blended, 2 minutes.
  6. Top with salt & pepper and serve over cooked Forbidden Rice noodles.
