Recovery Rice Bowl

Sometimes, enough is enough. Enough eating out. Enough butter. Enough red meat. Enough complicated presentations and 12-step recipes. You just want a simple supper that's about sustanence, not entertainment; something to calm your senses instead of overwhelm them.

Recovery Rice Bowl

1/2 c. cooked black rice**
1 c. frozen, shelled edamame, thawed (Trader Joe's sometimes has fresh, shelled edamame, too)
sesame seeds
salt and pepper

Mix ingredients together. Eat. Go do something not food-related.

**I had never made black rice before, but after searching a bit on the internet, I boiled 1/2 a cup of rice in a cup of water. It seems to cook very quickly and stays a bit soupy, which works for this dish. The water turns a lovely purplish color, too!

I've never had black rice - its gorgeous. Sounds tasty, too!

Right now life is pulling me this way and that...switching to a low-meat diet usually makes me feel balanced. This recipe would fit in very just to find black rice...
