You might have noticed I’m pretty addicted to Black Rice lately. I tend to make a big batch and then leave a bowl in my fridge so I can enjoy this beautiful black grain throughout the week in a variety of easy-to-make cold Summer dishes. Eating great food without losing a lot of your precious time is very 2015 ;P! So, Last weekend I tried out making rainbow wraps using some of the black rice, combine all of this with a nice dip of Japanese Sesame Dressing and oohhh la laaaa!! What a party in my mouth! :D
The sticky texture of the black rice together with the fresh crunchy veggies and Japanese yellow pickled radish is just an amazing combo if you’d ask me! Other than steaming the black rice there is no cooking involved so every nutcase should be able to make this dish!
