Fried Black Rice With Ginger Tofu, Spinach and Green Beans

Yesterday I tried yet another vegetarian recipe! I spotted this one on wholeliving.comand it looked amazing and super healthy so I had to give it  try.



  • 3/4 cup black rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 bunch spinach, large stems removed and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
  • 1 pound extra-firm tofu, cut into six 1/2-inch-thick rectangles
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (I used a little soy sauce, hoisin sauce and thai chili paste instead – Thats what I had in the fridge)
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • *I also added some fresh green beans as well!


  1. Bring rice and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
  2. Steam spinach, covered, in 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat for 2 minutes; set aside. Saute garlic, ginger, and scallion whites in remaining oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. I added my green beans to the garlic, ginger and scallion whites and satteed for a bit and set it saide.  Add tofu and Sriracha and cook until tofu is golden, about 6 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add rice to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until crisp, about 2 minutes. Serve with spinach, green beans and tofu. Garnish with scallion greens and serve with lime.

This was great!

If you don’t eat Tofu you can substitute for chicken breast.
