A delicious way to enjoy black rice is by using a traditional recipe for fried rice.  This recipe is full of antioxidant power and easy to prepare. And as a cooking oil, I used canola oil due to its neutral taste, light texture and high heat tolerance make it ideal for stir frying.

4 cups black rice, cooked
2 Tbsp canola oil
1 red onion, diced
1/2 cup peas (frozen ok)
1 carrot, diced
3 celery stalks, diced
1 Tbsp. ginger, crushed
1 Tbsp. garlic, crushed
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 bunch scallions, diced and divided (green and white)
3 eggs



  1. Whisk eggs together and cook over medium-high heat to make an egg pancake. Once cooked, removed from heat, chop into pieces and put aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or large frying pan or wok. Add the onion, carrots, celery and the white parts of the scallion, the ginger, garlic, and sauté for roughly 3 minutes. Then add the peas.
  3. Add the cooked black rice and sauté for a couple of minutes more, until heated through.
  4. Add the green parts of the scallion and the soy sauce, stirring, until well heated.
  5. Stir in chopped cooked eggs, and serve.
