This recipe combines garlic, ginger and the taste of orange from an unusual source to blend sweet, peppery and garlic tastes into one dish. It suggests either noodles or rice, in this case, black rice, as serving options with the roast.
The choices of rice have exploded over the past several years. In the past, only white rices and some brown have been readily available. Now, you can buy black rice, brown rice, purple, orange and white rice almost everywhere as well. Each offers its own unique texture, color and flavor.
There are about 40,000 different varieties of rice around the world, and one variety, wild rice that is not rice at all. Wild rice is the grain that native indigenous populations in North America used as their staple grain. Today, it is available in limited quantities and for a high price. If you ever have the chance, though, to try this delicious grain, go for it.
Rice blends with and complements many foods and can often be used interchangeably with many dishes. Of course, the classics like Mac and Cheese won’t quite hit the spot the same way, but dishes where you might choose potatoes or noodles as the side or the base may work just as well with rice. Try a new variety with this dish and see how your family likes it. It may start a whole new food tradition at your home. Why not try this dish tonight?
