Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Bring rice, water and pinch of salt to a quick boil, cover, lower heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile whisk sesame oil, tamari and lime juice together and set aside. While rice is still warm, (so that flavors will be absorbed) toss in the sesame oil and tamari mixture. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile place the diced potato in oven to roast until tender, about 12-16 minutes depending on size of dice.

When rice is cool add sweet potato, red pepper, yellow pepper, scallions, corn, spinach, and toss to mix all ingredients.

Adjust final seasoning with salt and pepper.

Great nutty rice flavour, and the sweet potato worked perfectly. One of my favourite recipes!

Great flavours and different textures. To shorten the cooking time for black rice soak it overnight.

This was very good hot! I served it with shrimp, salsa, and lime. My husband put it all in a burrito and loved it. The texture of the sweet potato was a delightful suprise.
