Is anyone else as obsessed with Black Rice as I am? I have always been a fan of contrasting textures in food, and black rice has that firm pop – while the sweet potato, avocado and feta are creamy. This is a beautifully vibrant salad to serve on your Christmas table, I recommend decorating it with some pomegranate seeds so its extra festive. If you are after a Honey Mustard Dressing, you can just make the dressing component of the recipe too 😉 Love Nik xx
I absolutely adore the nutty texture of black rice in a salad. If you haven’t already tried my Poké Bowl from The Healthy Mix IV, you absolutely must try it asap.
400gsweet potatopeeled, cubed into 3 cm chunks (approx. 1 medium)
2avocadoscut into 3 cm chunks
1sprinklepomegranate seedsfor colour
Add all dressing ingredients to mixer bowl. Blend for 1 min/speed 7/MC on. Set aside.
Without washing bowl, insert simmering basket and weigh in rice. Take your simmering basket and rinse the rice well. Put the simmering basket back in place.
Weigh in 900 g water with the rice. Put your deep steaming tray in place with sweet potato. Cook for 25 min/steaming temperature/speed 3. You may need to remove your sweet potato early if it cooks - you don't want it to be too soft.
Let your rice and sweet potato cool completely then stir through remaining salad ingredients and dressing. Season to taste and sprinkle with Pomegranate if desired. You may also like to add a handful of baby spinach or rocket.
