Ria’s Buddha Bowl Stirfry – (V+GF) 

Serves 6-8

This is an amazingly easy to prepare recipe that takes minutes if you have already prepared your grains prior to the stirfry. If not prepare them first to simmer. You can use either black or wild rice or a variety of quinoa. In this dish I had prepared Black Rice the day before so this meal was seamless and absolutely delicious.
And beautiful to look at!

Check rice to prevent from burning or sticking. If you need to add water add a few tablespoons and keep on low heat to steam. You want the rice to be soft but not mushy or sticky. Should be slightly firm but not hard. If you need to sample a teaspoon or few grains. Check and continue to steam or add a few tablespoons water.
