Nutritious black rice, also known as purple rice or forbidden rice, typically turns deep purple when cooked. Its mild and nutty flavor pairs well with wheat germ. Shrimp, mango and cilantro top this colorful dish that’s as pretty as it is tasty.

Serves 4

2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

1 cup black rice

3 tablespoons Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

2 teaspoons canola oil

1 large garlic clove, sliced

1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

2 green onions, sliced

1 pound medium shrimp, shells removed

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari

1 tablespoon lime juice

4 teaspoons chopped cilantro

1/4 cup diced mango or more to taste

In medium saucepan over medium heat, bring vegetable broth and rice to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in wheat germ and set aside.

While rice cooks, pour oil into large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, green onions and shrimp and saute, stirring frequently, until shrimp are cooked through and opaque, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in sesame oil, soy sauce and lime juice and saute for another 30 seconds; remove from heat.

To serve, place 1 cup rice on each plate and spoon shrimp mixture over rice. Garnish each dish with cilantro and diced mango and serve.
