There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Forbidden Rice

olive oil
1 medium sweet onion [chopped]
sea salt [to taste]
15 oz Forbidden Rice
water to cover rice by 1 1/8" inch

1. Heat your pot and add your oil, onions, salt and saute until translucent and sweet smelling. Your onion is breaking down and becomes sweeter..but I use sweet onion any way...

2. Add rice stir and toast until they smell nutty.

3. Add water, stir, cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 30 minutes.

4. Turn off heat, let stand for 10 minutes, fluff with fork.

Now remember that forbidden rice is black in color and will stain! I have added sticky rice to the mix but it all will turn black! but it has a nutty taste.  It's a experience........
