Here is something I quickly did up today. A grain and a vegetable equals a meal. The colors are gorgeous.

Red Cabbage with Black Rice and Pumpkin Seeds

2 cups of red cabbage finely chopped

1 cup of cooked black rice

a pinch of sea salt

2 teaspoons of umeboshi vinegar

2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seed oil

1/4 cup of toasted pumpkin seeds

Add rice to sauce pan. Add spring water to half cover the rice. Place shredded cabbage on top. Add sea salt. Bring this to boil. Immediately reduce heat to low, cover pot and cook for 15 minutes. Add vinegar and oil, mix. Add pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
