Forbidden Rice with Orange and Tomato


I like to be creative and try some different things out.  Instead of just having plain rice as a side dish, I decided to make rice that had a little more flavor.  I also used Forbidden Rice which is a black rice.

1 Cup Forbidden Rice (You can use brown rice)
2 Cups of water
1 Orange
1 Tomato
1/2 Red Onion
1/2 Green Pepper
Several Leaves of Fresh Basil

Put water and rice in a pot
Cover and bring to a boil
Lower heat and cook for 30 minutes
Peel Orange and cut up into bite size pieces
Cut up Tomato into bite size pieces
Cut up Onion into small pieces
Cut up Pepper into small pieces
Cut up Basil
When rice is done remove from heat and strain any excess water
Add orange, tomato, onion, pepper and basil
