Something I do not want to miss anymore, is our weekly veggie box. I just love the surprise to see what it contains and then to think about what I could do with the contents. And if I do not have any idea at all, then I usually use my wok for cooking. For this I have also a personal basic recipe that is very easy to modify so that one can use it also very well for leftovers.
On the blog I used it already as basis for the rice noodles with carrots and white cabbage. And today you will find the recipe in a version with red rice, carrots, Chinese cabbage and sugar peas.
The red rice which I have used is a Camargue rice. This rice has a red-brown colored husk. This color comes from the cultivation on clayey soil. The real grain is white. This is also the reason why this species is only available untreated and unpeeled as brown rice.
As I like red rice very much, the longer cooking time is ok for me. But if you want to speed up the cooking time, you can take, of course, also a rice variety with a shorter cooking time or some rice leftovers from the previous day. In any case, enjoy trying out and modifying!
