Stir-Fried Black Rice with Fried Eggs & Parmesan Roasted Broccoli
- 1 broccoli crown florets divided (keeping some stems), large ones sliced in half (9 oz/3 to 4 cups)
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 3 tablespoons grated parmesan
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne
- ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
- 2 cups black rice, cook the rice the day before (from about ⅔ of a cup uncooked)
- ¼ cup Peanut Sesame Dressing (recipe below)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sodium reduce soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon lime juice fresh
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
- ¼ teaspoon hot Asian pepper flakes or ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter 100% natural
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 clove garlic clove minced
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
For Serving (Optional)
- Chopped cashews
- Fresh cilantro
- Lime slices
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Spread the broccoli pieces over a baking sheet and drizzle with avocado oil, then sprinkle with garlic, salt, parmesan, and cayenne. Use your hands to toss everything together until the broccoli florets are well-coated. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes, or until broccoli is golden-brown and crispy.
- While the broccoli cooks make the dressing.
- Place all dressing the ingredients except the olive oil in a blender and process until smooth.
- Slowing add the oil with the blender running.
- Five minutes before the broccoli is done, start the rice.
- Heat a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high. Add rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until grains no longer stick together, about 4-5 minutes. Add in ¼ cup dressing stir to combine.
- Turn off the oven and leave the door open to cool a little while you divide the rice between plates and top with roasted broccoli.
- Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat with one tablespoon of olive oil.
- If your plates are oven safe, put them in the oven to keep the rice and broccoli warm.
- Crack 2 eggs into the hot skillet and cook until whites are set, slightly golden around the edges, and the yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes.
- Transfer one fried egg to each prepared plate and sprinkle with chopped cashews, and fresh cilantro leaves. Serve with the leftover dressing, and lime slices. Enjoy!
