Black rice: The fastest sunny winter carrots fried rice with feta cheese

Préparation: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

Are you a black rice lover?

What about sunbathing today? It’s raining cats and dogs outside of my window while I am sitting down tapping on my computer. This dish warms me up when thinking about it and it’s just perfect for now. I have spent the last couple days surfing in the South West of France in Biarritz and it was just great to get out a bit. Exactly like this dish who makes me travel even thought I’ve only used locals ingredients. Well I know I am a bit cheating with the basil leaves but I have a plant in my kitchen all year long 🙂
I was really surprised by the “dancing flavours” of this plate from the roasted carrots and the black rice. Especially knowing that the all dish was ready to eat in 25 minutes. The lemon zests enhances the fruitiness of the dish combined to the raspberry vinegar. Just so delicious!

It’s crazy how can easy and simple recipes can turn when you don’t expect it. That fried rice was made on a lunch break, when I had 30 minutes to go before going back on my stuff. It ended up being so delicious that I grabbed my camera and took I few shots in order to share it with you guys. Well I hope you will like it!
