Gingery Rice with Sweet Potatoes and Peas

Gingery rice with sweet potatoes and peas

I came across a classic Thai dish that combines white rice with white potatoes, and though it sounds too starchy, the seasonings and embellishments sounded appealing. So I took the general idea of this recipe and revved it up to include the two main ingredients’ more nourishing counterparts—brown rice and sweet potatoes. This may sound like an offbeat combination, but really, it works! It’s like sunshine on the dinner plate. You can also substitute quinoa or any other favorite grain for the rice. Serve with a simple tofu, tempeh, or bean dish and a salad. Adapted from Vegan Express.
