High Grade Jade

I'd never seen green rice before until I spotted this Jade Rice at the EarthFare organic grocery store in Columbia, SC.  I cooked it tonight in this Scallop Paella dish.

 Scallop & Jade Rice Paella

(Serves 2)

Saute onion, pepper, garlic and spices in olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1 small green pepper, seeded and diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Add broth, lemon juice and rice.
1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup jade rice
Fresh ground pepper
Bring to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes until all water is absorbed.

In a separate pan, saute onion in buttery spread.  Add scallops and saute 3-4 minutes per side.  Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.
1 tablespoon Earth Balance Buttery Spread
1/2 small onion, diced
8 jumbo scallops
Fresh ground pepper

Add tomato to scallop pan and heat.
1 red tomato, diced

Serve scallops over rice.  Garnish with pea shoots. 
1/2 cup pea shoots

I've seen a number of posts this week for Halloween treats made with foods I like.  Posts providing inspiration included Jamie Oliver, Wild Blueberry organization and Rebel Dietitian. Seems the Greek Yogurt in my Booberry Smoothie sunk. . . but it was still good!

 Happy Halloween!
