Combine the midnight grains, 1 cup (2 cups) water, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until grains are tender and water is absorbed, 20 to 22 minutes. Leave grains covered, off heat, until ready to serve.

Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and minced ginger and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add sliced bell pepper, sliced carrot, sugar snap peas, and a pinch of salt, and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
Halve the avocado(s), remove the pit(s), and slice the flesh. Halve the lime(s), juice one half (1 lime), and cut one half (1 lime) into wedges. Drizzle lime juice over the sliced avocado and sprinkle with salt and smoked nori spice.
