INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the grains

Add the midnight grains, 1 cup (2 cups) water, and a pinch of salt to 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.

Prepare the produce

Deseed and thinly slice the red bell pepper(s). Peel and thinly slice the carrot(s). Peel and mince the garlic and ginger.

3
Stir-fry the vegetables

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 red bell pepper, sliced carrot, sugar snap peas, and a pinch of salt, and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

4
Prepare the nori avocado

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. Pour lime juice over the sliced avocado and sprinkle with salt and smoked nori spice.
