Recipe: Forbidden Rice Noodles with Scallions and Shiitakes

This Forbidden Rice noodle salad makes a great side dish or can be served as a larger portion with protein such as shrimp, chicken or tofu. What makes forbidden rice extra special? Its unique purple hue contains an exceptional amount of antioxidants as compared to white or brown rice.  To keep this recipe allergy-free and lower in sodium, it uses coconut aminos in place of soy sauce or tamari to give it its umami flavor.
