This vegetable stir-fry is pretty in pink, thanks to an extraordinary variety of rice—with legendary origins. The story goes that a Madagascan farmer spotted a couple grains of rice in an empty bag that he had bought for storage. When he planted and nurtured them, these distinctive grains yielded an abundance of incredible pink rice, which spread across the land. Here, its bright almost fruity flavor echoes that of agave nectar to put the sweet in sweet-and-sour.
