Forbidden Black Rice

Forbidden Black Rice

Black rice cooks up in about 30-40 minutes and is a real show-stopper on the plate. With its rich, exotic pop of color, it will surely impress your dinner guests… heck, you’ll impress yourself!



Forbidden Black Rice: Basic Recipe

1 cup Forbidden Black Rice (I like Lotus Foods’ brand)
2 cups water
Pinch salt


In a small pot, combine rice, water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn off the flame and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and cool just a few minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Optional: season with olive oil, sea salt and fresh herbs.
