I picked up some black rice at the market last week. It's referred to as Forbidden Black Rice. Legend says it was originally grown only for the emperors of China.
Some term it the new superfood! "Just a spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting anthocyanin antioxidants than are found in a spoonful of blueberries, but with less sugar and more fiber and vitamin E antioxidants," said Dr Zhimin Xu at the Louisiana State University.
"Like fruits, "black rice" is rich in anthocyanin antioxidants, substances that show promise for fighting heart disease, cancer, and other diseases."
I decided to make some for lunch! I cooked the rice in our rice cooker and within 30 minutes the nutty fragrance had my attention. Once cooked the rice turns into a rich deep purple that offsets bright colors magnificently! Sushi seemed like the next right step. Before I knew it I was rolling, slicing and noshing on the most satisfying vegan sushi yet, I call it forbidden sushi! For only those seeking shall find this hearty and nutritious one-of-a-kind recipe! ;)
