Ingredients: Sweet Black Rice
- Sweet Black Thai (Purple) rice has a nutty flavor that is similar to wild rice. Often traditional Thai cooks use this rice in desserts, but it can be just as delicious in savory dishes as well. Simply pre-soak this rice, then steam or boil to cook it to perfection. This rice has a dark purple color and when cooked does bleed, so it is best to pair it with other dark colored ingredients.
- Recipe:3 tbsp. veg. oil, 2 cups water or broth, 1 cup rice and salt & pepper to taste. Place rice and oil in large saucepan. Fry on med. high heat stirring constantly until lightly browned. Carefully add the liquid. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer 35-40 minutes. Do not stir. Turn heat off and let steam for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
