Nature's Earthly Choice All Natural Black Rice Gluten Free Description

  • Gluten-Free
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • Kosher
  • Good Source of Protein
  • Rich in Antioxidants

At Nature’s Earthly Choice we really do search the globe seeking interesting and healthy foods for you and your family. Black Rice is one of our new favorites. Black Rice is a fantastic alternative to white and/or brown rice because it is loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin E and fiber, and has a delicious, slightly sweet, nutty taste. The rice is a deep, rich black color when raw due to the covering of dark bran. It becomes a beautiful shade of purple when cooked. Like many of the dark fruits, Black Rice is loaded with anthocyanin antioxidants, substances that are showing promise for fighting heart disease, and other diseases. One serving of Black Rice has as many antioxidants as a serving of cultivated blueberries, without the sugar.

 

Black Rice is easy to prepare and possibly more versatile than either white and/or brown rice. You can use this rice in everything from stir-frys, pilaf, risottos, to exotic desserts.

 

Black Rice is truly an heirloom grain, historically reserved exclusively for the Asian royalty. Today, we are helping make this great food available to you.


Directions

Rinse rice under cold water before cooking. (Some color will bleed upon rinsing. This is normal). Bring 2 cups of water to a vigorous boil. Add 1 cup of black rice and cover. Lower heat and simmer for about 35 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.

Wild Rice Pilaf with Cranberries and Nuts

You could use basmati. You could use jasmine. But to really take your pilaf to the next level, wouldn’t you rather use a more exotic grain? Adding a bit of boldness to your table, this unconventional pilaf features black and wild rice. Toss the grains with pecans, almonds and cranberries to make a light lunch or side dish even less-adventurous eaters will devour.

Wild Rice Pilaf with Cranberries and Nuts

Wild Rice Pilaf with Cranberries and Nuts

Ingredients

½ cup wild rice
½ cup black rice
2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (or homemade)
¼ cup slivered almonds
¼ cup pecans, chopped
Cranberries, fresh or dried (if dried, use juice sweetened NOT the sugar kind)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1-2 tsp. dried rosemary
2-3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. In a large pot, bring broth to a boil. Decrease heat to low and add wild and black rice. Cook covered for approximately 30-40 minutes, just until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is fluffy.
  2. Stir in almonds, pecans, cranberries, pepper, rosemary and oil. (Be careful not to over-stir. Pilaf will become too gummy.)
