Black rice is also known as “forbidden rice.” It’s a whole grain with an excellent nutritional profile.
I’ve just run across a version on FatFree Vegan Cooking made in the pressure cooker — it only takes 90 minutes, as opposed to the version below, which takes 2 hours.
1 C black rice
3 C water
1/2 t salt
1/2 C sugar
1 14-oz can coconut milk, shaken well
Bring rice, water, and 1/4 t salt to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Simmer on low, covered with a tight lid, for about 45 minutes. Stir in the sugar, another 1/4 t salt, and 1-1/2 C of the coconut milk and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally for about a half hour. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, stirring it occasionally. Serve in bowls with additional coconut milk drizzled over each serving. Serves 4.
