Organic Chinese Black Rice is high in fiber and rich in iron and amino acids. It is also known as the Emperors Rice.




Organic Chinese Black Rice is also known as the Emperor’s Rice or Forbidden Rice. Because of its deep black color, chewy texture and distinctive nutty flavor, this heirloom grain was so rare that it was reserved for emperors only. Popular in China, Indonesia and Thailand, Chinese black rice is high in fiber and rich in iron and amino acids. 
Chinese Black Rice turns to a rich deep purple when cooked, making it a striking choice when used in salads, desserts and in recipes like Cashew Chicken and Black Rice or Black Rice Risotto. Cook black rice with coconut milk and sugar to make a beautiful and unique rice pudding, garnish with fresh mango and kiwi. Keep Chinese Black Rice in your pantry and use as a healthy, naturally gluten free substitute for pasta or white rice.
How to Prepare Chinese Black Rice
Rinse the black rice in a bowl in cold water. Rub the rice with your hands. Let it sit for a few minutes and then strain the rice.
Repeat this process 2-3 times. Rinsing removes surface starches and prevents the rice from clumping. 
Place 1 cup of black rice and 2 cups of cold water in a pot. Bring to a boil. Then cover the pot and reduce to simmer for 30 minutes.
Beef, chicken or vegetable stock can be substituted for water to give the rice a richer flavor.
Turn off the heat and let sit for 15 minutes
