Forbidden Rice RecipeForbidden rice, or black rice, is so named because it was said to be the Emperor’s rice in China, and therefore nobody else was permitted to eat it. It is an heirloom vegetable with high nutritional value and it includes iron. Like brown rice, it has a mild, nutty taste and may turn a deep  purple when it is cooked. Forbidden rice has been shown to supply important amino acids and has become popular in the world of natural food. It is high in antioxidants and has fiber and Vitamin E in it naturally.

When Dr. Oz went on his show and proclaimed that forbidden rice was the best, and that naturally you should stop eating every other food on the market that had previously been declared to be a superfood (including quinoa, chia seeds, blueberries, acai berries, raspberry ketones, and Sour Patch Kids) his loyal fans got to work and instantly threw out all other foods they were hoarding, went onto the forbidden rice diet and transformed caterpillar-to-butterfly-like into gorgeours supermodels who could shoot lightning from their eyes. And that was just the men.

Notes and Special Information

Special note: As with any recipies, black rice and forbidden rice have to be cooked correctly in order to bring out the best flavors. Nobody wants to get the impression that the Emperor ate sticky, burnt, or watery rice. When in doubt, just add butter. For more snark, come see our Forbidden Rice website
