Black rice is indigenous to Southern Asia and an excellent source of iron, vitamin E, fiber, and flavonoid antioxidants called anthocyanins. In Chinese medicine, it’s considered a good blood tonifier. Black rice has been consumed for centuries in China. In fact, because of its rich nutritional value, legend has it that it was reserved solely for the emperors’ consumption. As a result, it was granted the names “emperor’s rice” and “forbidden rice.”
Enjoy this simple pudding warm or cold. As always, feel free to be creative in the kitchen!Read More›
