So..sorry for the late post on this one guys. Obviously this week has not been my friend. Yeah…let just get to the real grub…
I’ve always loved rice. More than pasta. More than crackers. More than bread…not even kidding. It’s just so versatile! Sadly though, rice has always = carbs. Until I found black rice; this new “it” superfood.
+High in antioxidants
+Heart attack preventative
+High nutritional value
Black rice also may prevent other serious illnesses, like Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cancer.
Obviously, this is my new rice of choice (sorry amaretto). Plus, it’s uber easy to make and has a soft, somewhat nutty texture that blends well with a variety of veggies.
I just followed the directions on the back of the bag (I purchased a bag of Nature’s Earthly Choice). It’s basically the normal way to make rice, just with the added step of rinsing the rice before cooking to get some of the “purple” color out. I also made some asparagus using my fav Giada recipe, threw it in with black rice, a bit of salt and pepper, and boom. Lunch is served.
Chow down, friends.
P.S. Hope you have great weekend! I’m headed to a concert in Milwaukee tonight, followed by garage sale hopping, dress fitting, gardening and circuit training on Saturday and my sister’s college graduation Sunday. Busy weekend for me! Enjoy yours, and let’s pray for some sun!
