Forbidden Rice Sez: “Eat Me”

I’ve been wanting to try forbidden rice for a while. Forbidden rice is a variety of rice that seems to come from China that’s known for it’s deep purple — almost black — color.

The rice has a typically mild flavor, although it’s slightly nuttier than typical rice.

Forbidden rice is reportedly higher in the same blue-tinted antioxidants found in blueberries and other blue/purple plants, except in higher quantities.
