Mmmm, love black rice. It takes a bit longer to cook, and it does stain any food it comes into contact with a nice purple, so I cook it separately and serve it on the side.

I did just read an article about black rice that said the purple color is the same compound that makes blueberries so good for you, so eat up!!

I like to do a brightly colored stir fry, lots of red and green peppers for example, or a very light colored dish (coconut milk, onions, cabbage, white chicken) to serve with black rice. The color contrast is nice.

The darker or blacker a food is the healthier it is.

Black quinoa is yummy!!

I like to make a famous Thai dessert with it. It is sort of a rice pudding make with coconut milk and sugar. There are many different ways to prepare the rice which will give you different textures in the finished product. I recommend soaking it, like you would with beans or peas overnight before cooking it. Don't try and mix it with other rices unless you want a dull gray looking rice dish. It really loses its color in the water and turns everything dark. Kinda like washing your whites with a new pair of black jeans

Thanks for your ideas, I just got some at an Orlando, Fl market. I had read about a recipe using coconut milk & cardamon & sauted bananas & pineapple.
I'll look for the black quinoa, I hadn't heard of it.

I notice the recipe uses brown rice. Did you mean black glutenous rice? I haven't gotten around to test cooking the black or sweet rice, yet. The recipe sounds very nice (except for the bananas--I was "over-fed" bananas as a child and hate the smell and texture of bananas--the smell makes me gag--doesn't help I was in a car accident in my 20s and broke my nose...for months everything smelt like bananas...and I can't stomach the texture. Supposedly this aversion to the scent of bananas is a genetic defect--3% [or something like that] of the population reacts to the smell of bananas--three of my friends are also "banana-haters"). Having said that, the only way I'll eat bananas is in the Beaver Club's Banana Bread (a restaurant in Montreal--for which I have the recipe, but guess I can't share it--it is to die-for banana bread--that from a banana hater). I like wild rice for breakfast, so would probably like this as well (minus the bananas).

PS--my brother and I took a 24-hour road trip in 2009. As soon as he put his backpack with his food in the van, I smelt bananas. (The look he gave me when I asked if he had bananas in his "lunch" was priceless.) I made him eat his three bananas in the parking lot of his apartment before we could hit the road. There was no way I was going to (a) drive 24 hours with the smell of bananas assaulting my nostrils and (b) have banana peels in the van until the next stop. He ate his bananas and then we hit the road. He didn't buy bananas for the road trip home. Now, I like to eat pickled herring on road trips, but that's another story.

I love purple. I'm going to taste test the black rice today.
