There is white rice that is dyed black, however thats only a visual substitute, I do not think there is any real substitute for black rice.

Yes I think so sorry I was kind of in a rush last time but I always just call it black rice instead of wild rice. I was also looking for a taste sub lol, but thanks for giving me ways to fool the eaters (with squid ink)hehe.

I had never heard of it ... but it sounds interesting. Here's a site I found via google that explains some about it: http://www.templeofthai.com/food/new...september.html

I tried black rice once. Prefer basmati or popcorn rice for that nutty flavor.

Mitch, I don't think there is really any acceptable substitute for wild rice. It is not actually a rice (if I recall correctly) it is something else and therefore no other rice will be a good substitute. I would be interested to learn if there IS a substitute so I am hoping someone with more knowledge comes along to help you out.

So it appears there are two diferent kinds of black rice, one Thai and glutenous and the other Chinese and not glutenous, and neither one is wild rice, which is a grass. Learn something new every day!

Thanks, Michael and HanArt.

OH, and neither one is black, they're both purple!

I'm so confused !
