Black! Josie calls it purple and many people call it "forbidden rice". You can see already how kid friendly this rice can be. Have a child who likes to go against the grain, how could they resist "forbidden rice"? Have a child who loves purple, what could be more fun than purple rice? One of the reasons I love our food buying club is being able to try new foods which my friends already like. I've been wanting to buy black rice for a while and then my friend, Sarah, bought some through our buying club and I went in on a few pounds. We finally cooked it this weekend. I put it off because we don't have a rice cooker and I wasn't sure how long to put it in the pressure cooker, but we just did the longer stove top way without the pressure cooker while we were out at the park. I'm hooked and the kids ate it up. We served the rice with sauteed beet greens from our friendly local farmer, Greg. Baked tofu, tahini sauce, and Cholula topped it all off.
