Black rice, or forbidden rice, is nutty, delicious, and rich with nutrients like antioxidants and fiber. It's an excellent side dish or addition to grain bowls, salads, and more!



  • Combine the rice, water, and olive oil in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and let it sit, covered, for 10 more minutes. Fluff with a fork.
