Health benefits of black rice and its bran: Should you soak grains in yogurt?

See also

Scientists have been studying the health benefits of black rice as compared with brown, white, mahogany, or red rice. With black rice, which is a small grain, you can cook it the same way you cook any other whole grain: Two parts of water to one part of rice. That's one cup of black rice to two cups of water. You also could cook the black rice in vegetable or chicken broth. You may wish to check out the site, "Black Rice Beats Brown When It Comes To Its Health Benefits."

What else would you add to the black rice? When the water is absorbed in the same time it takes to cook other grains such as brown rice, just add chopped cooked vegetables, cooked and peeled shrimp, chunks of canned salmon, sliced tempeh, or any other foods you want to add to the black rice other than more grains.

Also try black rice pudding by boiling the rice and a 1/4 cup of raisins and 1/4 cup of goji berries in water until it's absorbed, and then adding creamy almond milk or coconut milk. Serve warm or chilled with coconut cream on top or Greek yogurt whipped with a tablespoon of organic creamed honey. Savory black rice?
