It’s the spooky season and what higher what to creep out your meals than with Black colouring. You don’t even want any of that synthetic meals colouring.

Effectively the rice does the identical factor; higher but it even turns creamy white sauces a creepy color. What higher for halloween, or simply anytime of the yr in the event you’re me. So apart from giving a cool look to your meals, what else does Black Rice have to supply? Forbidden meals touts their Black Rice as being wealthy in antioxidants, stuffed with protein, excessive in iron and low GI.
When cooked it has barely candy nutty aroma that pairs very well with a creamy garlic sauce. So why prawns?

You don’t need to do something actually completely different for a black rice risotto both. You observe the identical steps, toast your rice, add and scale back your liquid, stir and luxuriate in.
I undoubtedly selected the mistaken bowl to serve this in, my sauce appears skinny however it’s really fairly thick and works nicely with the rice. If you happen to aren’t a fan of prawns you’ll be able to actually change it with hen as nicely. I actually benefit from the flavour of the black rice which provides dimension to the creamy garlic sauce. Undoubtedly don’t be postpone by the purple colouring and miss out on this scrumptious product. Nonetheless, if black rice actually isn’t interesting to you, you may make this recipe with regular Arborio rice, simply watch the cooking instances because it received’t take as lengthy to cook dinner.
