Chinese Black Rice, also known as Emperor's Rice, is a glutinous medium-grain rice which turns a silky dark indigo color when cooked. We source all-natural rice with a rich, sweet flavor for our Chinese Black Rice. Its violet-black color is a result of a high concentration of anthocyanin, the same antioxidant responsible for the color of blueberries, acaí berries, eggplant and concord grapes. Interestingly, the color of black rice is caused by a gene mutation. Black rice is considered a superfood thanks to its high level of anthocyanins. It also has more protein and fiber than white, red or brown rice and it’s packed with iron and vitamin E. Black rice has a rich, sweet flavor and a satisfyingly chewy texture. While it is traditionally used in Taiwan and Mainland China as a dessert ingredient, it can easily substitute other varieties of rice in savory dishes. Its color, which changes from black to purple during cooking, makes for a beautifully striking presentation.

Bring 1 cup rice and 1 3/4 cups water to boil in a pot over high heat. Cover, turn heat to low, and simmer until tender, about 25 minutes. Separate grains with a fork before serving.
