Cool Salad on a Hot Day

Leave a comment

I actually wasn’t planning on posting this, but after it was made, it was so delicious, I had to share. As an assignment for my Holistic Nutrition study, I had to find a new grain with which to cook, and develop a recipe. I quickly found forbidden rice at Whole Foods and I’m glad I did. It is a dark black rice that has a substantial texture and a deeper, nuttier taste than other types of rice. I decided to give it a Mediterranean flavor and the result was dang tasty. And it’s super quick and easy to make. Plus black rice is loaded with antioxidants as well as anthocyanins, (responsible for the dark pigmentation of the rice) which help to reduce risk of heart attack. Happy Health!

* My culinary posts are meant to be guidelines, not recipes. They are different from what you would usually find in a cookbook, because I think cooking should be inspired and new every time you do it. If you like heat, add a sh**load of cayenne or jalapenos to one of my recipes. If my guideline calls for cilantro but cilantro tastes like soap to you, leave it out. When I cook, I get a buzz from the thrill of creation. The same can happen to you.
