1 Cup Black Rice Like: Lotus Foods Forbidden Rice

1 3/4 Cups Water
1/4 Cup Almond Milk (or other milk alternative)
1/2 Tsp Maple Syrup or Raw honey
1 Cup Fruit of choice (Nectarine, Blackberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Blueberries)

1 pinch Celtic Sea Salt, 1 cinnamon quill, 1 star anise, orange zest from 1 orange

Top with dry roasted almonds (chopped), toasted buckwheat, toasted pepita seeds, white and dark sesame seeds


Follow Instructions for preparing Black Rice on package. Combine 1 ¾ cups of water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Remove from heat. Let stand covered for a few minutes. Fluff and serve. A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio.

Once the black rice is done, you can put it into containers for lunches, or have for breakfast a few times a week.
To prepare the breakfast bowl, if reheating, add 1/3-1/2 cup of the black rice to a pot with the almond milk (or milk alternative) and re-heat on medium-low.

If you are making this in the morning, after the black rice is cooked, add 1/3 – 1/2 cup of rice to a bowl and top with almond milk like you would oatmeal.

Add 1tsp maple syrup, top with berries and enjoy! You could also add a vanilla protein powder to this to give it a bit more protein.
