Black Rice - More Antioxidants than Blueberries + Superfood Black Rice Pudding

Black Rice – More Antioxidants than the Beloved Blueberry! There is a lot of talk about how black foods are now the new green superfoods. For me the greens will always take pride of place but it is hard to ignore the growing list of black superfoods power-packed with nutritional benefits. Some examples include black chia seeds, black lentils, black beans, reishi mushrooms, black sesame seeds and of course black rice!

The Scoop on Black Rice Black rice, also known as purple rice or forbidden rice, it is loaded with iron, 18 amino acids, fibre, vitamins and more. The bran cover on black and brown rice (which is removed to make white rice) allows these healthy properties to be retained. One differentiating factor black rice has over its white and brown rice brothers, is it contains anthocyanin antioxidants, which gives the rice its superfood credibility.

History of Black Rice In the West we are only starting to learn about the benefits of black rice, however in China black rice has always been considered the superior grain. It was known as the finest available grain and was only served to the emperor. This is why black rice is often referred as ‘forbidden rice’ as the general public were not allowed to consume it and if they did there would be serious consequences. Health Benefits of Black Rice Blueberries have always been deemed one of the benchmark superfoods due to their extremely high antioxidant levels. However, according to a study conducted by the Department of Food Science at Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, one spoonful of black rice bran contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than an equivalent spoonful of blueberries. Furthermore, it was found that black rice has less sugar, more fibre and more vitamin E than blueberries. Anthocyanin is the pigment found in dark blue, red and purple foods. Plants rich in anthocyanins include acai, blueberries, bilberries, cranberries, raspberries, cherries, eggplants and black rice, to name just a few. Anthocyanin antioxidants have shown positive results in fighting heart disease, cancer, and obesity. Anthocyanins may also offer anti-inflammatory and anti-viral benefits.

We love Forbidden Black Rice available here Superfood Black Rice Pudding Gluten Free, Low GI, High in Antioxidants This dish can be served as a dessert - it goes particularly well with Thai food or Indonesian food, as the coconut and banana flavours tie in nicely. I have also served it for brunch.

I've added chia seeds, black sesames, coconut products and of course black rice to to maximize the superfood benefits (available at the Nourishing Hub).

Serves 4 - 5 2 Cups of Forbidden Black Rice 1 ½ Cups of Water ¾ Cup of Coconut Sugar 3 Medium bananas or 2 large Mangos if they are in Season 1 – 2 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds (optional) 1 – 2 Tablespoons of Black Sesame seeds (optional) 1 Can of Coconut Milk (270mls) 1 Cup of Ceres Coconut Flakes

Add rice and water to a saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Cover and reduce to a simmer for 20 – 30 minutes.

Peel bananas and slice lengthways and then in small chunks (about 1/2cms pieces). Add chopped bananas, coconut sugar, chia seeds, sesame seeds and 3 tablespoons of coconut milk (ensure can is shaken well before using) to the pot of rice and gently warm for a few minutes. Ensure bananas (or chopped mangos if you are using) don’t mash in the process. Spoon rice mixture into individual serving dishes (I use glasses) and then add 1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut milk (depending on your preference) and then sprinkle with about a tablespoon of Ceres shredded coconut pieces and a sprinkling of coconut sugar on top. Serve warm. Enjoy!
