I chanced upon on this tv program 'Healing Galing' that my aunt was watching that BlackRice is good for those with iron deficiency. "Kahit walang ulam" So I thought of including it on my grocery list :)
Black rice is available in all leading supermarket, this vacuum packed cost around P120+
They take a long time to cook, you need to soak it first for 30mins and double the water measure when cooking. They turned into purple color when cooked.
I don't have a fancy recipe for it, I thought I can prepare it with salad or in a veggie wrap. Its nutty taste makes it easy to pair with any kind of veggies.
Aside from vitamins and minerals, black rice is also rich in antioxidants. :)
