Black rice dressing ideas?

  • j

I've got my self a big bag of black rice. I've never cooked with it before, but have tasted it in cooked form. It seems like one could cook it similar to a white rice like jasmine or basmati. I want to use it to make a dressing to accompany the Thanksgiving turkey. Any interesting ideas?

On another note, has anyone tried making a black rice pudding?

  1. what type of black rice is it? The only reason I asked is there are several varieties out there. You have the South East Asian black rice, wild black rice, and the Korean black rice just to name a few.

    The South East Asian and Korean black rice are more on the starchy end. Where it's almost a sticky rice texture.

      I think it's the Southeast Asia version. I picked it up at the Chinese market. Thanks for the warning. Maybe I'll cook up a plain batch tonight to see how it turns out.
