Black rice and blueberries

with one comment

Back from Whole Foods where I bought black rice (aka “forbidden” rice) and frozen wild blueberries, along with several small containers of different types of yogurt: sheep’s milk, goat’s milk, regular. All non-fat, some vanilla, some plain.

Plan it to cook rice, and then when I want dessert, put in a bowl some rice, blueberries, and yogurt. 🙂

UPDATE: Actual recipe:

1/3 c. cooked black (“forbidden”) rice
3/4 c. frozen wild blueberries
3/4 c. yogurt
Flavoring

I’ve made it twice now (lunch and dinner).

First batch I used sheep’s milk blueberry yogurt. Tasty, but I shouldn’t get the yogurts with fruit because they add sugar.

Second batch even better: goat’s milk vanilla yogurt with a little maple syrup and about 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I stirred this batch together more (to work in the cinnamon), and it was a good idea.

For the time being, I’ll end each lunch and dinner with this. Great way to get the starch and fruit and extremely tasty, not to mention high in anti=oxidants. I’ll be switching to plain old nonfat yogurt once I get through the little special yogurts I got for fun.

The reason for the sudden interest in black rice is found at the link.
