Black Forbidden Rice with Edamame

Black forbidden rice is one of my favorite types of rice. It is a whole grain (just like brown rice) that has a wonderfully nutty taste. Plus it looks great! Add some Edamame for a perfect grain-legume combination with excellent flavor and texture. IMG_1099


  • 1 cup black forbidden rice
  • 2.5 - 3 cups of water or broth
  • 1 cup of fresh of frozen edamame


  1. Cook rice in water or broth for about 40 minutes until chewy. If you don't use broth, add salt to your cooking water.
  2. Add edamame a couple of minutes before the rice is done, mix them in.

Enjoy as a side dish with veggies, fish or meat.
