Black rice is a highly nutritious grain that is loaded with iron and powerful antioxidants. In ancient China, only the emperor was allowed to eat this "forbidden rice." In my attempt to add this super food to my family's diet, I came up with this rice pudding recipe. It's really easy to make and quite delicious. A sweet treat that is good for you too!

How to Make Luscious Coconut Black Rice Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Place rice and water in a medium size bowl. Cover and place in a warm place for 12 hours, or overnight.
  2. Using a fine sieve, strain the rice.
  3. Place rice, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and raisins in a small saucepan. Stir and bring to a gentle boil, turn down the heat to low, and cook until the rice is creamy, about 10 minutes.
  4. While the rice is cooking, combine 1 cup of coconut milk, palm sugar, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan. Turn heat to low.
  5. In a medium size bowl, combine remaining coconut milk with tapioca. Pour into the coconut- sugar mixture and whisk until it thickens and starts to bubble, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly.
  6. Place cooked rice in a serving dish and top it with the prepared coconut milk and sugar mixture. Garnish with chopped mangos and shredded coconut. Serve warm.
  7. Notes: Forbidden rice, also known as Chinese black rice, is packaged by Lotus Foods and sold at Whole Foods and many gourmet grocers.
