Black Rice & Bone Broth

Black Rice & Bone Broth recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

Black rice! Have you ever tried it? It’s a whole grain rice rich in B-vitamins and antioxidants. The colourful outer layer of black rice is actually a deep, eggplant-like purple created by compounds called anthocyanins, the same antioxidants that give grapes and blueberries their distinctive hue. Research has linked anthocyanins to a wide variety of health claims, including increased longevity, cardiovascular health, cancer prevention and dementia. 

For added nutrients, I cooked the black rice with 2 cups of bone broth for the first cup of rice, and a cup of water for each additional cup. Once cooked, I fluffed the rice with steamed spinach and served it with soft boiled eggs and beets. Enjoy!
