Black rice, also known as forbidden rice, has a nutty and complex flavor and can be compared to brown and wild rice. It is rich in antioxidants, as is apparent by its deep blackish color due to plant pigments called anthocyanins. Black rice can be eaten with your favorite main meal, or used in whole grain salads and soups. 

1½ cups black rice
1¾ cups water
1 pinches kosher salt
