It’s time to shake things up! Organic Ancient Black Rice blends black rice and volcano rice to create a stunning product! The nutty, firm texture of black rice is paired with the unique elegance of volcano rice: a blend of brown rice, whole grain red rice, and lightly milled red rice (some of the husk is removed in this process). This extraordinary combination of short-grain rice’s makes a delicious side dish, salad, or stuffing for vegetables and poultry.

CULINARY TWIST: How to cook it and how to eat it!
Organic Ancient Black Rice Blend uses a standard 2:1 ratio – 2 cups of liquid for every 1 cup of rice. This rice blend cooks in approximately 30 minutes. Your cooked rice is a blank canvas and base for endless flavor combinations and opportunities. From a simple side dish to a wonderfully exotic-looking salad, ancient black rice blend leaves room for adventure! One of our favorite ways to showcase this unique rice is a recipe we like to call Sushi Salad! We combine rice with julienned cucumbers, slivers of avocado, tomatoes, and scallions in a soy sauce/rice vinegar/sesame seed oil vinaigrette. We then top the salad with a fresh piece of quickly seared tuna. Garnish with fresh cilantro and black and white sesame seeds. Fresh tuna can be replaced with the fish of your choice or with poultry, seafood, and vegetables.
