Black Rice

Black rice is treasured for its nutritional values, exquisite burgundy-purple colour when cooked, chewy texture and a rich, nutty flavour. It creates a striking contrast in any dish and is often prepared as a dessert, such as black rice pudding.

  • In a small food processor, combine the olive oil and garlic and run until the garlic is well distributed. If you don’t feel like mincing the onion by hand, you can add it in chunks now, but it won’t look as nice.

  • Add the parsley, cilantro, salt, pepper and vinegar and process until minced but with still a bit of texture left in the leaves.

  • Remove from the food processor and mix in the onions and capers.

  • Taste and adjust salt, pepper and vinegar as needed.
