Organic Forbidden® Rice

Legend has it that this ancient grain, referred to as “longevity rice,” was eaten exclusively by the emperors of China to increase health and ensure a long life. This medium-size heirloom rice is treasured for its delicious roasted nutty taste, soft texture, nutritional content and beautiful deep purple color. Lotus Foods has been purchasing our Forbidden® Rice from small family farms in the Black Dragon River region of China's sub-arctic Northeast provinces for over 20 years. This whole grain is a natural source of magnesium, protein and fiber.

Cooking Instructions:
Combine 1 ¾ cups of water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand covered for a few minutes. Fluff and serve. A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio.

Serving Suggestions:
A dramatic presence on any plate, this rice lends itself to:

  • Stir-fries
  • Pilafs
  • Sprinkled in salads and soups
  • Puddings and breakfast cereals
