Have you ever had Black Rice? If not, you should definitely go to Whole Foods or your local health food store (where I found mine) and buy some…it is so delish, and really makes your dish pop with color! Black rice (aka purple rice or Forbidden Black rice-the name i like lol) is a deep black color and usually turns deep purple when cooked. Its dark purple color is primarily due to its anthocyanin content, and lets face it, with the name Forbidden Black Rice it just has to be awesome. For this dish, I served the rice with saucy tomato shrimp on top, and boy was it good. My husband kept asking me what I was making because it smelled so good. Then, when I posted a preview picture to my instagram my husband said ‘make sure you comment that it smells and tastes so much better than the picture’ so here is the recipe:
