Black is the new green. When it comes to food. So says the raw food guru David Wolfe. Black rice is an anti-inflammatory food with as many antioxidants as blueberries and blackberries and 6 times more than brown rice. During the Ming Dynasty, this rice was reserved for the emperors so that only they could benefit, from what they called, Forbidden Rice. Treat yourself to this gourmet non-dairy risotto, or woo your significant other for a fancy vegan date night in.
