Being an Asian I will and can not ever dismiss rice out of my diet. I just absolutely LOVE it! White pandan, Jasmine, Japanese, Sticky or Black rice, you name it... I love'm all! They all have something unique and I think it's an underestimated ingredient these days. I get it that people want to watch their intake of carbs but giving up rice?!? Uhm… how about NO, that shit ain’t happening in my world ;D
This is a dish I often make in times when I know I’m too busy to prep myself a meal every day. It’s easy because I can eat it cold and just make a big batch and fill up a bowl whenever I feel like eating. I never get bored by it even if I eat it 3 to 4 days in a row. Yes people, that’s how much I love blackrice :O
When I do find the time to sit down for a proper meal I add some lemongrass beef kebab to it or when I don't feel like eating meat I just grill some Tempeh or Tofu to combine this dish with. All good!!
