Sweet Black Breakfast Rice with Berries
1 cup wild black rice (long grain variety), soaked overnight
1 14 oz. can of coconut milk
1/2 cup of water (more if needed)
1/2 cup of mixed berries (I used blueberries and raspberries)
1/4 cup of shredded coconut (if you have time, it’s really nice to toast this lightly!)
1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup
A pinch of smoked black sea salt (to top the dish with)
A pinch of Kosher salt
- Bring black rice, water, coconut milk, a pinch of Kosher salt, and vanilla pod to a boil, and then lower and cover while simmering for 30 to 35 minutes (if you soaked the rice) and closer to 50-60 minutes if you didn’t soak the rice.
- Take the rice off the heat and top with shredded coconut, berries, maple syrup, and black sea salt.
