Have you ever had Venus rice?
I really like this kind of rice.
It's a type of medium-grain Italian rice
that is known for its natural black color and its aroma.
The aroma is more noticeable while the rice is cooking and is similar to the smell of baked bread...
...in case you wonder I am a bread lover too.
This rice is loaded with protein and
minerals (especially iron), which are retained in the grains due to the careful methods used in removing the husks.
The cooking time for Venus rice is about 45minutes.
Venus black rice is excellent in soups, blended with vegetables, paired with fish or meat, or served as a side dish.
I will be sharing a recipe (or two) on how to use this rice.
So get your wooden spoon for risotto ready.
