Black Rice Risotto : Black rice has the same antioxidants as blueberries. The grain is loaded with anthocyanin, the antioxidant responsible for the inky blue color of blueberries and acai, and it has a toasted nutty flavor

Carrot Rice - fragrant basmati rice sauteed with carrots, onions, fresh ginger, peanuts, and cilantro. I used brown basmati rice and also used both peanuts and cashews. I also skipped the cilantro. Fragrant and a nice change from plain rice.
