A breakfast bowl with a difference. I’m black rice obsessed which you may or may not have noticed depending on whether or not you watch my Instagram Stories! I eat it EVERY day and have done for the last few months. I was all about jasmine rice, with my #teamwhiterice , but black rice is a game changer. Slightly chewy, fluffy when you cook it for a good hour which I’m sure is “incorrect” but it’s how I like it!
This was the first time I had it with anything other than chicken, roast veg. and flax oil. Chocolate Oatly milk mixed with Pulsin chocolate pea protein, cold pre cooked black (also known as forbidden rice), warmed from frozen blueberries with all their oozing juices, roast cashew butter, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, some walnuts and pecans, some coconut flakes; basically all the toppings my heart desires. Plenty of carbs, fats and protein in the mix to satisfy every angle of my appetite.
You can throw this bowl together in minutes if you’re like me and have a batch of rice ready to go for a few days running in the fridge at all times. If you prefer you can heat the rice up in the microwave or in pan with some coconut oil to crisp it up around the edges. The contrast of cold protein milk and hot rice or even just the warm blueberries is divine.
You simply mix the chocolate pea protein with the chocolate milk and you’re good to assemble. Couldn’t be simpler! Now #teamblackrice
