Black rice has more fiber than brown rice and like brown rice, has a mild, nutty taste. Black rice has a deep black/purple and usually turns quite dark purple when cooked. This color comes from something called anthocyanin which is the same thing that makes eggplants purple. It has more antioxidants and more fiber than either white or brown rice, so it can be a healthful choice.
Choosing a good quality black rice is critical. For these experiments, I used a good quality black rice and I found it to work really well.

For the Rice
- 1 cup Full-Fat Coconut Milk from a can
- Place all ingredients for the rice in the inner liner of your Instant Pot or Pressure cooker.
- Cook on High Pressure for 22 minutes, and allow it to release pressure naturally for 15 minutes. Then, release any remaining pressure.
- Open the lid and stir the rice vigorously to break up the rice grains and allow it to leach the starch.
- Slowly start adding the additional coconut milk while still mixing vigorously. As you do this, the rice is giving up its starchy goodness into the coconut milk and making a beautifully yummy concoction.
- Yoy may not need all the coconut milk, but let it sit for 5-10 minutes before you decide that, as the rice continues to soak up the coconut milk.
- This is a good time to taste and see if it’s sweet enough for you. You might have to eat a lot of it to decide that.
- Once the coconut milk is absorbed you’re ready to eat!
