Forbidden Rice with Black Beans

Hi everyone! Today's Vegan MoFo prompt is: Goth Day – Blues, purples, blacks? Let your dark side shine, so I made forbidden rice with black beans. Zach said it looked like "dinner from the Black Lagoon," but it was really good! I cooked the rice in vegetable broth, and added salt & pepper to the black beans.


Here's Leela, fitting perfectly inside her own personal sunbeam...



Peace. :)

  1. I've never had forbidden rice. Is it similar to wild rice? Your meal definitely looks Goth!! Cute Leela, my kitties chase the sunbeams too!

    1. Thanks! :D It's a shorter grain than wild rice and apparently it has a bunch of antioxidants. It's good, but of the two, I actually prefer the taste & texture of wild rice.

  2. Nice! I originally wanted to do something with black rice and black beans for the black and white day, but they ended up looking more brown. But I definitely had black rice on my goth dinner.

    1. Yeah, when I opened the can of beans, they looked reddish and I was super confused because I've had black beans before that looked a bit more black. Your goth dinner looked great! :)
