Italian Black Rice Vegetable Bowl: An Enticing Recipe

A simple vegetarian bowl with nutty and nutritious Italian black rice and vegetables. This easy-to-make recipe gets ready in just 30 minutes. It’s a cross between an Asian short-grain black rice and an Italian variety. It cooks at about the same time as brown rice, and it fills the kitchen with a buttery-nutty smell while it cooks, kind of like basmati. Be sure to cook this healthy, delicious recipe on the go!


1 cup of Italian black rice

Kosher salt

Extra virgin olive oil

Juice of half a lemon

Fresh mozzarella, sliced or torn into pieces

Roasted red bell peppers, sliced

Sliced mini cucumbers

Roasted cubed eggplant and or baby zucchini

Fresh basil, parsley, and arugula


Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add a teaspoon of salt and rice. Cook until the rice is just tender, with a tiny bit of bite in the centre of the grain; 25 - 35 minutes. Drain.

Put the rice in a large bowl and pour over a few tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice. Season with more salt to taste.

Serve warm in bowls topped with mozzarella and garnished with your choice of fresh or roasted vegetables and greens.


Buon Appetito!!
