Bacon Black Rice with Sun Dried Tomato Butter
~ Mary ~
Ouch – this was a tough one to photograph, but I couldn’t not bring it to you because it’s my first Royal Foodie Joust with The Leftover Queen and Ravishing Rice is the topic for the next monthly mingle at Edible Garden. Plus, plus it’s got Chicago Bacon in it! Need I say more?
The black rice is something I usually use for a Thai black rice pudding, but for the challange thought I’d break things up a bit. I’m certain the dish would taste just as great with Jasmine Rice. AND it might photograph better too! Below is the recipe for the rice and click on Sun Dried Tomato Butter to get that recipe.
Bacon Black Rice
Saute until crispy:
1 Cup Cubed Bacon - if you’ve got Chicago Bacon – then use it! the smoky flavor is very good here!
Add and lightly brown:
1 Cup Diced Onion
2 Tbsp Chopped Garlic
Add and toast:
1 Cup Black Rice
2 1/2 – 3 Cups Water
Let simmer until soft – add more water if neccessary.
Serve and top with Sun Dried Tomato Butter
