Healthy Colorful Forbidden Black Rice Salad

1 Comment 31 July 2011

Lately black rice has been making huge headlines on the food scene. What IS black rice? Where has it been all these years????
Well, scientists have just discovered that black rice is a treasure trove of nutrition. Hailed for thousands of years in China as a food for the royals, its benefits lay hidden to us common folk  till now.  A spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting  antioxidants than are found in a spoonful of blueberries, plus the bran within the rice has less sugar, more fiber and an abundance of vitamin E.
As healthy as brown rice is, however, researchers think black rice may be even healthier. They analyzed samples of black rice bran from rice grown in the southern United States and found it possesses higher level of anthocyanins antioxidants than brown rice bran.
So, of course when my gourmet kosher foodie friend Debbie Gindi told me about this unbelievable recipe that her whole gourmet foodie family wiped out in 10 minutes, then I knew that my Jewish Hostess readers would love it. Here goes!

This recipe was tested by our friends over at Healthy Exposures.

Its perfect as a Sunday morning breakfast treat . You can even layer a dozen of these into a breakfast tin or a basket, wrap with cellophane, and bring as a housewarming or a get well gift.

Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe

-1.5 c. Wheat Bran

-1/2 c. Oat Bran

-1/4 c. Rolled Oats

-1/4 c. Spelt Flour

-2 T. A.P. Flour

-1.5 t. Baking Powder

-1 t. Baking Soda

-1/4 t. salt

-1/3 c. Stevia [or sweetener of your choice]

-cinnamon, ground ginger, and nutmeg [i didn’t measure. heh…]

-vanilla extract [i was pretty liberal with it.]

-1 c. soy milk

-1/2 T. vinegar

-1/3 c. unsweetened apple sauce

-1/3 c. maple syrup

-1/4 c. egg substitute

-1/2 – 3/4 c. grated carrots

-crystalized ginger, dates, raisins, additional oats [optional – for mix-ins or topping]

Notes on Ingredients

1. Ratio of brans & oats not exact – I am fairly confident this is close to what I used, but may be a hair off. Additionally, you could use more wheat bran and less oat, and vice versa. The oat bran gives it a great texture, however.

2. WW Flour could likely be used in place of A.P, as well as the Spelt. I wanted to incorporate Spelt flour, and added in some A.P. just because I wasn’t sure if WW would encourage it to be too dense. Baby steps!

3. If you don’t have/dislike maple syrup, I am sure these would rock just as hard with molasses or honey – especially molasses.

4. I used between 1/2 c. and 3/4 c. grated carrots…but I think next time I’ll up the ante and use a whole cup.

1. Preheat oven to 375*. In a liquid measuring cup, add vinegar to milk. Let sit 5 minutes while measuring and combining wheat bran, oat bran, and oats.

2. Add milk & vinegar mixture to bran and oat mixture. Let sit while mixing together applesauce, stevia, egg, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Pour this mixture into bran & milk mixture.

3. Combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in seperate bowl. Then add this and grated carrots to the master bowl.

4. Mix just until moistened. Do not overmix! You can also add in raisins or dates at this point.
5. Think to self “well dang, at least this smells delicious…will it taste this delicious?”
Spoon into greased [okay, sprayed] tins of choice.
5. Pray to the baking gods that you crafted something successful.
Bake for about 20m. It is very easy to underbake these, so be careful and cut one in half before taking them out. I find that the with the oat bran, it actually get s a really nice “crust” when done for a couple minutes longer than completely necessary, anyways!
Makes 8 mini rectangular loaves.
6. Remove and Cool!
