Chinese Red Rice

Red Rice is that hidden secret the southern states have been keeping from us all! It is not only a better source of fiber compared to brown rice, it also has 10 times the antioxidants of brown rice. For beginners, red rice has a nutty flavor and takes a little bit longer to cook compared to brown rice. In addition, it has the ability to control hunger due its rich fiber content. Combine this super food with your everyday meals and keep the dietitians away!
