Forbidden Rice + Berries

Black rice has been one of my favorite grains for a long time. I love its flavor and texture! I usually use it as a side dish or to make risotto but since it's so versatile this time I decided to turn it into a simple  but delicious breakfast that will give you sustainable energy throughout the day.

This is not a sweet dish at all. To make it a bit sweeter you can add more fruits, maple syrup or even a tbsp.coconut sugar.
