Black Rice Pilaf

This pilaf is hearty, healthy and provides striking visual contrast when served next to a wide variety of proteins, from chicken, beef or game meats to fish or roasted vegetables.

  • ½ cup finely minced Fennel Bulb
  • 1/2 cup finely minced Onion
  • 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • ¾ cup Chinese Black Rice
  • 1 sprig Fresh Thyme
  • 1 ½ cups Stock (Vegetable or Chicken) or Water
  • 4 tbsp chopped Fresh Chives



Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.


Melt the butter in a deep, oven-safe pot with the fennel bulb & onion.

Saute the vegetables until they soften & turn translucent.

Add the thyme sprig, rice, and stock or water. Bring the liquid to a boil, then cover the pot and move it to the oven.

Roast for 18-20 minutes, until the rice is tender.

Remove the cooked rice from the oven, stir in the chives & serve.
