Prep time

Cook time




  • Rice
  • 1 cup black rice
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • Sweetener of choice, to taste
  • Roasted Rhubarb
  • 1 bunch rhubarb, stalks trimmed and cut into 3–4cm batons
  • 4 tbsp sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tbsp orange juice (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  • Place the black rice and coconut milk in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce heat to a bare simmer and cook, covered for 35–40 mins or until softened.
  • Sweeten to taste using preferred sweetener (I used a few drops of liquid stevia).
  • If required, add a touch of extra coconut milk to bring the rice to a lovely creamy consistency.
  • Toss the roasted rhubarb ingredients together in a bowl, then spread out in a single layer on a baking tray and bake for 10–15 mins.
  • Serve the rice with a luscious dollop of coconut yoghurt and rhubarb on top.
