What we're cooking right now

Forbidden Rice Krispy Squares

Ingredients:
- 2 C canola oil
- 1.5 C Forbidden Rice or black rice
- 10oz bag of mini marshmallows
- 3 TBL butter

In a large saucepan heat your oil over medium high heat. Add the rice when oil is hot and stir to cover rice with oil. After about 30 seconds, the oil will start to bubble and the rice will begin to crackle. Some grains will puff and the white insides of the grain will be exposed. Not all grains will puff and that’s ok, cook stirring for 5-6 minutes until rice is crispy. The exterior of the grains will look a little bumpy.

Remove the puffed rice from the oil, by pouring through a sieve, and put on a sheet pan lined paper towel to cool completely. Pat grains with paper towel to get excess oil off them.

Grease an 8x8" baking pan with butter or cooking spray. Heat a large saucepan over medium low heat. Add butter and melt completely. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until they have melted. Add puffed rice and stir until combined. Take off heat and transfer rice mixture to your greased pan. To spread evenly in the pan, cover the mixture with parchment paper and pushing the sticky mixture to the corners of the pan. Let cool and enjoy!
