  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp fresh oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried garlic
  • 1 cup cooked non glutinous Forbidden black rice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • Pinch of dried basil (to garnish)


  • In a saucepan combine vegetable broth and tomatoes and boil for couple of minutes or until tomatoes are tender and soft. Remove the pan from the flame and let it cool.
  • Once the broth cools down blend it smooth in a blender.
  • In a nonstick pan heat oil and add fresh oregano and garlic. Immediately add cooked black rice and saute well until black rice is well coated with the herbs.
  • Now add the blended broth and let it boil for a minute.
  • Now add rest of the ingredients (except basil) and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  • Turn off the flame and garnish with dried basil and serve warm.


  • While cooking black rice follow the package instructions except do not add salt to reduce the sodium content of this recipe.
  • For oil free version - simply skip the oil in step 3. Just combine all the ingredients to the blended soup and cook for few minutes and serve immediately.
