Pistachios underscore the subtle sweetness of black rice. Known as “forbidden” rice because it was originally reserved for the emperors of ancient China, black rice has a tender, slightly chewy texture and is available in most supermarkets.

Your recipe looks good and will defenitely try it! I knew forbidden rice more than 10 years ago in Genoa, Italy. There it is known as 'riso venere' because it is grown in Porto Venere, a small Ligurian town. In the restaurant where I tried it, they prepare it with foie gras. I also make a delicious and very simple salad with forbidden rice which I published in www.gastronomiaignasimaestrecasanovas.com/receta-arroz-negro-esposa-ignasi-maestre-casanovas
Never though of combining rice with pistachio, this sure sounds intersting.
