With the morning rush we always prefer to have some dish which can be cooked faster and at the same time it should be healthier too. Cooking Black rice consumes a lot of time as we need to soak them for a minimum of 8 to 10 hours. However, black rice congee is one recipe which can be cooked very fast if the congee powder is prepared in advance. This soup or congee is a combination of black rice, barley, flax seeds roasted and powdered coarsely and cooked along with tossed garlic & spinach. Black rice or forbidden rice contains the lowest number of calories among other rice varieties but has a high amount of nutrients. Barley on the other hand is good for intestine. Flax seeds is high in omega3. Combining all these 3 together into a single dish is beneficial for all age groups. We generally take this soup at least weekly twice as morning breakfast or during dinner. The soup is light and filling for a long time.

Serve Black Rice, Barley & Flax Seeds Congee for a weekday dinner along with Garlic Bread and Savory melon Salad or you can serve it on its own for a healthy breakfast.
