Guest Post for Elaine: Swiss Chard Rolls with Black Rice in a Vegetable Coconut Broth
Many of you know that Elaine of Foodbod has created a fun series of posts called “What Would You Feed Me”. If you or your dinner guests are vegan or can’t eat gluten, you should run to her site, here. Elaine has challenged all of the guest bloggers to create a vegetarian, sugar free and gluten free meal for her. Each week, Elaine’s feast is growing! The table is piling high with sumptuous, healthy dishes that have us all drooling.
Here is what I prepared for Elaine. Colourful swiss chard leaves are steamed and then filled with a rich, creamy black rice and coconut milk combination. They are served in a wildly fragrant coconut broth accented with ginger and anise. I really hope that Elaine loves the dish I have made for her. Please visit her post for the recipe, and while you are there check out the myriad of eye-popping, delicious recipes she creates.

Thank you soooooo much for treating me to such a lovely dish and expanding my taste buds 🙂 have a great day x x x x
Haha! So very glad that you like what I cooked for you! I would hate to invite you to my house to discover that you disliked what I had cooked! What a faux pas that would be!
Have a great week, Elaine!!
Thank you, and you xx
Wow these look amazing and very different. My kids are on strike me feeding them ‘different’ stuff I think I experimented on them too much x
I totally get that! But you know, they will probably thank you when they get older, for expanding their palate!
hah lets hope so
These look sooo good and I can imagine their enticing aroma with anise and ginger!
This broth was a revelation to me. I want to use it in some other recipes for sure.
Absolutely beautiful – what great colours. They sound so fragrant.
Well, thanks so much! The colours just stunned me as I was cooking, so I couldn’t wait to take the photos! The camera didn’t let me down… Too bad that our computers couldn’t transmit fragrances… 🙂
This is a gorgeous dish, Julianna… love the idea of black rice. I’m heading over to Elaine’s to view your (sure to be delicious) recipe. 😛
