Foodie Friday: Quick & Easy Chili Rubbed Cod

 

One of the easiest and healthiest dishes that I make when I am short on time is seasoned and baked cod.  It is as simple as dashing the right combo of spices over the fish, and throwing it in the oven and waiting for it to bake while the rice cooks. Normally I serve this with brown rice or quinoa but I found this black rice the other day at the store and was inspired to make this fiesta flavored meal! 

Black Rice

 

Black rice (also known as purple rice or forbidden rice) is not only exotic looking but is high in iron and fiber and is also chock-full of vitamins and antioxidants making it a little known superfood.  The color of this rice can be attributed to the anthocyanins it contains which is the same type of antioxidant that gives blueberries and acai berries their distinctive blueish-purple coloring.  In fact, it is said that ten spoonfuls of cooked black rice contains the same amount of antioxidants as fresh blueberries! If that’s the case then black is the new brown when it comes to rice in my cupboard! Can’t beat more bang for your buck in the grain department 😉

SO with that in mind, I jazzed up my usual quick and easy fish dinner with some superfood rice that was still ready in just 30 minutes! I did cheat a bit and use steam in a bag frozen broccoli but it’s all good, right?
