Blue Rice Recipe

Simple, beautiful and tasty BLUE rice
Earlier this year my family got take-out food from
in San Francisco (DELICIOUS), and it included blue rice. My 2.5 year old son immediately fell in love. The color. The subtle hint of lemongrass flavor. The texture. He was smitten. We got so many requests for blue rice in my house I ended up learning how to make it at home. It’s super simple - basically lightly lemongrass flavored rice with a natural blue color dye from Butterfly pea flowers. So if you’re looking to brighten up your at-home rice regime with a little splash, try this out!

Rinse rice and drain, then put in your rice cooker. (This gets off any excess dust.)

2
Put the butterfly pea flowers and lemongrass powder on top of the rice. Do this before you add the water to make the color bleed out more evenly.

If you’re using a lemongrass stalk instead of lemongrass powder, I like to tie it up with some cooking string so it’s easier to fish out later.

Pour the water in, notice some of the blue color from the dried flowers start to bleed out. Give it a quick stir.

Sum
Note the butterfly pea flowers are edible, though pretty tasteless. At the end you can fish them out and throw them away or just much on them. You can leave the extra warm rice in the rice cooker for a few days, or put it in the fridge and then turn into a delicious fried rice (BLUE EDITION).
