Is bamboo rice what you get when you combine rice with bamboo shoots? Well, sort of. This short-grained white rice is infused with the chlorophyll-rich extract of young bamboo. Chlorophyll gives bamboo rice its unique, pale green color and delicate flavor reminiscent of Jasmine green tea. Bamboo rice can replace plain white rice in nearly any setting for an interesting side dish that will make guests do a double take! High in B-complex vitamins, it’s a healthy addition to any meal.
How to Cook Bamboo Rice
To cook bamboo rice, use one cup of rice for every 1.5 cups of water. The rice should not be rinsed prior to cooking. Bring water to a boil. Add rice and continue to cook until it reaches a boil again. Stir, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand with the lid on for 5-10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Very sticky maybe need to make again and watch it closer.Stephanie, Sacramento, CA
I thought this would be interesting, but it's just a little too weird for me. It does have a smell and taste suggestive of tea, but not in a good way. It also left green splatters on the inside of my rice-cooker lid. It's too expensive to waste, so I have been cooking it in ways that will temper the flavor. For example, cooking it with coconut milk or juice instead of water, or using curry flavor.Faye, Glen Burnie, MD
