Savory Rice Porridge with Nettles made with Koda Farms rice

You may recognize Koda Farms‘ Kokuho Rose rice as the star ingredient in Sqirl’s sorrel rice bowl or from M Cafe de Chaya’s whole grain bowls.  If you’ve eaten at Minh Phan’s much touted Porridge & Puffs pop up, you’ve tasted it in her porridge too.

Fortunately farmers’ market customers now have access to Robin Koda’s rice (both brown and white) once a month when she visits the Hollywood and Santa Monica markets. This week, Amelia Saltsman, author of the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market Cookbook shares her recipe for Savory Rice Porridge with Nettles, a dish that was inspired by Robin’s white Kokuho Rose rice.

Robin will be at the Sunday Hollywood Market this weekend on January 18th. She will be at the Santa Monica market on Wednesday, January 21st.

You can also find her rice at Sqirl, M Cafe de Chaya, Cookbook, Mitsuwa, Mother Moo Creamery, Monsieur Marcel and Marukai markets.
