Los Angeles isn’t just about movie stars and fashion models. It’s also home to a rich legacy of Black food culture that foodies of all backgrounds should explore.
Djon djon rice is to Haitians what gold is to royalty. Commonly known as “black rice”, it’s one of our most unique and delicious dishes. When the djon djon comes out, you know it’s a celebration.
Djon djon translates to “mushroom”, specifically those mushrooms grown in the northern part of Haiti. As a result, the mushrooms aren’t easily available for most folks so I like to suggest cooking the rice with a Maggi cube. The substitution is frowned upon by some but it does the exact same job in my opinion.
If there are a lot of Haitians in the area where you live, you might get lucky and find djon djon at a Caribbean market. Either way, this recipe delivers amazing flavor and once you make it, you’ll never want to eat rice & peas any other way.
This recipe takes a lot less time than the traditonal method, thanks to the use of a rice cooker.
