T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies

Author’s notes: When I spotted red raisins in the supermarket, I instantly knew what I wanted to do with them: throw them into a bowl of black rice together with cape gooseberries.

  • 2 Tbsp raisins
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice (or to taste)
  • 2–3 Tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
