Black Soybeans with Sweet Rice

1/4 cup black soybeans
1/2 cup medium brown rice, rinsed
1/2 cup sweet brown rice, rinsed
2 1/2 cups spring water

Combine brown rice, sweet rice and black soybeans in a large bowl. Add water and cover with a sushi mat. Soak 3-5 hours or overnight.
Place grain and beans in a pressure cooker and bring up to boil. Skim any foam that may appear, add a postage-stamp-sized piece of kombu, cover and bring up to pressure on medium-high flame. When pressure is up, place a flame deflector underneath the pressure cooker and reduce flame to medium-low. Cook for 50 minutes. Remove from the flame and allow the pressure to come down. Remove the cover and let sit for a few minutes before placing in a serving bowl. Enjoy!
