Peanut sticky rice

around the house

Hi, I'm back! 

Winter has come and gone. It feels like we missed spring and skipped directly to summer. The changing of seasons is not always obvious here in the desert. But what God made is amazing! All sorts of beautiful flowers are still blooming here and there in the hard condition and the shining sun is clear to all. The kids love to play outdoors in the heat, and it seems like the weather doesn't bother them at all. They play make-believe, chase each other, laugh, fall, cry... always full of energy.

Seasonal cooking is such a nice way to bring nature to the table. But before getting into seasonal food recipes (which I'm going to do next week), let me introduce you to a dish that's enjoyable throughout the year: peanut sticky rice, a simple, yet delicious and healthy food. It's usually served for breakfast in Vietnam. Like noodle, we have many types of sticky rice there. Sticky rice is really filling and keeps you feeling full all day ^-^.  You may find this a great snack for a gluten-free diet!

(4 portions)

¾ cup raw peanut, washed, drained
¾ cup glutinous rice, washed, drained

1) Place prepared raw peanuts in the food processor. Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1 cup of water. Cook on high heat until the pressure cooker starts to rock. Lower the heat to medium and let it rocks for 10 minutes. Then turn off the heat and wait until the pressure releases on its own. Transfer peanuts into a colander and let them drain.

2) Place the prepared glutinous rice in the rice cooker. Add 1/3 tsp salt, 3/4 cup of water and the cooked peanuts. Start the rice cooker and after about 30 minutes, voila~~~

You can eat it as is, or top with shredded coconut and sprinkle with a sesame condiment. I showed how to make the sesame condiment in my red bean sticky rice video, at 1:40.

You can also wrap in a tapioca wrapper and serve.
