A grain of rice the Sun gave birth
its gentle shell of flowers
bloomed like a rose in summer blaze,
a lily, a song of fire.
How did you make it to my plate?
From which far land you came?
Did you sneak in a drop of dew?
My Sun sent you on a ray?
I rise with dawn and soak your grains;
they sizzle in my pot.
You open your aroma of grace —
I praise you “ricing” sun!
a. 4 oz of cooked whole grain jasmine red rice (smells like sweet popcorn when being cooked!)
b. 1 Tablespoon of nut butter (almond, peanut, cashew or soy)
c. Seasoning: options of brown sugar, honey, agave or stevia (sugar free); a dash of ground vanilla bean; a dash of cinnamon; for chocolaty flavor, use 1 Tablespoon of sugar free cocoa or carob powder
d. 2 oz of cottage cheese (for a vegan recipe, use cashew cheese)
Mix ingredients in a, b and c with around 1/4 cup of water or less in a small pot in low to medium heat for a few minutes. The nut butter will give it enough consistency to shape it. Then put in a small plate and shape it as you like (a small square, a ball, a heart.) Top with cheese. Enjoy as dessert!
