Rice Cake Prep
Getting ready for a big training session and looking for something tasty to take with you? Look no further than Dr. Allen Lim's rice cakes. You can find a plethora of recipes in the Feed Zone Portables Cookbook, but here is a sneak peek of a few of Allen's favorites!
Allen doesn't use exact measurement, he goes by his senses. He's also been making rice cakes for over a decade, so his palate is highly tuned. The recipes below contain approximate amounts for 4 cups of dry rice (the max for Allen's rice cooker).
Rice cooker / large saucepan
Large mixing bowl
9" x 12" rimmed sheet pan
Paper foil for wrapping
Cheese grater (for savory recipe)
Blueberry Chocolate Coconut
Sushi Rice (x1.5 water, for this we did 4 cups rice with 7.5 cups water)
1 Pint Fresh Blueberries
16oz Can Coconut Milk
10oz Semisweet Chocolate
1/4 cup Raw Sugar
Juice from 2-3 Lemons
2 Teaspoons Salt
Black Pepper Parmesan (Cacio e Pepe)
4 cups Sushi Rice (x1.5 water, so 7.5 cups water)
8oz Parmesan Riggiano Cheese (grate fresh)
1 Tablespoon Braggs Amino
2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
1 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt to Taste
Rinse rice until water runs clear
Cook rice per rice cooker instruction
Carefully (it's hot!) move rice into large bowl
Use rice paddle to fold in wet ingredients while rice is hot
Fold in dry ingredients
Taste! It is salty/sweet enough? Do the ingredient flavors come though? If it doesn't taste good, add what it's missing! These are not instructions as much as suggestions and framework.
Once it tastes good transfer to sheet pan and spread out to about 1.5 inches thick
Use rice paddle to cut into 3inx3in squares
Place 1 square onto Skratch paper and wrap it up!
