Champorado-- Filippino Chocolate Sticky Rice made in the Instant Pot

So, this summer when our little Fil-Can granddaughters visited we went out and bought a ton of rice-- brown rice, brown Basmati, Jasmine rice, and plain old white rice.  While potatoes and beans are our starches of choice, our grandies prefer rice.  However, this year they didn't seem to want to eat it as quite as often, even though the Instant Pot delivers it in a lovely, highly digestible and delicious form.

So, this is to say that we have a LOT of rice left in our pantry.  I have been using it up in stews, for burrito filler, etc., but today I ran across a recipe for Champorado, a Filippino sticky rice chocolate pudding, and I thought, hey, I've got these ingredients in spades!

And I have an opportunity to see if I can make it fast and easy in the Instant Pot.

So.....

Measure out the following:

INGREDIENTS:

2 C. Rice, clean and soak it   (I used plain white rice, but glutinous rice is what is traditionally used)

3 C. Water

1/2 C. Cocoa

1/2 C.- 1 C.  Brown Sugar (or Coconut Sugar, what I used)

3 C. Coconut Milk (your choice if you want to use the canned, thick stuff or the drinkable coconut milk-- or any other non-dairy milk, for that matter)

1/2 C. Chocolate Chips

METHOD:
  1. Stir first 4 ingredients together the Instant Pot, and cook as you would rice.  I set the Instant Pot on the Rice Setting, then Manually add 15 minutes to the 10 minutes=25 minutes.  
  2. When the rice is cooked and has vented for 15 minutes, I remove the lid and scrape the pudding into another bowl or pot. To that I add the Coconut milk.  I do a taste test and may add in a little more milk or sugar or water.
  3. Scoop into bowls and add a small handful of chocolate chips to "garnish"

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
