Got bored with rice because it stays the same? Why not try the opposite of salt? Why not try something ... sweet!?
Disclaimer: I am no chef nor baker, I just simply have a love for rice.
Today I will teach you something sweet, warm, and fast. Tell me, have you ever heard of arroz doce, also known as sweet rice?
I’ve been eating arroz doce all my life; it’s like a safe haven. When you have nothing to eat but have rice and sugar in your drawer, arroz doce is there to save the day. When your stomach is weak but you're not feeling hungry or feel like you need to puke, arroz doce will make you forget all about it, and hopefully, make your stomach stronger. Everyone’s stomachs are different so ... that explains why I said hopefully. Anyways, I felt like a lot of people out there didn’t know that rice isn’t just meant to be savory, but it could be sweet as well. I wish more and more people would learn about this treat and one day, look favorably upon sweet rice. No, it’s not weird. It tastes great! You just haven’t heard of it before.
This will only come out well if used with milk. If you avoid dairy you could try only water, but I can guarantee the outcome won’t be the same. Hmm ... maybe skim milk??
When you look at the outcome, you may think “Hey … this looks familiar.” My guess is that you're probably thinking about Korean porridge. It has salt, veggies, and no milk, just water. It’s popular to eat when you’re feeling sick. So now when you think of arroz doce. remember that it's the exact opposite of Korean porridge. I hope you guys enjoyed and found something new to try.
