Bamboo Rice Risotto

Bamboo Rice Risotto

Ingredients:
1 cup Nature's Earthly Choice Bamboo Rice
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
1 inch section fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
¼ tsp freshly ground cardamom
1 Tbsp raw cane sugar
¼ tsp salt, or to taste
4 oz straw mushrooms, sliced
¼ lb fresh sugar snap peas, sliced diagonally
2 Tbsp fresh chives, thinly sliced

Directions:

  • Heat the coconut milk in a medium sized pot with a tightly fitting lid & bring to a boil.
  • Add the chopped ginger, cardamom and sugar and simmer for a few moments to infuse the flavor into the coconut milk.
  • Add the rice, stirring well, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to very low and cover.
  • Cook covered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure the bottom does not stick or burn. Add a little water if the rice seems too dry.
  • Stir in the mushrooms and snap peas, cover again and return to low heat.
  • Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the rice is tender, but with a little resistance to the tooth.
  • Serve, topping with a sprinkle of sliced chives.
