Sticky Claypot Rice

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

Almost everything tastes better cooked slowly in a claypot, including rice. This method of cooking allows nutrients to be retained within the dish, and usually results in a dish with richer flavours and interesting textures.   

This rice dish could be created with a variety of rices including black brown or basmati rice, however the amount of water added and cooking times may need to be adjusted. 

A great dish to serve with tempeh & pan fried shitake mushrooms, or seared wild salmon!
