My ongoing Momma-Chef mission is to provide quick, easy, and delicious meals for my family and for you. Since the New Year marks a time for fresh starts and new beginnings, this week’s recipe upgrades a favorite staple in our house – white rice. My family was weary of the same old plain rice, and they were ready for a change. My resolution was to create a recipe that would be good – and good for you. The result: Garlic-Infused Sticky Rice.
While I am pretty flexible with some labels on my ingredients, I strongly recommend that you adhere to the Nakano brand Roasted Garlic Flavored Rice Vinegar. The good news is that it has availability throughout the country. The better news is that these rice vinegars are all natural and all clean-label products. For those of you cooks who like to experiment as I do, there are nine flavors to choose from. (My other favorite is the Mango-Flavored Rice Vinegar – I’m sure you’ll see it appear soon in another good-for-you recipe from me this year!). I even have a coupon to save on all Nakano products that I am able to share with my followers, you can find the coupon here.
As we all try to achieve our goals for good health, I can’t wait to design recipes to swap out high-fat dressings and oils with these tasty vinegars. I hope you enjoy this rice as much as my family and I have. I like to serve the rice with some simple steamed chicken and broccoli; the flavor of the rice enhances the entire meal.
And like all of Momma Chef’s creations, Garlic-Infused Sticky Rice is quick, easy and scrumptious. With only 4 ingredients, you can whip this up up in under 5 minutes prep time!
- 2 cups uncooked sushi rice
- 3 tablespoons Nakano Roasted Garlic Rice Vinegar
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Make the sushi rice according to directions on the package.
- While sushi rice is cooking, in a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar and salt.
- Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves (about 3 minutes)
- Cool, then stir into the cooked rice.
- Keep gently stirring and the rice will dry as it cools.
