Mango Sticky Rice
It is a rare day that Jake makes a request for food; he usually just eats whatever I make. But when he looked at the mango in our fruit bowl and asked, "Do you have any rice? The white, sticky kind?" I followed his gaze and commented, "You want mango sticky rice, don't you?!" Yes! Okay.
This is not a traditional Thai Khao Neeo Mamuang; it's my own fast and loose interpretation. But it is delicious!
2 C Kuhuho Rose rice
2 C coconut cream
2 C milk
1/2 C organic granulated sugar
1 t pure vanilla extract
1 ripe mango, peeled and sliced
Place all of the ingredients - except for the mango - in a large saucepan that has a lid. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and let steam until the rice is tender. If the rice is not cooked, but all the liquid has evaporated, add in more milk. Once the rice is cooked, spoon it out on individual plates and top with mango.
