Serves: 4
  • 1 cup of paella or any risotto rice. Jasmine rice will work
  • water to cook
  1. Wash rice under running water until clear.
  2. in a pot, bring water to a boil, pour in the rice and bring to another boil. Reduce the heat and cover. cook rice and keep adding water until the rice is cooked and really soft and sticky.
  3. With a wooden spoon or potato masher, mash the rice until smooth. I like mine roughly mashed, so it is not so smooth. Mold into any shape and serve with Okra soup, Light soup, pepper soup or any soup you prefer
