    Sushi Rice

    A foolproof way to make crowd-pleasing rice.

    Advertisement

    1 1/2 cups (350 mL) short-grain sushi rice
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) rice vinegar
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) sugar
    1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) kosher salt

    Gently rinse rice well with cold water and let rest in the strainer for about 20 minutes.

    Heat vinegar, sugar, and salt in pan over medium heat, stirring until sugar and salt are dissolved. Set aside.

    Place rice and 1 1/2 cups (350 mL) of water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water is gone, about 20 minutes.

    Remove rice from heat and let rest, covered, for 20 minutes. Transfer rice to a bowl, and toss gently with vinegar mixture.

    Makes 3 cups. Each one cup (250 mL) serving contains: 376 calories; 6 g protein; 0 g fat; 83 g carbohydrates; 3 g fibre; 676 mg sodium

    Anti-stick tip: Before handling cooked rice, dampen your hands with a water-vinegar mixture to keep rice from sticking to you

    Mandarin Orange Chocolate Almond Cake

    Mandarin Orange Chocolate Almond Cake

    The combination of warm chocolate and the coveted mandarin orange makes this a holiday classic perfect for an intimate dinner party. Almond flour along with hemp hearts deliver healthy fats and protein and keep the cake gluten free and moist, removing the need for any additional oil or butter in the batter. A tiny drizzle of olive oil poured over the mandarin-encrusted top and a pinch of salt bring out the sweet flavour of the mandarins. Mandarin top Zest mandarins and reserve 1 Tbsp (15 mL) zest for use in the recipe. Set mandarins aside, leaving them unpeeled. When cake is baked, trim mandarins by slicing off top and bottom to form a flat edge. Then placing mandarin on the edge with peel, slice into 3 equal wheels. Repeat for each mandarin. Now, gently remove peel, being careful to keep wheels intact, and arrange on top of the cake, filling in holes with smaller sections trimmed from a wheel.
