Nian Gao (Chinese Rice Cakes)

Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 2

Suitable for Vegans

 

No word of a lie, this is the easiest dish to make. It has a handful of ingredients and it's my go to when I'm feeling lazy after a long day at work. Rice cakes are made from rice flour and have a chewy consistency. You can find them in a variety of different Asian dishes. I find that the simpler, the better.

• 1 packet of rice cakes (from any Asian supermarket)

• 3x tbs of light soy sauce

• A pinch of salt

• 1x tbs honey

• 1/2 cup of water

• 1x tsp bouillon powder (exclude if you're Vegan)

• Half a Chinese cabbage chopped

Step 1: Heat up a tbs of oil with a pinch of salt in a pan and add the Chinese cabbage. Stir through and make sure it's all well coated.

 

Step 2: Rinse your rice cakes and then add them into the pan along with the light soy sauce and water. Give it a quick stir and cover.

 

Step 3: After 10 minutes, take the lid off and add the bouillon powder and honey and stir thoroughly. let it sit with the lid on for a further few minutes. Serve immediately.
