Peruvian Rice Pudding

Peruvian Rice Pudding

Serves: 8-10

Time: 50-60 min

Difficulty: Medium

As previously mentioned in the post for Groundnut (Peanut) Stew, my wife and I received a newsletter for each of our children that we sponsor through Compassion International, which contained a recipe for a native dish that is typically eaten by the child. Still inspired by the recipes and having already made the Groundnut (Peanut) Stew (a dish from Northern Uganda where our sponsor child Stuart lives), it was time to try the recipe for Rice Pudding, a dish from Peru, where our other sponsor child Patricia lives. Admittedly, I’ve never made or even eaten Rice Pudding, so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. But to my delight, the final result was very tasty. Definitely a dish I wouldn’t mind making again.

Serves: 6-8

Time: 20 min (active), 40 min (inactive)

Difficulty: Easy

Last week, my wife and I received a newsletter for each of our children that we sponsor through Compassion International. One of the items included in each newsletter was a recipe for a native dish that is typically eaten by the child. Feeling inspired by the recipes, and seeing the opportunity to add the new recipes to my 50 in 15 Challenge, I decided to try my hand at each one.

First up was this recipe for Groundnut (Peanut) Stew, which is a recipe from Northern Uganda where our sponsor child Stuart lives. I looked at a few other recipes for Peanut Soup, and saw that there is a variety of ingredients that can be used, but I chose to stick with the recipe and ingredients from the Compassion newsletter. The end result was surprisingly tasty — sort of like a peanut-flavored vegetable curry. And it just so happens that it’s both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly.
