What's in the Fridge...Suman

As the holiday season approaches, traditional treats start appearing everywhere, including the fridge. Suman, a sweet, sticky roll made from glutinous rice and wrapped in banana leaves  is one such treat. Prepared and cooked with coconut milk and sugar, the rolls are then wrapped and steamed. 

Great with some Queso de Bola cheese and hot chocolate for breakfast or mid-afternoon snacks. Though it's available year round, nothing quite like enjoying this treat during the holidays. Bring on the holidays!

  3. Suman is new to me, but it looks fabulous… I'm a lover of all things rice, plus sweets are my life, so I think it's safe to say I'd love this...

  4. Hey Nicole, I think you'll like this!
