Puffed rice: recipes and combinations
How many foods are defined as nutrients but can yet be used in both sweet and savoury tasty dishes?
Few, but puffed rice is certainly one of them. Made from the seeds of a cereal called Oryza Sativa, it is subjected to a blowing process. The seeds are brought to a high level of humidity, dried very quickly to obtain light and crunchy rice grains.
So let’s discover how many and what recipes can be made with puffed rice.
Savoury recipes with puffed rice
Although these are more unusual than desserts, there are savoury recipes with puffed rice that must absolutely be tried. An example is a recipe for rice crackers that are even more nutritious than their classic versions. A good suggestion may also be to use rice oil instead of olive oil for the dough.
Let’s not forget that a great salty focaccia can be made with puffed rice. It will not only be tasty, but also crunchy. Without a doubt, this is a tasty, excellent substitute for bread.
Sweet recipes with puffed rice
But to be honest: the deal preparation of puffed rice is in desserts and it pairs perfectly with chocolate – whether white, milk or dark.
Among the various delicious sweet recipes with puffed rice, there are those for various types of biscuit and cheese cake. To fully enhance their taste, it is possible to use strong flavoured fruit such as strawberries, or even hazelnut cream.
However, one of the most appreciated desserts is still icecream, rendered even more delicious with some crunchy puffed rice in it.
Puffed rice and white chocolate: San Luca, the triumph of RivaReno
RivaReno offers its loyal clientele a myriad of specialties that go far beyond classic flavours. San Luca is an irreplaceable dessert that cherishes a sweet but firm character. The delicacy of white chocolate is simultaneously muted and enhanced by the crispness of the puffed rice grains. This gelato flavour required all the genius of RivaReno’s gelato mastes, who built the success of this delight on a perfect balance in which contrasts are harmoniously linked and give life to a treat without precedent.
