Rice Balls in Sweet Ginger Soup

Lately I’ve been wondering about how physically attractive food doubles the excitement in eating. While taste and nutrition are still my basis for a good food, I can’t discount our natural tendency to feel this extra bliss when we see a food prepared carefully to look pretty. That maybe is the reason behind the emerging food art and classic plating. After all, we have all seen the wonder when creativity meets a foodie.

And now this Rice Balls in Sweet Ginger Soup. My curious love for ginger is not something that everyone gets to understand. I know how difficult it might be to look past the tangy and spicy flavor, but a kiss of honey made this snack all warm and nice. Besides, those cute little rice marbles look so pretty to me! Don’t get all fooled, though. They look small and cute but a single serving left me with this pleasant satiated feeling.

We were quite hungry when we made this so we resorted to the easiest wayΒ and our dish was all ready after fifteen minutes. Next time, when we’re hopefully not starving, we plan to add some fillings in the rice balls. Maybe some coconut shavings? Or caramelized beans?Β We haven’t really took the time to decide so let us know if you have thoughts on this! πŸ™‚
