Kitchen stores like Teatro Verde in Bayview Village are dangerous stores for me. I’m bound to buy something and indeed I did buy something. Here’s an example:  See this display? Well…it really worked. I actually stood there…. watched the video and then bought the Rice Cube.

I must add, that I was  (really) nervous to buy this kitchen gadget, as it was $19.99 and there is no refund or exchange policy at this store. But I did. Go figger.

When I got home, I took out my beloved Rice Cooker (thanks @isfalk for ensuring I bought one back in 2010) and my USA Rice and made a batch of sticky rice.

Then I inserted the cooked sushi rice into the little compartment. (photo on the left). Step 2 involved  closing the lid ( photo on the right) and then Step 3 involved taking out the CUBE OF RICE. No fuss. No muss.

Here’s the end result. I was all too happy to serve this to my guests that were coming over for dinner.

Rice Cubes topped with Dried Kimchi that I bought at Trader Joe's.

This kitchen gadget is certainly going to be motivating me to use more USA Rice.  Also I’ve recently discovered this Rose Reisman Video that I would like to share with you. This video demonstrates the versatility of rice, the health benefits as well as a recipe for a quick and healthy rice salad.

I can’t wait to make these cubes again and top them with chopped nori, or black and white toasted sesame seeds. So many ideas. So little time!!
