Foodie Friday: Fan Tuan

Fan tuan: sticky rice roll

fan tuan

It’s a Chinese breakfast burrito! Glutinous rice is wrapped around different fillings. Common insides include you zha gui, shredded pork, and pickled vegetables. These rice rolls are great for breakfast on the go because they usually end up pre-wrapped from the preparation process (think: sushi). I love the way the gooeyness of the outside rice pairs with the crunch of vegetables and the Chinese doughnut. What a great way to start the day!

Any breakfast treat you’re looking forward to soon, especially with Mother’s Day around the corner?

p.s. If you don’t want a culinary goodie, you can try a literary treat by ordering my cozy mystery here!

  1. Those look delicious! My breakfast tends to always be the same: berries and yogurt or whole grain cereal. Not too exciting, but at least it’s healthy. Then again, I don’t say ‘no’ when the hubs brings home an occasional doughnut…

      Healthy and tasty choices, Carrie! I’m a fan of toast and peanut butter for my usual breakfast fix.
