Ginataan Dessert - Warm Coconut Soup with Sweet Potatoes By: Mary C.
I have friends with CF and I know they need high-calorie foods to help maintain their weight. "Ginataan" is one of my favorite family desserts growing up. It is a warm coconut soup made with sweet potatoes, jack fruit, taro, and plantains. It's a unique sweet dessert that's easy to enjoy. Since it’s warm, it's also comforting.
- 1 c rice flour (mochiko)
- 3 c coconut milk
- 1/3 c water
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1 sweet potato (or yam)
- 1 c jackfruit
- 2 taro root
- 4 plantains
- Add All Ingredients
Mix rice flour with water. Add little amounts of water until you get a soft dough.
Form the dough into small balls of about half an inch in diameter and set aside.
In the meantime, in a deep pan, bring to a boil the coconut milk and sugar. Reduce the heat to medium.
Add the flour balls, jackfruit, sweet potato (or yam), taro root and plantains.
Simmer for about 15 minutes or until all the fruit and root crops are cooked.
Stir frequently and when the soup is somewhat thick (but not too thick), serve warm.
