Qwik Dish: what I'm eating right now

...a Vegetarian Zongzi from the NYC Cravings Truck, which is basically the Taiwanese version of the Mexican tamale.  In this case, however, glutinous rice replaces masa.  Tucked within this starchy purse are mushrooms and beans, along with a couple of other vegetables.  The Zongzi arrives wrapped and neatly tied with bamboo leaves; almost like a Christmas present.  And damn, is it good!  I have to wait all week to sink my teeth in to one of these, as the NYC Cravings Truck is only in my neighborhood on Thursday's.

Vegetarian Zongzi from the NYC Cravings Truck: wrapped-up and ready to be devoured!What lies beneath the bamboo leaves...Love is glutinous rice dotted with an assortment of vegetablesIt would be safe to say that I'm having a scandalous love affair with all-things-glutinous-rice.  In fact, for dinner last night, I filled up on sesame rice balls from Evergreen Shanghai Cafe.  I. Cannot. Get. Enough.
