Puto, the Filipino steamed rice cake, is often served alongside savory main dishes such as pancit or dinuguan (pork blood stew). Traditionally made with rice flour, it is usually sweet and is enjoyed as a snack or merienda.
The most common version is one that has cheese but it can be flavored with so many other Filipino ingredients: pandan, ube, or even mixed in with bacon bits, or flavored with muscovado or brown sugar.
