    Are you craving that great Mexican rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years! I don't own a rice cooker but some people have had disappointing results using one. You will also need to adjust your cooking time if you want to use brown rice. I recommend following the cooking instructions as directed. Proceed at your own peril if you stray. Enjoy.

    Recipe #117892

    Great side dish for your Mexican fiesta. Try with Recipe #17130! It is as good as you'll find in any Mexican restaurant. Update: 1 teaspoon cumin was added to original recipe. I took some of my reviewers suggestion and added 1 teaspoon of cumin to the recipe. They were right. Cumin definitely adds to the taste.

    Sometimes I use 2 1/2 tsps of roasted dry garlic flakes instead of the fresh. Easy side dish goes great with chicken

    Recipe #71739

    Nothing fancy about this dish - just good eating. Round off with some feta cheese and crusty bread.

    Recipe #81968

    For all you chick pea lovers. With an Indian kick.

    Recipe #91128

    This is a must-have recipe for those who love ethnic foods. This is a very filling option as well.

    From Bon Appetit-very nice side dish.

    Recipe #54339

    16 Reviews |  By Anu

    This rice dish takes very little time to prepare and most of the ingredients are found in the common kitchen. I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and altered it to add that little "heat" I thought it needed. Serve this with a plain lentil dal (stew) or curry, or with a plain raita or cold yogurt.

    Recipe #48540

    I am posting it here for safe keeping and will be making before long. It looks absolutely delicious. It is a traditional Ramadan Soup. UPDATE - I have now made the soup and love it; I made it with red lentils which worked fine.

    Recipe #395399

    A very easy curry which doesn't take a lot of effort to prepare. It is low GI so will leave you feeling fuller for longer. It is quite a dry curry when made, I like to serve it over brown rice and then the next day eat the remainder cold wrapped in a chapatti with some sour cream.

    nice vegetable lovers side dish.

    Recipe #72232

    12 Reviews |  By Kimke

    "Dal" in Indian cooking refers to porridge like dishes made from dried legumes, usually split peas or lentils. Dal is often served in a thinned state as a soup, but equally often it will be a thick, hearty side dish. This is a thick dal, comprehensive and highly spiced enough to be the focus of a meal. From one of the Moosewood cookbooks. Prep time includes 2 hours for cooking dried split peas. Serve with rice and raita.

    Recipe #64224

    This was one of the most popular dishes at Nancy Mehagian's vegetarian restaurant on the island of Ibiza and she shared it in her book "Siren’s Feast: An Edible Odyssey". There are two secret (and essential) ingredients in this recipe - fine bulgur (which has the added benefit of cooking quickly) and tamari soy sauce. This really is the best tabbouleh you will ever make! Dish should be chilled before serving.

    Recipe #379639

    A recipe from Ricardo.

    Recipe #322848

    This is an anitajoye original and it is delish! It's great crockpot dish. Start it in the morning and it will be ready for dinner. You can serve it over Basmatti rice, or eat alone as a soup

    Recipe #85865

    A great lentil recipe, to accompany curries, a wonderful blend of spices that is a great addition as a side dish to any Indian Curry. Made by memory after having watched the cook make this many times when I was a child. Serves 4-6

    Recipe #153866

    This is a delicious, healthy, colorful soup. From Fields Of Greens by Annie Somerville. Freshly toasted and ground spices really make a difference here.

    Recipe #143198

    This is not gourmet, and far from authentic, but it is tasty and very easy to make... and excellent weeknight meal. I like to make extra to bring to work for lunch, and I always make twice as much rice as I really need for other dishes, for just this purpose. I'm totally addicted to it now, I have it at least once a week.

    Adapted fron a 2007 issue of Super Food Ideas - great winter warmer.

    Recipe #302419

    7 Reviews |  By Mikekey

    This can be served either warm or room temperature as an appetizer (good with toasted pita chips), or as a side to chicken. As suggested by some reviewers, add cumin and allspice to taste, if desired!
