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.
This is a hearty Southern dish, easy to make and full of flavor and quite spicy! I sometimes add in cooked ground beef, you can add in some chopped cooked bacon or use spicy dryed smoked sausage to the beans for smokey flavor --- I also like to add in some Creole seasoning -- see my recipe#186029
This Chinese fried rice has the flavor those other recipes are missing. Tastes like takeout. I want to dedicate this dish to Bergy, whose recipe "AM & B's Indonesian Mehoon" has inspired this dish. Make sure you season your rice with salt before it cooks. Add some butter to the cooking water, as well. Other seasonings should be added before you cook, as well, so it has time to get inside the rice. If you like sesame flavor, add 1 tsp. of it after you add the green onions, but do not use it as a cooking oil because it easily burns.
This makes a lovely meal served with chicken or pork, steamed carrots and a light fruit salad. (My personal favorite fruit salad: honey melon, kiwi and fresh raspberries with a splash of lemon juice and a sprinkling of vanilla sugar).
This is an unbelievably flavourful rice recipe that almost seems a little too yummy for so few calories! I found this recice on a newsgroup, trimmed and vegetarian-ised it, and thought I'd share it with everyone here! It can easily be veganised with a suitable butter substitute.
Brown rice is SO much better for you than white rice. It has more nutrients and about 3 times more fiber than white rice does.
I never really cared for brown rice UNTIL I tasted this one. You can do as many variations as you like with it. Add your favorite herbs, spices or veggies to it. Make it vegetarian by using veggie cubes instead of chicken. The rice turns out perfectly fluffy and delicious. The aroma that fills your house while it's baking is wonderful and it's hard to wait until it's done to sneak a taste. As it bakes the bay leaves will rise to the top so they can be easily 'fished' out of the casserole before serving. I like to top the finished rice with freshly chopped cilantro and a twist of black pepper. For a nice crunch you can add chopped water chestnuts.
This is a version of rice that you find at a Tex-Mex restaurant. It is way easier than it looks and after you have made it once or twice - you can do it by heart. My kids love it and I love that I can sneak a few veggies in! Can be made vegan with veggie broth.
This is SO easy and yummy! And best of all only uses 1 pan. I came up with this recipe when we were low on groceries and low on money. Just using stuff on hand in the cupboard and fridge I came up with something everyone loves. My husband likes to put this inside a tortilla and roll it up with sour cream.
This is my kind of comfort food-a very untradtional but flavorful way to prepare risotto. Lots of shrimp, with garlic, ginger, pine nuts and cilantro. Risotto goes Pacific Rim! Adapted from a recipe from a local grocery store.
