I love rice! Just plain with butter and salt, with a splash of soy sauce, with seasonings, with meat mixed in....it's all good.
Here, then, are some rice recipes I've come across and tried or that sound like I want to try them.
Uses 2 cups of cooked white rice. It's from Traditions by the Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child, submitted by Theresa Patterson. If you double this recipe, double the cooking time too. I haven't made this yet but it sounds like a quick and easy recipe that kids would like too.
Taking what I know about rice pilaf, that it can be pretty blan sometimes, I came up with a great TASTY way to make rice. My family requests this all the time. Great served with Chicken, Pork and Steak. For those of you that don't want all the vegetables in your rice, try this one!
A nice side dish for poultry. I made a change in the rice/broth ratio, and cooking method on recommendation of some of the reviewers, and after trying it myself again. This changed the servings to 4 instead of 2. Thanks to all reviewers for your input!
I started doing this to save some time in the evenings. I don't like using that 10 minute Uncle Ben's but I do like having my rice ready that fast ;O). I really like using sushi rice! Use whatever rice you prefer!
This rice is absolutely amazing! If you love lemon and rice then you should not pass this up, this rice has all the creaminess of risotto without all the constant stirring. To insure creaminess use only aborio rice for this. If you are not a garlic lover then leave it out.
Risotto Cakes made in a mini-muffin pan. A great way to use leftover risotto to make lunchbox snacks. This is one of those basic recipe ideas that you can easily adapt to use up whatever odds and ends of ingredients you have on hand. And it's a recipe that can easily be doubled. I've not frozen these, but I've always found rice dishes freeze well, so I'm sure you'll find you can also freeze them.
This moist hotdish is so easy to prepare, requiring ingredients that are very common to have on hand. Adapted to my tastes from the "Scandinavian and American Recipes" cookbook, which contains recipes submitted by parents and friends of the Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir.
A Syrian friend gave me this. They got it off the internet because they missed their mom's rice. I wish I knew who to credit.My DH who lived in Lebanon when he was young even says this is like the rice his mom makes, maybe even a little better!
I figured out that you can make this in gargantuan quantities and freeze in containers for later. It really saves time...only about 10 minutes to heat up and is a great addition to any Chinese meal. Great way to use extra cooked rice too! I have a rice cooker and it's really easy to make extra. Cook time includes cooking "real" rice and chicken.
Submitted per request for recipes using bulgur and even though I haven't made this I thought it sounded really interesting and I am planning on making it soon. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (September 1984)
My Aunt Helen used to make this to accompany her Sunday Rib Roasts or a thick and juicy London Broil. Aunt Helen passed away twenty years ago but her Rice Pilaf recipe remains a favorite of ours. It's very simple to prepare, no frills, but very tasty.
This is an old stand by for me, its quick and easy and can be served as a main dish or side dish. Its great with a nice middle eastern salad and a side of yoghurt and also goes well with baked lamb or roasts.This is a great potluck dish as well.Seasoning are approximate, you can adjust to suit your tastes.
I love risotto! The vegetarian broth is vital to give it flavour - I use a broth concentrate and use twice the amount for risotto. The colour is equally important so consider a mix of red/green/yellow/orange peppers. Make sure your risotto is a little bit 'wet' in the end, so the dish doesn't get dried out and pasty.
