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!
Quinoa, pronounced "keenwa," quadruples in size when cooked yet stays crunchy and nutty. This recipe (which I've not tried) adds a variety of colors of bell pepper to the quinoa for the effect of confetti. From Laurel's Kitchen Cookbook and submitted for Zaar World Tour II.
This is a delicious rice recipe with such a wonderful flavour to it. I like this dish very much! : )
I couldn't find dashi stock so I used miso soup instead.
And if you don't want to use fresh shrimp you can use precooked peeled shrimp. Just add them in the last minute of cooking to heat through.
It’s a creamy tasty risotto; do try the mushroom;it's also fantastic!
I used fresh herbs! please cut down the amounts to 1/2 tsp when using dry herbs.This recipe is from my son who is a chef. He slowly made it in front of me so I could write it down;it is one of my very favourite things to indulge in!
FRIED RICE (NOT!) Thats what my kids call this!! I got this recipe from my friend Bev, and it is a quick and easy side dish, that can be padded out with a few more veggies. I would suggest that you dont "muck around" with this too much the first time you make it, as I have tried to be too clever and it hasnt worked out as well!!!
having said that, I have to say I usually add garlic and ginger, and I am sure you have a favorite ingredient you would like to add :)
This is another one which is based on the Wise Encyclopedia of Cookery [1970's Edition] recipe, but has been altered to suit our own tastes. It is not hot in the least bit. To add the spicy flavor, add in 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne.
Delicious fried rice recipe taught to me by an Asian friend. The rice must be cooked and well dried out before you start. I find my rice cooker does the job perfectly. When the cooker is finished, leave the rice in there for at least another half hour, stirring from the bottom ocassionally to let it dry out.
This risotto turned out wonderfully even the very first time I prepared it, with rice grains cooked al denté yet surrounded by delicious creaminess. A great comfort food from The Complete Cooking Light Cookbook (2000)
Foolproof and easy to prepare.
Dish can be made ahead and reheated before serving. You can freeze the leftovers; it works!
Feel free to add other herbs of your choice; when fresh herbs are around I am very generous and produce all kind of taste senstions.
