Rice. Simple in nature, popular internationally, completely understated rice.
Rice is so amazing. It is a versatile grain that goes with any protein and vegetables to be made into a perfect meal. Although, I definitely do not, nor recommend to have it daily (I do believe in a versatile diet), I honestly could!
My kids love rice, I think most do. So, it is an easy go to for dinner once in a while. It allows me to mix in key nutrition while filling them up.
I personally opt for parboiled and brown rice. But to make it more interesting, I am always looking to make inventive rice dishes. Typically, being Fijian/Indian, we have rice plain but mixed with daal or curries or chutneys. Even still, I love one pot meals, and to kick it up a notch with rice. Given, I don’t want to just always have it there as a compliment often.
I took to my South Asian Blogger Network friends because they were sure to have some awesome ideas (no I’m not being stereotypical, it’s knowing what library to look in), and, BAM!!! They did not disappoint, that’s for sure.
I rounded some of the, I kid you not friends, best rice dishes…ever!
