Hey!

Now that the novelty of having brown rice whenever I want it has worn off, I am looking for ways to make it more interesting. Anyone have good ideas for spices or combinations of spices? Or good (and easy) sauce recipes? I miss soy sauce.

Thanks!

Sara

Curry.

Basil, Oregano, Parsley, sage.. top with Parmesan. Throw in some garlic powder too.

Use chicken or vegetable broth or bullion instead of water.

Add some tomato paste and cilantro ( do not decrease water), some chili powder too if you like it spicy.

Sometimes I throw in a little butter or olive oil with spices to get a creamier effect, only a little though.

Spanish Saffron.

Make sure you scrub the heck out of it after Curry or saffron though, as that stuff likes to linger.

Sweet-n-sour barbecue sauce over small hamburger patties - on top of rice with more sauce.

Sautee green onions and garlic in butter or Ghee and add to cooked rice with salt and pepper to taste. If you don't want to bother with fresh garlic, sprinkle with garlic powder. You can also precook chopped celery and/or carrots (cut in less than pea-sized pieces) and add them to the mix.

Mix leftover rice with cooked breakfast sausage - lightly sauteed to heat - one of my breakfast favorites.

Rehydrate sun-dried tomatoes (soak in hot water for about 5 minutes). Cut in small pieces. Add sauteed onions and green peppers (cooked in olive oil). Season with oregano and basil. Add a little tomato water to moisten and heat on low until herbs are rehydrated. Stir into cooked rice. I like to add black olives - but that's just me - they go with about anything IMO.

I have alot of Japanese pilaf recipies for the rice cooker that use soy sauce, mirin(sweet cooking rice wine) and sake to season the liquid in addition to chicken and/or various asian vegetables. These recipies are formulated to work with sticky short grain white rice but might work with brown rice as it has a little more body to it, like the sticky rice does. You might have to adjust the amount of liquid though, if using brown rice If you use these kinds of ingredients I can share the recipies if you'd like.

I also have a recipie for a pork sausage, sweet potatoe, apple casserole that tastes good with or on brown rice.

We make plain rice in the rice cooker, and then top it on each plate with a splash of soy sauce (we like San-J, but La Choy works, too), a splash of sesame oil, a pinch of sugar, and lots of choped green onions and cilantro.

You can also make Sushi Rice: mix equal parts rice wine vinegar and sugar, add a little salt, bring to a boil, mix with hot rice (stir well!), and add cooked frozen mixed vegies, like peas and carrots. Yum!

Hmmmm... I'm going to have to try that. I've never actually had Sushi (don't like the thought of raw fish!) - but this sounds like it might be good... maybe with cooked frozen stir-fry veggies???

I've been experimenting with different types of rice---Lundberg sells gourmet rice varieties. I like Wehani rice and absolutely love the black/mahogany rice mix. Actually, I've switched to Lundberg recently. I like their plain brown rice *so* much better than any other brand of brown rice. Seems a bit spoiled to insist on eating gourmet rice . . .but hey, it is the only thing I can eat in the grains department.

I even eat rice as a breakfast cereal. the black rice mix tastes really good with a bit of succanat (unprocessed evaporated sugar cane juice) and whole milk and some cinnamon.

Another idea for leftover white rice (works best with glutinous rice): add some oil and rice flour and a bit of water. Form into patties. Fry with a bit of oil on a griddle or a non stick pan.

I've seen a recipe in which you add cumin seed, coconut. . .possibly coriander too, I can't recall.

I've made these patties before with added sweetener + cinnamon and nutmeg . . perhaps allspice. I fry it in butter---tastes good with maple syrup.

I like to use boullion.

Italian herbs are a good option as well.

Mexican herbs are another option - particularly in combination with tomatoes.

A pilaf with veggies (carrots, onions, bell peppers?) is another option...

Two of my brothers-in-law are from Iran and they make delicious rice dishes. Try adding cooked lentils, sauteed onions, garlic, butter and salt to taste. Or sautee onions, carrots and raisins in butter or olive oil, stir into rice and add some chopped pistachios.

My kids' favorite way to eat brown rice is in "Plov". Cook brown rice. While the rice is cooking, sautee an onion, add as much boneless, skinless chicken (bite-sized pieces) as you'll eat, toss in some garlic and a LOT of grated carrot. Salt to taste. Simmer until rice is done. Stir the chicken mixture into the rice. Simple, but yummy. Don't skip on the carrots, they make it sweet and rich tasting.

For the rice cooker I like using Basmatti Brown Rice and add broth (chicken, vegetable) and then I throw in any vegetables I have around. I throw in mushrooms, chopped brocolli, I ususally have a container of dried onions around so I throw in a handful or so of those too. BTW, I don't add more liquid due to the additions either.

Then I may top with soy sauce, or even the Thai Kitchen Sweet Chili Sauce for a spicy flavor.

I also like to get those Tyson Chicken Tenders from Costco and I boil em, chop em, and add them to the rice after the rice is cooked and then I have a simple, complete meal for those busy days :o

Herb-ox Boulllion cubes are gluten free. I also can add garlic salt. Sometimes I put Kraft shredded cheese on top and nuke it in the microwave. Be careful, some brands of shredded cheese contain gluten to prevent caking. I also mix the rice with cooked frozen veggies.

I like cooking one cup brown rice with one cup lentils and about 3.5 cups water. Olive oil, balsamic and sea salt are tasty additions after it's cooked. :)
