Just Plain Rice.

So I have another food question. My schedule does not give me any free time to call companies while they are open so I am hoping you all can help me. I found a rice recipe I like that a friend made, and so am now trying to buy a large amount of plain rice. I was wondering what companies people go with. I can read the labels that say there is only rice in the ingredients, but I'm worried about CC. What rice have people used that they have found works for them.

Thanks.

I haven't had any problem with any "regular" long grain enriched white rice. I've used Safeway brand, Fry's brand, Mahatma, etc. No problem.

I use Basmati Rice that I buy at an International store.

I always wash the rice until the water runs clear.

I have never been contaminated and neither has my son.

I buy different brands but always treat it the same way.

Rinse until the water runs clear.

Soak for 30 minutes in cold water.

Change the water again.

I have found that after soaking I only need to use the same amount of water as the measured dry rice.

Many people use Lundberg rice and it says Gluten free on the bag. I just ran out of Basmati and tried Lundberg but I didn't like it at all. And it was way more expensive than the Basmati I buy at Indian or Arabic groceries. So I will keep using Basmati.

Just my 2 cents on rice.

I always keep Minute brand in my cabinet. It's cheap, quick and easy. When I want to mix it up a bit, I get Uncle Ben's; the boil-in-bag is great when cooking for more than myself. I just bought a large box on Wal-Mart's version, but haven't tried it yet; Great Value is usually dependable though.

I just use the big bags from my Asian food store (I can't think of the name). I also have bought Mahatma or Watermaid brand rice when I can get it cheap with coupons. I rinse my rice well and have not had a problem.

I also have used minute rice, great to throw in soups right before serving. I also use just plain white and brown rice as well as wild. I rinse well before cooking.

I only eat brown rice because of the possibility of "corntamination" with the white. I usually use Minute brand brown rice (because that's all my grocery store carries) and it's great.

I use many kinds of rice but my favourite AP rice is Jasmine because of the lovely soft and slightly sticky texture (used to make sushi). A very quick way to elevate plain white rice is to add some fresh citrus juice and a coulple of bay leaves to the water. Or boil in coconut milk.

I often use chicken broth instead of water, and I add parsley and rosemary sometimes too. It's gotten to the point that I really enjoy my rice, and the smell of the fast food I used to live on nauseates me now.

Me, too. Carrot juice also works nicely instead of water. Sometimes I add lemongrass and/or keffir lime leaves to the water in addition to herbs. Even Parmesan rinds add a lot of flavour (which I did before I eliminated dairy).

I never did like fast food and the smell continues to nauseate me! ;)

Ooh, lemongrass! Thanks, I never thought of that! I'm going to try that tomorrow!

Another thing I'm going to try is using my brown rice in place of pasta. I've never been a big pasta fan anyway. I usually ask for rice instead of linguini, for example, when I get shrimp scampi. So, I'm thinking, why not put some home made spaghetti sauce with meatballs on it?

And then there is the recipe my friend gave me for mushrooms sauteed in garlic butter served over pasta with shredded cheese. I'll try it with the rice instead, someday when I have time.

I have a problem with rice... any kind of rice... in that I can't control myself around it. Hot rice with butter and salt is like CRACK to me. I could eat it at every meal... it could BE every meal.

I LOVE the perfume of jasmine rice. I LOVE making different kind of risotto. I LOVE sushi. I love plain old white rice and brown rice. I LOVE long grain and wild rice.

sign me, carb junkie

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. You have given me a lot of other ideas of new things to try along with my friend's recipe. Thanks!

I have only been gluten-free for a little over a month but have found that asian and indian grocers are the best for buying bulk rice, and they have a much larger variety of types then regular stores too. I have mostly been eating it plain but last night I was making plain jasmine rice in the cooker and I wasn't paying attention, I put twice the amount of water in than was called for. When it was done it was a more like rice mush. :o Well I didn't want to waste a full batch of rice so I mixed 1/2 of it with garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander and a few other random spices formed them into little rice cakes, then the other 1/2 with sesame seeds, sesame oil and a pinch of cinnamon. Then I fried them in canola oil. They turned out very yummy! I heated up a couple sesame ones tonight with a little honey drizzled on them-a perfect snack to satisfy my sweet tooth after a long day! :P

My "mistake" turned out to be something I might make regularly! :D

Oh, I'm also on a tight budget and have used rice for breakfast, just heat, add some milk (any kind; almond, regular, coconut etc) with a dash of cinnamon and some sugar or honey! It works in a pinch!

    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.
