      You can make rice taste lots of different ways by cooking it with

      other ingredients. Think of all the flavors of Rice-a-Roni that are

      on the shelves. You can make your rice just as interesting, but

      without all the chemicals! I just experiment rather than use specific

      recipes, but here are some ideas:

      Use broth or part-broth-part-water when cooking the rice

      Use canned tomatoes and Italian or Mexican spices

      Mixed creamy canned soups with the rice

      Add onions, peppers, celery, carrots, broccoli, etc.

      After the rice is cooked, add some cheese (my kids love this)

      Combine with kidney beans, black beans, corn, salsa, etc.

      Rice pudding!

      I also use rice as a base for other foods. For example, put chili

      over it and it’s a very filling bowl of food. Or I’ll put rice,

      veggies and canned soup in a casserole dish, put some chicken on

      top,and then bake it all together.

      As you can probably tell, rice is a staple in our house. We buy large

      bags of white rice at Costco, bulk brown rice at a grocery store, and

      eat rice probably 2-3 times a week, at least as often as potatoes.
