Popular Rice Recipes

Rice is such a simple pleasure. Whether you have a go-to Mexican rice recipe for taco night, heap brown rice in your stir-fry, or enjoy spicy red beans and rice, there are endless options. Maybe you grew up eating instant rice from a box (shudder) but these days, there are more types of this versatile grain available, and lots of great ways to use it. What you see on supermarket shelves is just a fraction of what's out there - at farmers markets and specialty stores you can find unique heirloom varieties in striking colors with fancy pedigrees. But for most meals, you can find what you need at the market. Basamati rice, traditionally eaten with Indian food, has a long thin grain and an intensely nutty aroma. Jasmine rice, often served with Thai dishes, is very fragrant, with a flavor that's almost floral. So get creative: A pilaf is nice, but what about wild rice studded with toasted almonds? Or a rich, creamy mushroom risotto made with short-grain Arborio rice? Long-grain varieties cook up light and fluffy, perfect for serving alongside a dinnertime stir-fry. And for dessert? Rice pudding, of course.

Two-for-One Stuffed Party Pinwheels

Why two-for-one? Because our recipe actually makes two different kinds of tortilla spirals¿¿one flavored with curry powder, the other with garlic and herbs.

Cajun Snapper with Red Beans & Rice

The classic flavors of Cajun country come out to play in this wonderfully simple main dish, perfect for busy weeknights. When buying fresh fish, pay close attention to the smell. Fresh snapper should smell slightly sweet, and a little salty, like clean sea-water. If it smells "fishy" at all, it has turned, and is not safe for consumption.

Cheesy Millet and Black Pepper Breadsticks

Crisp, yeasty and thoroughly healthful, these breadsticks combine whole grains and cheese in a delightful way. Although millet is a common protein in much of the world, it's not so common here. Look for the neutral-tasting grain in the health food aisles of your supermarket.

Prosciutto-Stuffed Chicken Bake

Talk about time-saving. The chicken's wild rice and broccoli side dish bakes in the same pan, meaning that all you need to do is toss up a simple green salad in order to make it a complete meal. When purchasing prosciutto from a deli, insist that the clerk place sheets of paper between the wafer-thin slices. Without paper, prosciutto slices are nearly impossible to separate.

Chilled Tomato Soup with Corn Bread Croutons

Bright tomatoes, refreshingly cool cucumber, and peppery green onions lend their incredible flavors to this phenomenal summer soup. Substitute fresh tomatoes for even more lively flavor. Choose firm, well-shaped tomatoes that are heavy for their size, with unblemished skins. The variety is not important, just be sure that they are noticeably fragrant, and richly colored.
