We'll eat rice along with stir fry, or in burritos, but mostly as a side dish. Brown rice kind of bores me, so we keep these two varieties on hand, one is called Black Japonica and the other is a Jubilee mix. These are great because they cook perfectly, and you can taste each different kind of grain, I had never even heard of mahogany rice before I tried these. I cook it with a mix of chicken stock and water, and usually add cooked onions and mushrooms to the mix. But the other night I had a box of frozen chopped spinach, so I defrosted it, drained out the water, and mixed it in with the finished rice. I was surprised at how well the spinach worked:
Looks good, no?
So tell me, how do you make grains? Are you a straight up rice person or do you experiment with things like quinoa? I'm always up for something new, so I'd love to hear it.
