This is a filling and tasty dish that can either serve as a unique starchy side or, along with a vegetable dish, a good vegetarian meal.
My brother Jake and I ate this dish almost everyday on a surfing trip to Costa Rica. This is my best approximation of it. Very hearty, tasty meal.
This is a delicious dinner with minimal preparation required.
This is a quick side dish that is great with any Mexican dish.
Growing up, this was the one dish we always looked forward to. We only had it twice a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Before Grandma passed away, she gave us the recipe. Enjoy.
My all-time favorite recipe, which my Dad makes every year on New Years Day for the college Bowl games. I prefer the ham hocks, but you can substitute a ham bone for them. To slice the sausage easier, put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first. The longer you cook it the creamier the beans get; I love to let it simmer all day, the smell is wonderful. Serve with hot rice.
Delicious chicken and rice meal that everyone will love!
Cream of chicken gravy over white rice. The ingredients for this recipe are not gourmet, but the taste is gourmet.
Simple Spanish rice recipe I threw together. One of my kids, who is not a fan of Spanish rice, even enjoyed it.
This recipe is rice with a sauce. I do not really enjoy plain rice. I wanted to make a recipe that was appealing yet easy and delicious.
This was a dish we had on a recent trip to Thailand. I've invented my own recipe based on the flavors I remembered and my knowledge of Thai cooking. It's a great side dish with a Thai meal. You can increase or reduce the fish sauce to taste or add some fresh chiles to this if you want a little heat. Serve, and listen for the ooo's and aaaa's.
Rice dressing for a 10-12 pound bird.
This is my vegan rendition of an old New Orleans classic, I was told these beans and rice were the real thing by four representatives of an old Creole community in New Orleans. Try for yourself.
I serve this with Cindy's Enchiladas.
If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right, yes? That's practically a man law. So instead of making normal rice, take a little extra time to make this spicy, flavorful pilaf.
Incredibly simple, fast and healthy, a meal to make when you're wanting to get in and out of the kitchen fast.
White rice gets a little boost: flavor from scallions and a little extra protein from edamame. Think of it like a drill with a sanding attachment.
An good workaround for rice pilaf. Every man likes a quality workaround. Saffron, the world's most expensive spice, adds the flavor...but don't worry, you'll only use a bit of it.
A quick-cooking take on the New Orleans favorite, jambalaya.
This fine dessert often served at Thai restaurants can be made very easily at home in the toaster oven.
