All about Rice

It’s quite fitting how some of the best casino sites are aimed at the Asian market, because whenever I’m trying my luck on them, having a rice-based dish or snack tends to bring me that much-needed luck. I’m going on about some mystical babble, I know, but hey, it is what it is!

We’re all about the whole lifestyle around food here, so I guess it’s okay…

You can easily make rice in the microwave, in the oven or by hand. At Andres’ restaurant in New York City, you can sample dishes like a roasted chicken with rice, olive oil and citrus, a five-course rice medley with mushrooms and rosemary, or a roasted salmon salad with a rice “salad” that has slivered almonds and cucumber for some crunch.

As you get comfortable with making rice at home, you can experiment with different toppings for the rice cooker and find new ways to customize your rice bowls. For example, you can add coconut milk, sliced raw peppers, slivered almonds or fresh herbs. Or if you’re looking for a savory dish, try making a rice salad with tomatoes, onions and carrots. It’ll only take a few minutes to make the rice, and the other ingredients should be prepared ahead of time to make the rice salad in less time.

If you prefer the simpler rice dishes but can’t stand the taste of black rice, you can make your rice from a mixture of black rice, brown rice, flaxseed, olive oil, onions and garlic, according to Food Network. Use the rice cooker to boil the mixture in batches, and cook the rice on the stovetop or in the oven until the rice is completely cooked.

The rice cooks quickly—in about 45 minutes, according to Descartes. The finished rice is slightly bland, but ideal for searing meat and making rice pudding.

You can also use the sauce to dress up vegetables like roasted mushrooms or zucchini, or to use it as a marinade for steamed chicken or fish.
