    I like to make Alton Brown’s baked brown rice. It’s delicious and easy because you can pop it in the oven and do something else while it cooks.

  4. I love fried rice! Let it sit out all night and then stir fry with veggies in the morning for a great take-to-work lunch!

  5. I like to cook it in my rice cooker with coconut milk. It is still nutty but also gives it that fresh coconut taste.

    I don’t think there’s a way not to enjoy rice. A few of my favourites are with curry, making pancakes with leftover white rice, fried (with a ton of vegetables), and in sushi.

    I enjoy rice most when it’s made sweet with coconut milk. You can eat it for dinner and then eat the leftovers for breakfast with a little agave and cinnamon. Yum!

    mmm I’ve made something similar to this before…but I’m sure this one’s better! I can’t wait to try this recipe!! Yumm thanks Christy and EB for the recipe!

    My favorite rice dish is Biryani…the mixture of whole spices, dried fruit, nuts and sometimes veggies is absolutely delish!
