I find that rice is an excellent base to show off other food.
- Add some vegetables or fruits and you have a new dish, one that is probably a success.
- Mix in a juice or a sauce and it is apt to work.
- Brown some onions and mushrooms and with a few changes, you will have fried rice.
- Boil it. Bake it. Fry it. Rice is good and versatile.
- Make a pudding and you have a sweet treat.
