Apple Almond Brown Rice

 
I have been making apple rice dishes for eons and we love them all.  Recently, I tried a new recipe which we ended up preferring to any from the past.  For me, apples make any dish better.

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.
Do you have a favorite rice recipe? Please leave a comment, sharing it with us.

  7. Sounds good! My kids dislike rice, so perhaps if I mixed in fruit they might like it better!
