I love rice… Thanks to my father genes 🙂 I like it no matter how it’s cooked being a main course or a side dish. It’s just a kind of food that I would eat all the time. Unfortunately the boyfriend is not such a fan. He’s more of a pasta man thanks to his Italian genes! But I still cook my rice every so often most of the times being in risotto form. But I’ve also cooked some of our traditional dishes that involve rice and it has been approved.
The only rule I have for cooking rice is that I don’t do it plain. You know, nice white rice? Well, I’m not allowed to cook it! By boyfriend call it “hospital food” and says there’s no flavour to it, no matter what I do. So my options are to always mix something in it. When I cook rice as a side dish I always add some sort of vegetable just like this rice with peas. The cooking method is always the same, I only change the vegetable.
