Easy Oven Brown Rice
I am a terrible rice cook, but once I tried this method I can be confident that it will turn out every time!
Cashew Raisin Rice Pilaf
Very good low-fat rice pilaf. This dish is very good with poultry and pork dishes.
I believe I've posted a few fool-proof methods for cooking perfect rice, but this Persian version takes the grand prize, and it's not even close for second. The beauty of this method is that it doesn't rely on any specific measurements, or even exact times. This will make some of you very nervous, but just go with it.
An Italian rice ball made with white wine risotto, and a gooey mozzarella center. Fantastic for lunch or dinner - can be frozen.
Baked "Fried" Rice
If you don't have cold leftover rice around, this easy oven method will produce something very similar to the classic fried rice, with the perfect texture every time. Just like rice pilaf, the grains of rice get coated in fat before absorbing the cooking liquid, ensuring plump, tender, separate grains with no sticky clumps. Just adjust cooking time if using a different kind of rice or pan size. Garnish with green onions and serve with a runny poached egg on top if desired.
Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas
I got this recipe from a friend who is from Bethlehem. The flavors are just delicious. The possibilities of add-ins are endless.
Best Spanish Rice

Onigiri (Japanese Rice Balls)
Rice shaped in triangles or balls filled with your favorite ingredients. Common fillings are pickled plums or salmon but just about anything salty will work and plain is also very tasty. A yummy alternative to the American sandwich and a staple for any bento (Japanese boxed lunch). Store in the refrigerator.
