velochic, there is a good rice porridge that is good to make out of the last batch of rice. It is called congee. It sounds gross, but you may like it. It's more like a soup that can be thick, thin or medium depending on the amount of water you add. Basically, you boil the rice in any kind of stock or water or both for several hours. Then you add chicken, seafood, pork, or beef. And some thinly sliced nappa cabbage, salt, pepper, soy sauce etc. There are different variations. Let me know if you'd like to try it and I can give you a recipe.

I'm actually making a Mexican-style soup with leftover Mexican rice to have with dinner tonight.

I'd make up a big pot of jambalaya with quartered and sliced andoioulle sausage and this seafood mix I buy frozen from Trader Joe's with scallops, shrimp, and squid. Then I use the leftovers from that to make stuffed bell peppers. In fact, I HAVE done that, many times, and everyone loves it!

If you want to experiment with your cooked rice, dehydrate it and you will end up with true instant rice and nothing like the stuff on the store shelves. It might open up a whole new realm of possibilities in your recipes.

I've made rice pudding with dried cherries, using arborio rice so that it comes out nice and creamy. I can't remember what kind of dairy product I was using, milk, half-and-half, or cream.

Have you tried making brown rice, with raisins, slivered almonds, dried apricots, etc? A little butter, salt, and pepper, and it's yummy.

Boiled Rice Pudding

Originally Posted by Bilby View Post

Basically it is uncooked rice brought to the boil in milk instead of water with a bit of vanilla. Just like a risotto, the rice absorbs the milk. Part way thru the cooking process and near the end, you add dried fruit (for us it was always sultanas and currants but don't see why you couldn't use other fruits). You don't want it soupy or like a paste but a bit drier than a risotto. Serve it hot in bowls and top with your choice of jam or syrup or even stewed fruits, and milk (we normally use evaporated milk) or cream. Some people like it cold as well but I always preferred it hot. (You can add sugar to the cooking process as well but just be mindful of the sweetness of the dried fruits and the added toppings.)

When my mum returns from visiting my brother, I will ask her for anything that I missed and see if she recalls the quantities and will repost if I do but we both tend to remember these sort of recipes when we make them rather than off the cuff! It would be pretty close though.
I did check with my mother and the only clarifications she added was to add the dried fruit and some sugar about a minute or less before serving.

I cook rice and use it to stuff cornish hens or chicken along with chopped broccoli, feta cheese and black olives. It comes out pretty good.

Baja Fried Rice

I came up with a Fried Recipe that I call Baja Fried Rice. It is very tasty and a nice variation to the standard Mexican or Spanish rice. If you would like to see the recipe it is in my signature link. I think it is about the fourth recipe down the page...

I have had a lot of requests for that recipe, so it must be good!
