That sounds good.

My favorite rice dish would have to be bagali polo, which is rice with dill and fava beans.

Last night I made a rice dish ("turkish rice pilau with eggplant and chickpeas) I found in my vegetarian times, it was really good. It might just replace lubia polo as my other favorite rice dish.

Chop Suey is my favorite thing with rice. Spanish Rice and stuffed peppers are both great rice dishes. Even though it doesn't use a lot of rice, porcupine meatballs is another of my favorite ways to use rice. I also like rice pudding. My mom used to make something called Glorified Rice, which I loved, but I don't know how it is made. I'll have to check into it.

I really like a nice saffron rice with a big plate of indian curry and poppadoms! Mmmm... so nice.

My other favourites would be wild rice w/ herbs and sushi!

I like the Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild rice. I was raised on that stuff. However, it's the only "boxed mix" rice that I make.

I'll eat rice plain, with stir-fry, or I'll use leftover cooked rice for fried rice, rice pudding, gumob, jamabalaya, mexican rice, rice pilaf, dirty rice, etc.

Arroz con Pollo (Jalisco)

Chicken breasts sauteed in butter with onions, green peppers & mushrooms. Add saffron steeped in chicken broth and a little tomato sauce and let it reduce. Pour the whole thing over spanish rice. -At least that's my best rendition.

My 2 favorite rice dishes are 1) any type of Asian fried rice - chockfull of vegetables, chicken, shrimp, etc.; & 2) a dish from my Girl Scout camping past that was simply a mixture of Minute Rice, drained canned tuna, American Cheese, & a can of stewed tomatoes.

Im not a big fan of white rice but I like Jambalaya or a good rissotto
Brown rice I like better I cook it with a little chicken broyh ,garlic and a tiny bit of cumin.I like it with stir fried vegetables,maybe some meat in a black bean sauce and for some strange reason I like to add red kidney beans to the mix.
