Yes, OP is original poster, and now, back to rice.

Zhizara, I was messing around on Amazon and you can get 9lbs of rice for $20~. They are the nice blends, three different types. If you are going to spend the money you might as well get some variety.

When my wife was on a special diet, we couldn't use any pre-packaged mixes, so
I came up with this mix. We liked it.


All spices and flavorings are dry.
1 TBSP Chicken Buillion
1 tsp dried minced onion
1 TBSP Parsley minced
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Ginger
1/2 tsp Pepper
2 tsp Seasoned Salt

Even when using the box stuff, I always saute some onion, garlic,
sweet bell peppers and celery first. Those would be good in your own too.

I is OP. I originated the thread so OP is Original Poster.

I asked Alix to rename the thread because were were getting into a very interesting discussion about ALL rice.

I also wanted something cute to attract the attention of other DCers so they'd get involved.

Thanks Alix.

Check out the Hong Kong Market in Gretna (925 Behrman Hwy) Not sure if they have blends....but tons of rice variety. Look on the left.. just inside the front door.

Fun!

PS....Lots of rice seasonings too!!

Easy Rice recipe for you. Tastes yummy but has a strange name. It was brought home by my MIL from a church pot luck to her family. They had no name for it and one of her children piped up and called it Ralph. It's been Ralph ever since. In spite of the name, it's a tasty and easy one pot dish, though it wasn't in the beginning. I've just altered the cooking technique to transform it from a rice casserole to a stove top meal.

Ingredients:
1 cup brown rice (long grain white rice if you prefer it)
1 stalk celery, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. Liptons Chicken Noodle Soup with meat
1 tsp. chicken soup base
1/2 tsp. rubbed sage (optional)
1/4 tsp. ground pepper (optional)
2 3/4 cups water (2 1/2 cups if using white rice)

In a three quart lidded pot, without the lid, brown the ground beef. Add all other ingredients. Reduce heat to simmer and cover. Cook for 1 hour if using the brown rice, or 45 minutes with white rice. serve with butter.

Silly question but why do you put beef and chicken together?

Thanks very much, UB. I copied down the address and info. I'll have to see if I can talk my neighbor into taking me.

Thanks too, for the yummy looking recipe. I printed myself a copy to try.

I'll be shopping tomorrow, I'll look to see if they have anything fancy to try. I am going to get the wild rice.

So far I'm seeing some nice add ins. I know I'll be adding some of the dried green onions I found. Its a good size jar and I've used most of it up in just a few weeks.

Red rice is also called cargo rice. Where I live (SE ON), it is in the Thai food section in the grocery store. Probably available in ethnic groc. stores. Cargo rice/red rice has a nutty flavour--takes about 45 minutes to cook. Nice addition to rice dishes.

And, BTW, wild rice is not a rice, it is the seeds of an aquatic grass and the state grain of the state of MN.
