I don't like rice but DC do so I wanted to make an effort to serve it more often.

I can make curry & risotto but I need other ideas. Something with a sauce, perhaps?

Stew, chilli, any kind of pasta sauce, a big pile of raosted veg, roasted fish, anything really.

Fish and peas work well - a rice risotto style.

Kedgeree is very easy... My DCs wolf it down.

Paprika chicken, simple stir fries, or do egg fried rice with prawns and peas.

Tuna kedgeree is nice.
Also ratatouille goes well with rice.

Lots of ideas, thank you.

I made kedgeree a few weeks ago & DC loved it. I'd forgotten about that. Stroganoff should be easy enough too, thank you.

Jambalaya is good.

Grilled chicken or fish
Chicken in breadcrumbs
Sausage casserole
Beef casserole (I do a tomato one in slow cooker)

P.s to make rice more interesting add turmeric or soy sauce

Rice balls, cook rice in stock, leave it to absorb the stock, add onions, peas etc and form into balls. Oven bake or fry, and serve with dips.

Chilli con carne with rice
Basically, make anything you would normally accompany with potato but instead leave the potato out and serve a portion of ice.

Ribs are nice with rice or you could make sticky chicken drumsticks.

Artichook Mon 01-Apr-13 07:54:29

Roasted veg are nice with rice
Jerk chicken
Lamb steaks and Greek salad

Nasi Goreng
Any foods from Asia except noodle dishes

Meatballs in gravy

I'm doing more paella recently. Safron(or tumeric), paprika for smokiness, fish, prawns, squid and/or mussels.

It's a little like risotto to prepare but all the liquid goes in at the same time, you use a wider saucepan and you don't have to stir all the time.

Also, pilaff are good - parsley, preserved lemon, nuts and all kinds I'd other stuff, then cook with the top of the rice covered with butter wrappers.

You could serve almost any fish and vegetables with rice!

Or do fried rice.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 01-Apr-13 12:00:54

Another vote for paella.
Peppers stuffed with flavoured rice.
When my dds were small they used to like rice with soy sauce and (frozen) soy beans (or even frozen peas) or fresh broccoli, plus omelette strips or cashews or tofu for protein.
Rice and peas
