So I've got a shit load of leftover rice as I made way too much. What's your fav way to use it up co/ck/s?
I'm thinking of making some into calas and the rest into stuffing for peppers
A yogi once told me that it was good for your body to eat only white rice for a weeks. Morning, lunch, diner......... She was also taking laxatives. But she was sure about how good it can be
Are you 21? Can you buy alcohol?
If yes, there's an easy way to get rid of a bit of it.
Get a bottle of cheap chardonnay. It can be any wine, but red wines turn everything purple and other whites tend to be soft on the flavor.
Get 5 or 6 chicken breasts and a pack of fresh(not canned) mushrooms.
Salt and pepper your chicken and plop them in a casserole dish. (I use a 9 x 13in one).
Pour in wine until breasts are just under half submerged. This should be most of the bottle, but not the whole thing.
Dust the tops of the breasts with paprika and dump sliced mushrooms all over it.
They shrink a lot in the cooking, so don't be afraid to smother the un-cooked dish in mushrooms.
Oh, and if you want a little more fatty flavor, a pat of butter under each breast can be a nice touch.
Toss that shit into the oven at 350 for an hour(flipping the breasts once halfway through) and you're done.
Serve over a pile of rice.
The juice made from the chicken seeping in the wine is great flavor for any rice even after the breasts are gone, so save as much as you don't eat for later.
eating nothing but white rice is never optimal. just like a 'juice cleanse' or any other temporary ascetic diet, the feeling that you're 'cleaning out your system' is entirely a placebo brought on from not eating any fat or salt or whatever for a few days. you're also depriving yourself of a shit ton of vitamins and minerals that you'd get if you were eating a reasonable, varied diet
You've seriously never had fried rice?
Where do you live that you don't have any form of Chinese takeout whatsoever?
I once did that too OP, had a big tupperware thing of white rice just sitting in my fridge.
So I just cooked up some ground beef and added taco seasoning, then mixed it up with kidney beans, the rice, and shredded mozzarella cheese (not that plastic shit that comes pre-shredded in bags) and put it in a tortilla with some red salsa on the side. Took me less than 10 minutes and tasted comfy as fuck.
Would midnight snack/10
put rice in bowl
fry meat (ham, bacon, ground beef, ground sausage, spam are all good choices)
put meat on rice
fry 1 or 2 eggs (sunny side up or over easy, keep yolk runny)
put egg on rice
add a decent amount of soy sauce
mix it up, breaking the egg yolk while doing so
delicious any time of day
that's sort of what kheer is. I like adding some combo of these flavors: orange zest/juice (or orange blossom water if you can find it), dried cherries, almonds, cinnamon, cardamom, and sweet white wine or a bit of a neutral spirit (no reason not to add a splash of vodka to most sauces and stews).
Overcook it until it turns to paste.
Then form it into shapes or use molds.
When it dries it becomes a pseudo-plastic, and a very good one that if thick enough can withstand weathering.
Before plastics were made from milk (casein), rice plastics were used to make edible cake decorations that had to have a more solid structure than sugar based constructs.
my mom is allergic to a shit ton of things. in order to find out what exactly, she had to eat white rice only for a week and add things to her diet slowly after that. turns out she is allergic to almost all nuts, a lot of fruits (apples, pears, peaches, plums, pineapple and more), some vegetables. oh, she also has hay fever for good measure.
