Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Red beans and rice

Red beans and rice by John Spottiswood

I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious! Normally, I serve this with a jerk marinated chicken or pork, but it also goes well with grilled fish, steak and many other treats. If you serve it with something that isn't spicy, try adding some of the spices…

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls)

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls) by lisa

Arancini means "little oranges" in Sicilian and they can be found all over Palermo. Cooked and flavored Arborio rice is formed around a filling of tomato, meat and peas, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until golden brown. When I make them they're about the size of a baseball,but you can make them slightly smaller. . Soft and crispy…

This is another variety of 'suman'. What I grew up with is the other type of suman but this is just as good, presented in a different packaging.

Italian Bean and Rice Soup

Italian Bean and Rice Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious soup culled from the treasure trove of recipes by Marcella Hazan. It can be made with pasta instead of rice, but is wonderful with Arborio rice. It's hearty and flavorful. Marcella would probably cringe, but I like to eat it with a healthy sprinkle of sumac. If you don't have sumac, black pepper will add flavor…

Cantonese Chinese Stir-Fried Sticky Rice / Chow Lor Mei Fan by Karen Chow

This is one of my favorite comfort dishes, and my Dad doesn't dare to not make it for Thanksgiving, otherwise there would be a family revolt! This is his recipe that he taught to me. I've heard of other versions with added chopped cooked taro, chestnuts, and other ingredients. Feel free to experiment. However, I feel that the…

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice by John Spottiswood

I was looking for an improved Mexican Rice recipe, so I adapted this one from the America's Test Kitchen cookbook. I used many of the same ingredients, but instead of baking it, which seemed like a waste of energy, I finished it in my rice cooker. The result was a very flavorful and wonderfully textured mexican rice. Browning the…

Arroz Congrí by Sergio Hernandez

Arroz Congrí or Moros y Cristianos as it's also known is the national dish of Cuba, their version of the rice and beans. The "Moors" refer to the black beans, and "Christianos" to the white rice - a reference to the early settlers of Cuba for whom the Reconquista of Spain was a recent memory.

Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…
