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…

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

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…

Pinoy Suman sa Ibos by ShaleeDP

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.

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…

Basmati Rice with Herbs

Basmati Rice with Herbs by Nancy Miyasaki

This is an excellent, flavorful side dish that goes really well with fish, shrimp, or chicken. It's like a mild version of a Briyani...easy to make and full of healthy ingredients. I thought the Parmesan cheese was weird addition, but the flavor blends nicely and it isn't over powering. Enjoy!

Harusame Salad

Harusame Salad by Suzi

Years ago my daughter lived in Hollywood, FL near the beach and we'd go to this Japanese restaurant off of Harrison Street. I can't recall the name of the restaurant but I do recall their Harusame Salad. Crispy fried rice sticks with purple cabbage, carrots, scallions and bean sprouts. The dressing was a Kimchi sauce. I have…

Tomato Rice Pilaf

Tomato Rice Pilaf by Mary Joseph

This originated as a Lebanese dish that my mom always used to make, I tweaked it a bit adding tomatoes and mint and leaving out the meat that it called for. If you're a cheese lover this would be amazing with crumbled French Feta mixed in.

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…

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!

Lamb Risotto

Lamb Risotto by Mary Joseph

I want to call this a "Lebanese Risotto" because I used a lot of the spices and ingredients that are in a lot of the recipes I grew up cooking. So needless to say this would go great with a nice fatoush salad or a tomato & cucumber salad with a side of Hummus and pita bread.
