Allow grains to soak in water 20 minutes prior to cooking to maximize grain elongation. For perfect pilafs, saute rice in oil to firm and toast the starchy exterior. Rice: dress it up! The versatility of rice is just one of its key benefits. Below are simple ways to make aromatic rice even more special. Starting with hot, cooked rice...sprinkle with fried scallions, shallots, garlic or ginger. Add grated lemon zest, chopped fresh mint, a dab of butter and cooked peas. Stir in peanut butter and chopped scallions; sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Stir in grated parmesan cheese and sauteed onions. Season with toasted sesame oil or tamari. Stir in chopped dried fruit and toasted nuts. When preparing...saute garlic, add rice and cook in chicken broth. Add whole cloves and a stick of cinnamon while cooking rice. Substitute a combination of chicken broth and white wine for water. Cook rice with a few saffron threads; stir in cooked peas. Cook with shiitake mushrooms for an earthy, smoky flavor.
