    Here in Portugal, rice is a very important suplement, seen that we have it almost every meal. Whether it is with meat, fish, or just vegetables. We eat it in a lot of different ways and many times we eat rice and potatoes together with something else (which I consider a mistake).

    Rice pudding is a dish made from rice mixed with water or milk and sometimes other ingredients. Different variants are used for either desserts or dinners. When used as a dessert, it is commonly combined with a sweetener.

    Rice with milk we usually eat at home sometimes. The paella that is a Valencian dish but that has long been adopted by all Spaniards in their diet. Rice with asparagus. Non dry dried rice with peeled prawns, squid is like a paella but more simplified.

    Potatoes I would eat every day. We have the salmorejo that in Cordoba as a gazpacho base but in the province of Cádiz with that term we have a dish based on cooked potato, with boiled egg, spring onion, parsley and seasoned with olive oil and vinegar, a kind of salad of potato

    We also have a dish called arroz a la cubana, which is boiled rice passed through the pan to make it more tasty, tomato sauce and on top of the mountain a fried egg and two salsichas.
    In the traditional stew in the broth you can put noodles or very little rice so that the broth does not thicken.


    Sticky rice with monkfish and shrimp. It can be done in a thousand ways, prawns and squid, prawns and peas, e.t.c.

    It all looks and sounds delicious. I love rice, and potatoes. Really like Spanish and Portuguese food in general. The only thing I quibble with is how in some areas and restaurants the beef and lamb are too well done. I'm with the French: unless you're stewing it, it should be no more than medium rare. Italians are sometimes guilty of overcooking these meats too.



    My mother often made me a "soup" of hot milk and rice with butter and sugar and sometimes a bit of cinnamon when I came in from the cold, sort of a very milky rice pudding :)

    Minestra di riso al latte: a little misjudgment there as it needs more milk.

    I have no idea why people enjoy eating rice. White rice doesn't have taste, just full of carbohydrates.
    I really enjoy much more traditional European food, with history of 5 thousand years at least. Long live BUCKWHEAT!!!

    Can't talk to a man who would prefer buckwheat (yuck) to risotto and paella. :)


    Your WHG and EHG ancestors ate a ton of seafood and fish. This should be right up your alley.

    Don't yell at me if it's not authentic enough, Carlo. :)




    I guess you turn up your nose to Amerindian potatoes too? Not me. I bless them every time I eat them. :)



    Seriously, I don't know much about buckwheat, but rice has the ability to absorb incredible amounts of flavor from the foods with which it is mixed. As for "Chinese" white rice, I would have to agree with you. I don't see the point of it. To me, it's dry as dust. I only eat roast pork fried rice, which is, of course, much more fattening. :) Thank God for a good metabolism.

    I'm not lying when I say this but I tend to buy an extra container of white rice when I buy Chinese to have as a snack later on when I feel hungry at night. I don't know why I like it but I just do, maybe it's the texture

    ^^To each their own. I use it to make the rice, milk, sugar soup I pictured above, or Sicilian fried rice balls.



    Technically, they should be made with arborio rice, but waste not want not, as they say.

    Taste in food is as different as attraction in mates.

    Whatever makes you happy is my motto.

    I've never eaten a bowl of white rice. Pork fried rice only. (Rarely)

    Cuban rice is a dish that children like very much, also to the elderly. It is a dish of Cuban cuisine of Spanish origin. I do not remember it in my children's diet, but in the 80's It came back from nothing and became very popular. At the beginning it was made with banana but then the bananas were replaced by sausages, in other latitudes I would like with bacon strips. Children love rice simply boiled and mix everything, but if you pass the rice a little in the pan better, at least for an adult.

    Some brilliant mind has converted the "pasta alla gricia" (a Lazio and center-italian typical recipe) in a risotto.
    I haven't experienced it yet, but the temptation is strong.

    Here it is.

    Ingredients for 2 people

    Preparation time: 30 minutes
    Difficulty: Easy
    • Pork cheek (“Guanciale di maiale”), 120 g;
    • Carnaroli rice, 120 g;
    • Pecorino Romano cheese, 50 g;
    • Black pepper, abundant;
    • Salt to taste.
    • Chicken broth 350 ml.

    Preparation

    Slice the pork cheek into strips. In a saucepan, brown it with soft flame so that it loses a large part of its fat and become crispy. Then remove it from the pan, keeping aside all the fat filtering it with a strainer: it will serve to stir in the risotto.

    Toast the rice in the same saucepan without adding fat until it becomes translucent. Sprinkle it with a glass of wine and add a ladle of the chicken stock at a time and cook (about 16 minutes).

    Whip the risotto with the pecorino cheese, the butter and the cheek fat, adjusting it with the stock in order to obtain a perfect consistency. Serve the rice in a plate and sprinkle it with plenty of minced black pepper.

    Complete the plate with the strip cheek in the center.

    This is the original link for the recipe

    Enjoy your meal! ;)

    Brilliant indeed. :) I'm making it tomorrow. Well, I'll make it if I can find guanciale.

    Oh, the hell with it, I'll use pancetta if I have to...

    Eheh... good job: guanciale is a product not always on hand.
    In this case it's better not to be too purist: a smoked pancetta of good quality can be a valid substitute

    The best option is a high-end industrial feed if you can not or do not want to spend so much money a mid-range feed. Fresh meat has very little protein for a dog and compound feed already has rice, so you are giving your dog a minimum of feed by adding natural meat and rice to increase the amount so your dog will have a bad growth generating in the future health problems that will force him to have an expense in veterinarians and treatments spending ten times more than what is now being saved by cheating himself. Boiled rice mixed with bread crumbs goes well a day or two when the dog has diarrhea from having eaten something in the street or at home that should not.

    Choose a brand and do not change. Dogs have very few taste receptors on the tongue compared to humans, they split the food and swallow, they do not turn the food around in their mouth, they are guided by the smell. To be changing the brand dog with the argument that it must be boring to always eat the same thing is a human projection. Brand changes are not good because they control the intestinal flora of the dog. With 5 months has to eat three times a day. I am not in favor of measuring the quantities, at first it will seem that he eats more than the bill and it is a ruin but he ends up regulating himself and will eat what he needs. From 7 months, two servings a day and a year, 1 serving a day. If he is of big race and male as I understood, I would give him puppy fodder until he was two years old, if he is a female until one and a half years old, then he goes to one for an adult dog.
