Rice is an amazing and versatile product with a wide range of types to choose from including brown rice, basmati rice, aborio rice, Jasmine rice and wild rice.
A lovely alternative to plain rice, this rice is jazzed up with garlic, spring onion and mushrooms and is cooked in chicken stock.
For a real Christmas centerpiece, try a goose! If you need any help with the trussing, watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Roast Goose Video.
This brown rice salad recipe is made every Christmas without fail. It is a favourite of every member of the family, and whenever we have guests, they remark on the flavour of this beautiful colourful brown rice salad as well. Goes great with a bbq, other crisp leaf salads, cold meat, just about everything, use as a side dish or as a main with other salads and meat. The green and red capsicum and the black raisins make it a very colourful salad.
A great vegetarian dish that is reeaalllly filling...! Can take some time as the liquid needs to absorb bit by bit to get the creamiest result without burning the bottom of the pot. So make this when you have a bit of time. I also buy pre-sliced mushrooms to save on prep time.
If you are looking for a new flavour for your risotto try this version that includes chicken and asparagus; perfect for a midweek meal.
