I made rice for a friend once who commented that she generally found rice to be boring. While I didn’t know that at the time, I couldn’t help but notice she scraped up every last bit of it from her plate, which leads me to believe that there are few foods people don’t really like; rather, they’ve just not had them made very well. Rice can be boring, but so can pasta or broccoli or steak if you don’t cook with some enthusiasm. Really, even a man can be boring if he doesn’t make a bit of effort. We all need help now and then. This rice dish is full of flavor. Buy the big container of mixed rice called Royal Blend if you can find it. It cooks quickly and is a delicious mixture of brown, white, red and wild. Definitely not boring.
