Rice dishes make a deliciously warming ― but not heavy ― weeknight meal.
Wild Rice Congee
This easy twist on traditional Chinese rice porridge makes a wonderful one-dish supper on a cool autumn night. You can top it with shredded leftover meat, such as roast chicken, duck, or pork.
Grilled Shrimp with Lemon-Pesto Rice
Prepared pesto makes this dish a snap, but you can use homemade if you have some on hand.
Korean Beef Rice Bowl
If you can't find toasted sesame seeds for the finishing touch, stir regular sesame seeds in a frying pan over low heat until golden, about 1 minute.
Dilled Spinach Rice
This easy dish makes a great veggie main course with a salad and some bread and cheese on the side. You can use frozen spinach if you can't find it fresh or prefer to avoid it until the E. coli situation is resolved.
Chicken with Rice (Arroz con Pollo)
This easy one-dish meal is a classic in any language.
