Help please, hubby says rice is boring.

He's not a fan of rice.

I am.

I want to make some rice to accompany our salmon tonight. I'm looking for easy, but tasty ideas.

Thank you.

Re: Help please, hubby says rice is boring.

How about asking him to make the side dish since he doesn't like rice?

And I'd have to eat it?

Not an option!

I'm a big relyer on Campbells Cream of Mushroom Soup.  There, I said it publicly.  Nothing easier and we both like the taste on or in about anything.

Re: Help please, hubby says rice is boring.

turn your rice into more of a pilaf. use broth instead of water, you could add a big spoon of pesto, some sun dried tomatoes to the water. fresh chopped herbs? i serve rice alot. dh can't have potatoes. add a pkg of one of the dry soups into the water, knorr veg is good.

I love Mushroom Risotto. It is a bit time consuming to make. But it tastes great.

Yellow rice?

 

I use Mahatma pre-packaged.  DH loves it (and no, it's not an A+ for nutrition, all you hawks out there).  Of course if you have the ingredients for scratch-made, by all means.

 

It adds great color to the plate.  Spinach, parsley, peas all add contrast, in or beside.  Or on top.
