Okay, so i came up with a method: 1 bowl of rice or pasta for lunch, then alternate for dinner. Anyone have any good ideas about what to mix my rice with. Its just regular white rice. Currently I am mixing it with hot sauce, lol. Suggestions?

Hot sauce! haha that is pretty crazy.

Alright I am asian so I think I can help you on this man.

oatmeal - cook it with the rice
soy sauce - I would go w/ one that has lower sodium
butter - real butter
brown/black rice - cook different types of rice with white rice to give it more flavor, don't need to go 50/50, I go like 90/10 (its much cheaper that way)
cheese - sounds crazy I know, just try it
beans - some asian beans are really good with rice, probably need to go to asian grocery for this
spaghetti sauce - hey, rice is like pasta, kinda
dried up shredded ground beef/prok - again you probably need to buy at asian grocery store
basil - chop up some fresh herbs (learned this from Mexicans :))

I use to put baloney and processed American cheese on top of my rice when I was a kid. Not quite sure why I did that.

Rice is the best food in the world.

thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm thinking about just boiling some beans up with the rice, with some added hot sauce :evillaugh:

Anyone have a preference on which beans would be the best to make with the rice?

Tabasco sauce is great on everything. Soy sauce is good as well, but the sodium can be ridiculous if you load it up.

Try mixing some V8 juice and some hamburger with it . . I thought it would be nasty too but it's actually not bad.

In terms of price, how do groceries at an Asian market run?

Also adding cooked ground beef plus alfredo sauce and rice is delicious.

Amen. I love that ****!

The small, family run Asian grocery stores have very low prices because they have very low overhead expenses. Things like beans, hot sauce, and produce will be very cheap. I always try to shop at these places (FYI: I wouldn't buy fresh meat from these places, old fashioned Asian people don't care about cross contamination).

Then their are the Asian groceries that are like the Asian version of Whole Foods. Very upscale and very expensive.

Hopefully you are near a china-town or something like that.

Lime Juice is a good additive, but a little bit goes a looooong way

Lime juice, black beans, rice, and corn = deliciousness.

There's an asian grocery store about 9 blocks north of me.
Do you use a rice cooker to make your rice?

Yup. You could use just a pot on a stove, but a rice cooker really is the best way to go. I think the basic cheap ones go for like....$20. You don't need a fancy one that has digital controls, that is a waste of money.

Try it. I know it smells awful, but it is simply amazing. I never met anyone who tried Kimchi and didn't like it. Old, young, white, brown whatever

Almost anything goes well mixed with rice -- eggs, beans, meat, veggies, etc... It's pretty hard to go wrong. Just remember that hot sauce must be included.
