Quick!! Something interesting to do to rice as a side dish

16crab | Oct 16, 2009 01:17 PM

There's loads of threads on what to do with large amounts of leftover rice to make it a meal in and of itself (fried rice, rice fritters, rice puddings etc etc etc...)

But I'm looking for something interesting to do tonight with freshly-cooked rice. I've had steaks marinating all day, plan to grill some zucchini along side. Reason I say rice is a) I have plenty, b) we've had potatoes a couple of other times this week, and c) I have a four-year-old who will eat the steak but not the zucchini.. if I do rice I can reserve some of it plain for him before I spruce it up for us (I try to serve us all more or less the same thing whenever possible...)

My fridge and cupboard are pretty well stocked. What to do? Going to start cooking in about half an hour (dinner time is early around here in respect of said 4-year-old's bedtime)...
