What's your go-to comfort food?
As someone who grew up eating a lot of Chinese dishes served family-style, I like to whip up fried rice at home on a regular basis. It's easy and oh-so-versatile. For special occasions like Chinese New Year, I like making Yangzhou fried rice, loaded with roast pork and shrimp. But most of the time I just like making a vegetarian fried rice using fresh finds from the farmer's market.
Recently I was asked by BlogHer to develop a recipe for RiceSelect™, which has a wide range of rice available, including brown rice, sushi rice, arborio rice, and American basmati rice. Since I love working with all types of rice, and making dishes from around the world like biryani, risotto, coconut rice, and rice pudding, I was more than happy to participate. (You can visit RiceSelect's site to find out more about its distinct types of rice and the many dishes you can make with each kind.)Read More
