    My favorite is rice with hard boiled eggs and green onions.Sorry I have no measurements. O.k. you've cooked and fluffed the rice and you let it cool down a bit. You want your hard boiled eggs slightly warm. You'll saute chopped green onions in some oil and butter for a few minutes then add your rice and fry it up for a couple of minutes. Chop the hard boiled eggs and stir into the rice but don't continue to cook. This is a tasty rice dish. Oops! Salt and pepper to taste.

    Most broccoli cheese and rice recipes are easy and very good, You should be able to find one easy online.The best ones I have tried use cream of chicken or mushroom soup.

    Are you wanting a hot rice dish? or cold salad side?

    (being that you mentioned one that goes with cooked meat and salads)

    For cold, I'd make a marinated rice salad.

    For hot, I'd do a blend of brown and wild rice, and add in lots of chopped veggies.

    If you never made one before I would suggest going to a restaurant and ordering a big container of the rice dish you want. So much easier then being stressed with a new to you dish.

    This is the very best rice pilaf recipe I've found. I entertain frequently and use it often.

    4 tablespoons butter (not margarine!)
    1 handful fine egg noodles
    1 (large) clove garlic, minced
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 cup sliced mushrooms
    1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
    1 cup white rice (regular uncooked I prefer basmati rice)
    2 cups chicken broth
    1/2 teaspoon (or to taste) salt
    1/2 cup lightly toasted pine nuts (optional)


    Directions
    1) Melt butter in a dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in noodles and let them brown watch closely and do not let butter or noodles burn. Add garlic, onion, mushroom and dill weed. Saute 3 minutes. Stir in rice and saute until it takes on a whitish, non-translucent appearance.

    2) Meanwhile, heat the broth and salt to boiling in another pan. Pour over rice mixture and stir briefly. Cover pan tightly and simmer 25-30 minutes (steam will subside toward end of cooking time). Do not peek. Or, transfer to large casserole dish with a lid and microwave for ten minutes on high and then ten minutes on defrost.

    3) Remove pan from heat. Toss pilaf lightly; then cover pan, placing a dry paper towel between pan and lid to absorb moisture. Let stand 10 minutes (a very important step). Serve topped with pine nuts, if desired.
    serves 6-8

    Herbed Rice from Old-fasioned herb recipes:
    1/4 c. butter, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 c. chopped onion, 1/4 c. chopped celery, 2 c. rice. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly to keep rice from sticking. Add: 21/3 c. chicken broth or stock. Cover and cook over low heat 10-15 min. Remove from heat; stir in 1 tsp. marjoram, 1 Tbs. parsley. Replace lid and let stand for 15 minutes. Recipe calls for fresh herbs but I've used dried. Family loves it.

    HI guys,

    Thank you so much.... it is exactly what I am looking for and I will be trying out many of the recipes. Do you think I could substitute the chicken stock with vegetable stock as one of the people eating it is a vegetarian?

    Hugs

    I certainly think it is possible to exchange in the herb rice recipe.

    You can always substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock. I have a vegetarian friend and that is what she does.

    I never measure, but I go by the size of the pan I am using.

    Quick ......
    1 stick butter
    1/2 bag of thin noodles
    1/2 box of instant rice
    salt and pepper to taste


    In a large frying pan with cover...
    Melt 1 stick of butter.
    add 1/2 bag of THIN noodles on one side of the pan
    add about the same amount of INSTANT rice on the other side of the pan
    Stirring.....while browning.... watching carefully, stirring so it will not burn,
    when it is brown, pour in enough water to barely cover the rice and noodles.
    Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover, turn off the burner (electric), but leave it there, and let it set for 5 minutes. Water should be absorbed, stir in salt and pepper to taste
    You can go from there and add whatever you like, onion, broccoli, etc.
