    It still amazes me how creamy and filling a risotto is when it has no creamy ingredients in it whatsoever! Risottos are so much easier to make than I assumed as well; this dish will definitely impress!

    This fried rice recipe uses leftover brown rice. Feel free to use cooked white rice, but make sure it's cold before making this dish. With rice, chicken, peas, peppers and onions, it's a good square meal.

    Nasi Goreng is a well known Indonesian fried rice dish. It can be enjoyed on its own or as a base for a larger meal. It's very easy to make and highly satisfying.

    A wonderfully hearty risotto that is creamier than most. Makes a warming meal. See the footnotes for variations - such as mushroom instead of asparagus. Even my unadventurous and uber-carnivorous brother thinks it's delicious!

    A Mexican-inspired quick chicken dish that is great for a midweek supper. An added bonus: it's a one-pot meal, so less washing up!

    A typical Cajun recipe, this is full of spicy, complex flavours. With lots of rice and vegetables, it is a great dish to make a small amount of meat go a long way, and offers a healthy balance of protein and carbohydrate.
