Making the same rice recipes on repeat? Jazz up your weekly menus with four takes on this versatile, gluten-free grain. Savor a warm breakfast made with fragrant jasmine rice, bold spices like turmeric and ginger, and a satisfying runny egg. For lunch or dinner, go for a Thai or Southwest spin. Flavor rice with coconut milk, green curry paste, and tender shrimp, or build your bowl with steak, peppers, and creamy avocado. Finally, stir up something sweet with red and white jasmine rice, coconut milk, honey, and cinnamon for a comforting, post-dinner bite.
