Do you have any good ideas for rice meals? I'm a student, and I don't have a huge amount of time, but I like cooking up a bunch of rice at the start of the week and using it throughout the week in stuff. The problem is, all I can think of to make with it is some steamed veggies and turkey breast burger things.
Can you guys point me to some websites or offer any ideas?
I sometimes make red beans and rice which is pretty economical for a student. Just cook up some onion and greenpepper and add your favorite seasonings. Add a can of kidney beans and serve over rice. Or add a can of stewed tomatoes to rice and make Spanish rice.
It's for sure, its cheap in the large packages.
I've also made salads with rice using pasta salad recipes, just substituting rice.

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup raisins

Fill peppers equally with rice mixture; set upright in a shallow 1 1/2-quart baking pan. Pour remaining tomato sauce into pan around peppers. Cover and bake in a 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle peppers evenly with cheese. Continue to bake until cheese is golden brown (about 15 more minutes).
