Rice is a staple in many diets all over the world

It is also known for its inclusion in signature dishes in countries such as Italy, Indonesia and China. Not only this, but in some cultures, the rice goddess Dewi Sri is even worshipped as the inspirer of Bali’s rice farming and the God of Sustenance.

There are so many ways to prepare rice; it can be fried, steamed and boiled and works as a great carbohydrate in almost any meal. Some popular rice dishes include Spanish paella, Italian arancini, Indonesian Nasi Goreng, Chinese fried rice and Indian biryani that are all delicious and relatively easy to make. Not only is rice versatile, it also has plenty of nutrients including fibre, magnesium and vitamin B and being a naturally gluten free grain, it is also easy on digestion and a good option for those who suffer with intolerances.

How to: Rice - FAQs

How to cook rice?

How to cook rice completely depends on the type you’re cooking. For example, long grain rice like basmati needs to be thoroughly washed before being cooked to get rid of excess starch, while brown rice needs more water to cook than white rice and takes slightly longer. With a HelloFresh box, all of the instructions you need to cook rice are on the recipe cards you receive alongside your ingredients.

How to make fried rice?

To make fried rice, you need to take your pre-boiled rice and put it to the side. Then, take a saucepan or wok and heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil over a medium high heat. Once the pan has reached an optimum temperature, add 2 lightly whisked eggs and cook until set. When your eggs are cooked, add the pre-boiled rice back into the pan and mix with a little soy sauce and any vegetables, protein or seasoning of your choice and serve.

Is rice gluten free?

Yes, rice is naturally gluten free.

How much rice per person?

How much rice per person all depends on the dish and the diet you’re following. If you’re in a calorie deficit for example, you may want to weigh your individual rice and any ingredients you use to cook it as fried rice calories are not going to be the same as jasmine rice calories. However, if you are not paying attention to calories, it’s usually recommended to cook around 75g of rice per person.
