Hot Suff Rice
I created this yumminess when i realized that my chicken was going to be a little sweet and tangy so i wanted a bold hotness to blend nicely with it. Also brown rice is one of the few grains i can have (since i don't think i could get Chris to eat Quinoa or Barley... not sure i'm ready for that yet!) So here's what i did...
I have this GREAT Pampered Chef Microwave rice cooker so i loaded it up with
3 1/2 c of water
1 c brown rice
2 tbsp sliced green onions
3/4 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tspish of red pepper flakes
splash of olive oil
very small amount of I can't believe it's not butter light
Cook in the micro for 35 mins and DONE
This had a really nice kick that blended well with the chicken!
