Spicy Rice


Recommended Posts

I got some organic wild rice blend at the store the other day, and decided today to cook some up for birdy breakfast. I used the usual 2x water to 1x rice ratio. I did 1 c water to 1/2 c rice - but you can vary that to make for any quantity. I then added an extra 1/4 c of water to compensate for the dried spices. To the cooking rice I added crumbled Ceylon cinnamon sticks, star anise broken from star into individual 'pods', dried hot peppers (2), broken into smaller pieces and about a teaspoon of organic raw demerara sugar. I brought it to a boil then covered and simmered about 20 minutes. It was a huge hit. I tasted a little of the rice and it was spicy and very fragrant. Bonus - it made the kitchen smell heavenly.


Tip: Wash hands after preparing and before rubbing eyes.... >.<

Perhaps a dumb question, but is there a reason to add sugar (even something that is a bit lower processed as the demerara)? Is it just for flavor or is there a nutrient other than the simple carb that is good for our fids?


PS - the rice sounds yummy!
