 What's your favorite kind of rice-white, Jasmine, brown? How do you usually make rice? What do you usually serve it with?

I love brown rice but don't make it often because dh and dd won't eat it.  So I usually make basmati.  I serve it with everything!  We eat rice a lot in our house.

Yellow mostly. Then white is 2nd because i can add flavor to it....like coconut or salsa.

We get brown basmati. Don't make it very often anymore. We seem to eat more barley and quinoa

My favorite is risotto (if that counts).  Butternut squash, mushroom or seafood risotto!

otherwise, I usually just make plain white as a side with something like Chinese food, or rice a roni (broccoli au gratin).

We dont eat many rice dishes but  I do grind it into flour to use it in my GF baking(brown, white and sushi rices most often), we prefer quinoa in places we would traditionally use rice

We haven't been using alot of rice lately but when we did we liked to get the wild rice blends and white rice.

 My family doesn't like brown rice either, but I tried it in fried rice, and they didn't mind that.

I use jasmine rice.  About half of the time I just cook it plain and the other half I make Spanish rice.  Once in a while I will boil it in chicken broth and add cilantro.
