  • HOT DOG OCTOPUS!!! Slice one end of the hot dog in slices leaving the top as a head, boil it in water and it looks like an octopus! http://www.octodog.net/ And food color the rice blue!
  • Instead of the water, use coconut milk (NOT cream of coconut) or orange juice. Try putting a squeeze of lemon or lime and the zest in the rice. Add pineapple chunks and the juice in the can instead of all the water in the recipe. Use leftover cold rice with different things in your fridge, leftovers, veggies, to make fried rice the next day. I know others but I don't know if your kids like veggies or mushrooms or other fruit, but you can add just about anything to rice. Leftover chicken or sliced ham.
  • Add egg and fry it? Add a bit of meat in very small pieces and some peas or something similiar? I cook very often with white rice and something, it goes nicely with steaks, chops, etc etc
  • Add in chicken or beef bullion into the water while you cook it. Add some spices - parsley for color, or cinnamon and butter. Or for a special treat, what my best friend's mom did years and years ago, add a little brown sugar! They're very simple and easy to do, but they lend flavor to the rice so it's not so plain anymore.
  • Turn it into a mushroom or mixed vegetable pilau. Simply add sliced mushrooms or some (small) frozen vegetables such as peas, carrots, etc to the pan with the rice together with a splash of extra virgin olive oil or butter. You can also delicately spice this with some cumin / coriander / curry powder if you want but don't overdo this.
  • Let them try to eat it with chopsticks....I always had more interest in rice when I had chopsticks to fiddle with!
  • a trick from south america (colombia) to get the young kids into rice.., their staple diet, they boil the rice in coke... (the bubbly kind you get in a bottle), it slightly browns and sweetens the rice, then reduce the amount of coke used as they become used to eating it. nice to have with a salad too. Dave

  • i like to add food colouring into the rice you cant get all kinds of colours
  • i like to add food colouring to the rice so you can get red pink blue green orange purple etc
  • A bit of saffron warmed on a griddle dissolved in a tablespoon of milk and added to the rice gives it not only a lovely aroma but a great yellow color too. sometimes you can add green peas to the rice and at other times finely chopped cilantro to give it color. If while cooking rice you add just a tiny amount of butter to it the taste will be more appealing to the kids too.

  • we like white rice with cream of mushroom soup, only add half of can of milk to make it a little thicker
  • my dad mixes other foods with it, like peas and corn
  • put some cooked rice from the fridge into a saucepan. Put in some milk.. warm it up.. the rice will soak up the milk. Just keep gradually adding. It'll take time, and a lot of stirring, but the more you add the creamier it will get. Put in some sugar, raisins, and cinnamon. I don't know how much, I don't believe in recipes, I wing it. Just add to taste. Remember, you just keep adding milk, then the rice soaks it up, add milk, soaks it up, over and over, until you get the creamy consistency you want. MMMMMMM. yummy.
  • My kids love it when I add a can of cream of mushroom soup, a little butter, salt and pepper.
  • sour cabbage with onion and bacon aka lazy mans cabbage rolls mmmmm
  • you could toss out the lifeless empty white rice and get whole grain rice. it comes in different flavors and textures. sure brown rice costs more. its shelf life is shorter because you cook it more often. one cup of rice to two cups of water. bring the water to a boil, dump in the rice, keep it boiling, then bring the temperature down to a near simmer so the boiling water makes little chimney airvents in the rice. the lowest temp so the burbling continues is how i cook it. then when the water is almost gone. i drain that water in the sink and cool it off and serve. it is so good. one could probably save that liquid for someother recipe.
  • Food colring, but there are site which I can't think of that would have great ideas.
