Rice Rice Baby!  We're slap bang in the middle of National Rice Week which this year runs from 18th to 24th September 2017. It really is a staple in my cooking repertoire. A quick check in my pantry and I've currently got seven types. Basmati, Pudding, Spanish Paella, Basmati & Wild, Arborio Risotto, Sushi and Brown Basmati. That's not including the pouches of ready cooked in both my freezer and cupboard. In Britain, we now eat five times more rice per person than we did forty years ago and consumption is still on the rise as more of us enjoy its taste, versatility and take advantage of convenient microwaveable packs. (I will put my hands up an admit that when I first spotted packs of precooked rice in the shops I was a total food snob about them and thought it was something that I'd never use. How wrong was I?! I am a total convert.)


This year’s National Rice Week is focusing on the versatility of rice. This single ingredient can be eaten hot or cold, sweet or savoury and can be enjoyed as a breakfast, lunch, dinner, or pudding. My roundup below comprises of 25 Rice based Recipes from top UK food bloggers. Whether you’re looking for inspo to use up leftovers, rustle up a quick midweek meal, or discover a new go-to salad there’s sure to be something for you below. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the post for all the fantastic Rice Pudding variants. But before the recipes I'm a sucker for factoids so here's five things you may not know about rice. Number five is my favourite...
  1. Rice is the main food for half the worlds population
  2. Rice is cultivated on every continent except Antarctica
  3. There are over 29,000 grains in one pound of long grain rice
  4. Rice is the symbol of life and fertility, which is why it is thrown at weddings
  5. The Chinese word for rice is the same as their word for food
