rice recipes jamie oliver

Jamie Oliver is an English chef best known for his many rice dishes. His recipes use various spices, vegetables and proteins in order to craft tasty meals.

Cook the rice according to package directions in a pot and allow it to cool before finely chopping herbs and chilli, zesting lemon, and finely mincing garlic.

Roasted Garlic Rice

This deliciously easy side dish will quickly become one of your favorites. Perfect for any meal involving meat, it also makes a fantastic party dish and will impress all your guests! For vegetarian or vegan versions simply substitute vegetable stock and increase garlic and parsley as desired.

To prepare Roasted Garlic Rice, combine the rice, butter (or trans fat free spread), water and seasoning in a medium saucepan and mix well before bringing to a boil. When tender, remove from heat and fluff with a fork before tossing with remaining 3 Tbsps of butter before garnishing with parsley as desired.

For an extra hearty dish, add cooked shredded rotisserie chicken at the end or prepare some chick peas – this will transform it into more of a meal in itself! Also increase the amount of butter used for an even richer taste!

Make this delicious recipe using any kind of rice, but long grain white varieties such as basmati or jasmine work particularly well in this dish. Their fragrant long grains offer subtle nutty notes that complement garlic beautifully in this recipe. Brown rice will take longer to cook so the ratio between liquid and dry rice should increase accordingly.

Garlic butter rice is typically served alongside proteins such as meat, poultry or fish and is also an excellent accompaniment for soups and stews. While chicken may be popular among many diners, you could also make this delicious side dish using turkey, pork or beef; and finish it off by topping it off with an over-easy egg for extra yumminess!

Pour water, salt and bring to a boil, reducing to simmer, covering, for 15 minutes before turning off heat and leaving standing for five more. Serve while warm!

Perfect as the foundation for recipes such as chicken curry or Mongolian beef bowls; serve with grilled steak and chicken for an irresistibly flavorful combination; even serve it for vegetarian-focused dishes such as vegan chickpea curry or lasagna for an exquisite, protein-packed vegetarian dinner option!

Creole Rice

Louisiana cuisine has long been synonymous with Creole rice, an indulgent side or main course prepared with onions, celery and bell pepper, smoked meats and aromatic spices. Simple to prepare and serves up delicious results every time – you’ll find prepackaged mixes such as Zatarain’s or Tony Chachere’s in grocery stores; but making your own batch from scratch offers a much richer experience that brings out its original essence!

Creole cuisine requires long-grain rice that can stand up to the robust and meaty flavors found within its cuisine, such as Jasmine or Basmati varieties, so its essential to use one that won’t become soggy during cooking as short grains may easily disintegrate during production.

Vegetables used in this dish depend on family recipes and preferences; however, certain key components include onion, bell pepper, celery (known as “the holy trinity”), diced tomato, garlic, sofrito sauce, Creole seasoning (both ground and powdered) and bay leaves. Furthermore, ground pork sausage and andouille smoked sausage provide extra meatiness as well as additional smokiness to this delicious meal; whilst fowl gizzards may sometimes be included but aren’t essential – even when trying to source or locate this meal!

Both Cajun and Creole seasonings can typically be found in grocery store spice racks; the key difference between them is that Cajun mixes usually feature more pepper-heavy elements such as bell peppers, cayenne peppers, and other spicy spice blends of various heat levels than Creole seasonings do. This recipe uses both types of spice in order to achieve the ideal balance of smoky, spicy and savory flavors.

Replace the meats with chopped eggplant (a favorite in Louisiana) before combining with other ingredients and simmering in rice mixture for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender and rice cooked through. Serve warm; leftovers make delicious leftovers that can easily be heated in oven or on stove top!

Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is a versatile side dish enjoyed throughout Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. While its exact recipe varies by region, this version uses coconut milk, water and rice with additional spices like thyme and crayfish. Coconut rice can serve both as main dish or side dish to any protein protein such as chicken or other proteins; adding lime juice can add extra zest. Garnish it off by using toasted coconut shreds and cilantro leaves for extra flair!

This easy and delicious coconut rice recipe makes the perfect meal, whether that means curries, stir-fries, fish or even just lunch on its own! Enjoy its sweet and creamy flavor which pairs well with grilled chicken or shrimp and can even be prepared ahead of time to save space in the refrigerator!

Ingredients for this dish are readily available in any kitchen. A can of full-fat coconut milk will give the rice its rich, creamy texture; low-fat coconut milk won’t have quite the same impact. In addition, water and a pinch of sugar will be necessary – sugar helps balance out its flavors!

To make coconut rice, first rinse the grains under several changes of cold water until all trace of debris has been eliminated. Next, combine all of the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil before reducing heat to low and simmering for 20 minutes until complete – after which time remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes before refrigerating!

Rice can be served warm or cold and stored in the fridge for up to five days – simply store in an airtight container or plastic ziplock bag – simply reheat before eating! Additionally, frozen storage options also keep it fresh for extended periods.
