Do you eat rice?

  1. Oct 23, 2004 #1
    Rice is the major food of Asians.

    But whitepeople seldom eat rice.

    Do you eat rice?

    Not this whiteboy!

    I love cajun food and soul food. I eat red beans and rice, dirty rice (that's cajun style), brown rice, chicken and rice, etc... on a regular basis. I also like rice pudding. :tongue:

    I am an Asian American, and live in Asia. I eat rice everyday for dinner. but sometimes I would like to try some western food (Eg, bread for breakfast, and maybe other wester food for lunch at school) because rice does not taste that good if we eat it three times a day.

    I despise rice. It has no taste. It feels as if i am inhaling air and pretending to chew something.

    I'd have to agree about plain white rice, but not brown rice. Also, what you probably don't know is that plain white rice has this wonderful quality of absorbing the flavor of whatever you cook it in. Last Sunday my friends and I made a good cajun dinner, and one of them (my roommate) made this incredible spicy rice dish that could have been a main course in itself.

    I eat rice probably four times a week or more. I don't eat plain white rice by itself -- it's almost always soaked up some kind of sauce. Rice soaked in panang curry sauce is to die for. Oh, and I'm a white person.

    Saint, you really need to stop making so many sweeping generalizations. You really seem to be almost always wrong.

    Could it be considered immoral for whitemen to eat white rice?

    I have consumed great quantities of rice over the course of my life. I like it tacky, greasy, watery, even slightly crunchy from over-cooking. Did I hear Tom say 'red beans...', mmmmm, such is a spice of life!

    I like the kind with the peas in it at the Indian Food restaurant. I also like white rice piled high with Korean Bulgogi Beef and hot chili paste. :cool:

    I eat rice constantly. White rice, brown rice and basmati(sp) are my favorites. Basmati and White are both close together.

    Then sauces: Soy Sauce, Hot Sauce, Cream and Chicken Soup, Butter Chicken Sauce. Anyone of those are good, mixing the sauces is great too.

    I eat rice at least 5 times a week. (Arabic food!)

    I love rice!!!

    Don't they process it differently here in American than they do in Asia, though?

    As luck would have it, I am at this very moment microwaving something called 'Chicken enchilada suiza' which includes Mexican (spicy) rice.

    For some reason I just had a flashback to my childhood. In those days the drugstore sold a little plastic box containing a dozen "Mexican jumping beans." Mom would never buy that for me, because she said she didn't want bugs getting into the house. The bean hopped around because it had some sort of active insect living inside of it, eating its way out, kind of like how a chick pecks its way out of the egg, I guess.

    I'm with you Janitor, I like those frozen enchilada suizas. My favorite way to eat rice is with chile verde and refried beans at my local Mexican resturant. Their chili verde is special, and hot! both ways.

    Refried and totally free of insects--I hear you, man.

    I'm an Asian and I don't know any Asians who eat plain white rice all on its own. There is NO taste in that kind of rice. Most people I know cook dishes with lots of gravy to add to their rice. For most of the week, this is what I have, except on Sundays when we have wholemeal bread the whole day with baked beans, sausages, etc.

    I guess this probably explains the cheap living expenditure, Evo. :tongue2:

    Mmmm...rice is good. It goes really well with any dish that has a lot of sauce or juice. I don't like plain rice, but mix anything with it, and it's very yummy. Aside from white rice and brown rice, I really like risotto, though that takes more attention than regular rice. I have all sorts of rice in my cabinets at home...regular long grain, jasmine rice, nishiki rice (I think that's the name of it...the Japanese short grain rice for sushi), and brown rice. Mixing together brown rice and wild rice, which isn't actually rice but looks like it, and some walnuts and sauteed mushrooms and onions makes a tasty side dish.
