Dingo Supreme says:

Way too much chili for my taste. I'd prefer throwing in some bell peppers, onion and carrots.

Karl Dagenais says:

That second recipe sounds and looks perfect. I'll try that for sure!

Doctora Lola says:

I don't want my food to be boring. I try to cook creatively but I've realised that with certain ingredients, I always end up serving the same dish. This happens to me with meat, fish, salad and beans. How can I get easy alternatives to cook the same main ingredient?

Huddo295 says:

Great recipe, I substitute the brown rice sometimes for quinoa as its a protein or I add thin stirips of grilled meet to the rice

Beautiful Christina and her lovely dishes! =) Great!

Jeramy Martyn Garner says:

I love the brown rice salad idea.

I always toast my brown rice in a bit of oil before I cook it, I think it helps make it a bit nuttier.

Jonathan Ng says:

"Great for a hangover!" Wow Food Tube… are you guys seeing a lot of brown-rice-eating-alcoholics in your demographic? ๐Ÿ™‚

Max Cool says:

Will try these on my next cooking day!
Thanks Christina x

Michelle X says:

cjmannix says:

did anyone else grimace when she bit the spoon *shudders*

David Pehrson says:

You are probebly the only one I've seen not saying "Ah, perfect!" the first time you taste what you've mended. I like that (and the recipe)!

Sushi Grrl says:

I recently bought some forbidden rice but am not sure what to do with it. Can you tell me the rice/water ratio and somethings that might be good to put in it? I'd like to serve it with some tilapia!

tjoebacca says:

YES! Add some tomato pesto and it'll taste even better! I always have it like this when I'm too lazy to cook.
