Because sometimes you just want some rice!!!When you are watching your weight, carb loaded sides like rice and pasta are usually a no-no, or at least you need to seriously eat them in moderation. Personally, it's easier for me to practice portion control when eating pasta than when eating rice. Maybe because its so delicious or I was just used to eating it almost everyday growing up in a Puerto Rican household. And it was NEVER just a cup of rice. More often than not, 75% of my plate was rice with a little meat and beans. Just how it was. So, I try to make rice only once in a while - more like a treat - than a staple. And today, I was craving me some spanish rice! And I know I can substitute with brown rice, quinoa, etc, which I definitely do more often than not. But when you crave some fluffy, comforting rice, you have to go with white rice!
As most of you know, I try to be creative in the kitchen based on the ingredients I have on hand. Let me present to you the newest creation:
