Add Zip to your Rice | Easy Rice Side Dishes

Tired of the same old rice? Tonight, why don’t you try something new – and easy! Instead of using water to cook your rice in, replace it with chicken broth. Any store bought one will do. This simple change adds a nice depth to the flavor that will keep them coming back for more. Top with some chicken and feta cheese for a healthy, flavorful meal.

For some more easy rice recipes, use a whole can of cut tomatoes with the juice, adding water to make your liquid two times the amount of rice. Try some spices as well – oregano, garlic or basil. Or squeeze some lemon juice in your chicken broth and sprinkle the finished rice with fresh mint.

Our favorite rice side dish? Melt about two tablespoons of butter in your pot. Add half a pack of Lipton Onion Soup Mix to the butter. You can use the whole package and more butter if cooking for a large family. Pour in your water. Again, two parts liquid to one part rice. Add rice and let it cook. This is a fabulous side that can be taken to pot lucks or parties– and trust us – everyone will ask for the recipe!
