Simple Rice Recipes for Dinner

Rice is one of the most widely consumed staple foods in the world, second only to bread. There are many different types of rice, from short-grain to long-grain and white to black. Because rice is so versatile in its flavors and filling, it easily rounds out just about any dinner.

Butternut and Brown Rice Soup
I’m a sucker for autumn soups. I fall for them every time! 😉

Seriously, I love, love, love the flavors of fall! Apples worm their way into just about any dish from pizza to dessert. Apple Pizza, Apple Ice Cream, Apple Fritters, Apple Sauerkraut Salad just to name a few.

Pumpkin winds up in  bread, crackers, milkshakes and more.

I have a special place in my heart for winter squash.

Roasting squash brings out its sweetness. Couple that smooth squash puree with nutty, brown rice and you get base for a delicious soup.
I kicked this soup up a notch with fresh thyme, smoked paprika and rich cream. Well, 2 percent milk but that can be our secret!
