Rice is a very healthy and satisfying product that can be used to make not only pilaf and paella, but also delicious soups, salads, and milk porridges. Rice can also be deliciously cooked with meat and vegetables. The most important thing to remember is that rice and rice dishes can be eaten immediately after cooking, but not the next day, as it will be dangerous.
