Stuck on mid-week dinner solutions? We have the perfect rice recipes for dinner to resolve your dilemma.

Instead of thinking of rice as a simple side dish, try putting it on the menu as the main event, as they do in many cultures, and enjoy it for its simplicity, as a wholesome, filling and tasty meal.

When cooked as a meal in its own right rice readily absorbs other flavours from Thai to Italian, and with over 1000 varieties to choose from there's a lot of exploration to do.

We have a selection of rice recipes for dinner depending on your mood and your groceries, so whether you go for chicken rice or seafood, Italian or Mexican or a simple vegetarian fried rice option, these dishes prove rice is more than a support act but a meal in its own right.
