Anyone else think rice eaters are just delusional sugar addicts?

    By the way have you ever eaten Nasi Goreng? I can post a recipe if you like, but it will have to wait until later because I am supposed to be putting together a lesson plan right now...

    • To be honest, this thread is making me think of popcorn, not rice. Though I am liking the whole "rice, butter and cinnamon" idea.

      And it makes me glad I'm not out there dating right now, too. Holy crap, that some scary gene pool.

        Yes! My mother-in-law makes a mean Nasi Goreng. That ish is delish...

        It's my FIL's favorite, so she always makes a huge batch on his birthday and we all eat a ton.

        • Has anyone tried popped rice from the Korean supermarket? They have this awesome machine that pops out rice cakes fresh from rice. I want to get one, but I'd probably snack on that way too often...

          Or freshly ground rice flour. For mochi. Mmmmm...

            Nasi Goreng is the freaking nutter butters. I havn't had that in years. Now I want some. And it's all because of this thread....

              That sounds awesome, I would love to try that. Speaking of rice flour, I need to find some good rice flour recipes. I tried some store-bought white rice bread, and it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped.

              • OMG red bean mochi are one of my favourite treats.

                And rice with butter and cinnamon is lovely. I usually eat rice as a substrate for things like curry or stirfry, but I will sometimes do dessert-y rice things. Also, kheer. Cardamom makes me happy.

                  Why...

                  Well, for starters, eating a ton of vegetables and fruit was one major trigger for my IBS flares...which I was able to stop by cutting out most of the veggies and replacing them with...RICE. The horror.

                  There are MANY reasons why people might need to do something different that what you are doing.

                  • Seriously guys, getting 100% of your carbs from "non-starchy" (who cares?) veg is barely enough glucose to power your brain.

                    It shows.

                      I just started reading this thread, from back to front, and I'm already taking offense.

                      • Well this has certainly provided me with quite a bit of amusement today.
                        Seriously, though, if this has all been inflammatory (pun intended ) on purpose it's an incredibly successful troll...*slow clapping*...

                            You've got to be kidding. Not all us low carb people are idiots like the OP, you know.

                            Hey, this mochi you are talking about, is that the square thing you can get in a health food store? I bought that once, put it in the oven like the instructions said, and out came a puffy yet gooey thing. I tried to eat it but I swear I was really scared I was going to choke on it and die. I must have done it wrong. Seemed like a really good idea. The only thing called mochi I've eaten since then is that mochi ice cream from Trader Joe's. Haven't had that for more than a year. That was one of my favorites.

                              It's supposed to be puffy and gooey out of the oven. You can wait for it to cool before eating so that it's not so overwhelmingly gooey. It's basically a really dense, chewy rice-flavored cake. I usually make hawaiian butter mochi with the following ingredients:

                              1 stick butter
                              1.5 cups sugar (or substitute)
                              1 can coconut milk
                              2 tsp baking powder
                              1 tsp vanilla
                              4 eggs
                              8 oz mochiko rice flour

                              Mix all together (no lumps!) and bake at 350 degrees until top browns, about 40-50 minutes.

                              I've also made a pumpkin version if you want to check it out:

                                I think if you tried to make it at home, it would end up like a dense cake instead of bread. Unless you are cool with flatbread?
