The best Recipes with rice

On this page you will find a collection of our best rice recipes.

All rice dishes are vegetarian or vegan and therefore purely plant-based and do not contain meat. In this way you not only make a contribution to nature, but can also offer you and your family a healthy and good basis for the future.

Rice is a staple food, especially in Asia, and one of the most important types of grain. It is divided into three categories: short grain rice, medium grain rice and long grain rice.

The healthiest option is Brown ricewhich comes on the market with the inner shell layers and the seedling. These are particularly rich in nutrients and contain the majority of B vitamins, vitamin E and minerals. These healthy layers are sanded off and not included in white rice. Therefore, you should process brown rice whenever possible.


To the Long grain rice include many types of Asian rice such as basmati rice, patna rice and jasmine rice. But the American form of parboiled rice is also becoming more common. With this, nutrients and vitamins are pressed into the interior of the rice grain, making the rice healthier than white rice. However, parboiled rice is not suitable for sushi or risotto because of its special properties, as it is cooked faster and more grainy.

Sushi rice is mostly Medium grain rice and has good sticky rice properties, which are very important for sushi.

Short grain rice can be recognized by the fact that it has a less elongated shape. For example, it is called Risotto rice used because it contains a lot of starch unwashed and is therefore perfect for the preparation of risotto. For rice pudding and other dessert rice specialties, short-grain sticky rice is also often used. It contains a lot of starch, which is not water-soluble and therefore promotes the well-known sticking of the rice grains.

Colorful rice, for example from Thailand, Italy or France is mostly brown rice. It takes longer to cook, but has a stronger taste. Wild rice comes from a different genus of grass, tastes a bit nutty and is cooked similar to the other rice varieties. It's usually not that popular with children.

So if you want to whip up a healthy and quick rice dish for the whole family, try using brown rice. It combines the healthy parts with quick preparation and good taste.
