The San Francisco treat?

by Anonymousreply 1June 23, 2022 9:25 AM

God help me, I love it. Rice [bold]and[/bold] tiny noodles?!

by Anonymousreply 2June 23, 2022 9:25 AM

Yep, I still sneak a box in my pantry. I think it's the herbs and spices mainly chicken flavor that makes it so tasty. The original, dont care for the other flavors.

The original Asian-Italian fusion.

by Anonymousreply 4June 23, 2022 9:30 AM

I admit that I like it too. In fact I can make a full meal of RaR. I use the Spanish Rice flavor and I mix in a can of stewed tomatoes, chopped onions, 1 can of green peas, and some fresh shrimp. When I want a purely vegetarian dish I'll skip the shrimp and include a can of red or black beans. Delish.

Every day except Wednesday, because that's Prince Spaghetti Day.

I love it, but I'm always hungry an hour later.

Wait, there’s noodles in this?

Roni, Rose.

HU? Dipshit, they have rice in Italy you know. It's not a new thing.

It's short for MACARONI, Rose.

Also, the rice part was from a pilaf recipe that was Armenian. So I guess you could say Armenian / Italian. Although the inverter was Italian.

It's probably so "tasty" because one serving equals 44% of your daily sodium requirement.

Love it. Might have some this weekend!

Thanks for reminding me of this, OP.

Yes Please! I love salt, that is not an insult. And no I don't have high blood pressure, in fact quite the opposite. Salt is what brings out the flavor, most chefs know this which is why food tastes so much better when you go out to eat. They use lots of salt. And it's not that bad for you as long as you don't have a health issue. The concerns of too much salt is highly over exaggerated.

I love it, but it's hell on my blood sugar. It's better if you add a little MSG. I've also occasionally added a very small amount of Better Than Bullion to intensify the chicken flavor.

by Anonymousreply 18June 23, 2022 11:10 AM

MSG is actually just a form of salt obtained from seaweed. So you could just add sea salt.

No, R19, it isn't the same.

It’s delicious. So is Stove Top, not that I’d ever admit to it in court.

I believe it's pronounced uhhhRice-a-Roni, OP.

In the Andy Warhol diaries, there’s a discussion about how this is Mick Jagger’s favorite dish.

That’s interesting ^

I bake my Rice-a-Roni in the oven with 3 thin-sliced pokechopz on top.

by Anonymousreply 25June 23, 2022 4:09 PM

I was so worried for you, OP.

I just read a thread in which everyone expressed scathing contempt for people who post about “the mundane” on Facebook and expected you to be mercilessly destroyed for Rice a Roni.

But apparently people like it, which makes it safe for me to say that I LOVE Zatarain’s Dirty Rice.

It gives me a headache 🤕

by Anonymousreply 27June 23, 2022 4:27 PM

In college I knew the son of some ambassador, and he said to mix a tablespoon or so of mayonnaise into Zatarain’s. I was skeptical, but it was pretty good as a change of pace.

by Anonymousreply 28June 23, 2022 4:32 PM

I didn't know they still made this. I remember having it years and years ago and it was quite tasty.

by Anonymousreply 29June 23, 2022 4:40 PM

Interesting possibility, R28. During the start of the pandemic I went to my local store and there was NO Zatarain’s, so now I have at least 10 boxes. I could dislike a mayo version and still have enough for another lockdown!

by Anonymousreply 30June 23, 2022 5:00 PM

Never tried it. Didn't realize that it had noodles (Roni) in it. Sounds like something to have on hand, maybe.

by Anonymousreply 31June 23, 2022 5:09 PM

It's more celli than roni.

by Anonymousreply 32June 23, 2022 5:55 PM

It's cheap and keeps forever in the pantry.

by Anonymousreply 33June 23, 2022 5:56 PM

First you brown the rice and vermicelli....

I love the chicken or herb & butter flavor.

by Anonymousreply 34June 23, 2022 5:58 PM

I’ve never tried it.

You see, I’m from Minnesota and don’t live in San Francisco.
