Thermos PH 7 Flavourful Rice Recipes to Elevate Your Meal Hero


Jazz up plain white rice with a few modest ingredients to transform your homemade dinner into a flavorful dining experience. We’re not talking about making rice-based dishes, like fried rice or baked casseroles, but simply throwing in aromatics and seasonings into the same pot and cooking your rice like you normally would.

While most of these recipes are prepared on the stove, you can save yourself from worrying about burnt rice or having it accidentally bubble over by using your Thermos® Shuttle Chef®.

  1. Coconut Rice

    Soaking up the savory flavors of chicken broth, the earthy tones of ginger, and the pungent kick of garlic, this plain-looking dish packs an unexpected jolt of flavors. Feel free to turn up the aroma by adding a few stalks of lemongrass when cooking the rice. Serve this with lechon manok or other Asian-style roast chicken for a Hainanese chicken rice-inspired meal.

    This Mediterranean-inspired lemon rice promises to perk up your meal with its bright flavors. While dishes from the region, like Greek kebabs, are obvious pairings to serve with this rice, seafoods are also excellent options as they will benefit greatly from the refreshing citrus notes. Try dishing up the rice with baked salmon or grilled prawns.
