cheese + rice = yummies

Rice with cheese and leeks:

cheesy rice

I bought Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. I love it! It's full of simple recipes with all kinds of variations and good ideas. I think I've changed every recipe I've made so far, but that's the point of the book.

This recipe is rice with cheese, and I added the leeks and red pepper flakes. So so yummy! This is fontina and asiago - creamy and sharp. The leeks blended into the background and the red pepper flakes contrasted against everything. I used sushi rice because I was starving, but I think this would be even tastier with brown rice.

I give it an 8.8.
