When you hear “rice,” you already know what comes to mind: tiny white grains on a plate. But rice doesn’t have to be all that dull. A little exploration will show you that even rice can get some boosts. Not only can you make plain white rice, but you can also make grains and other types of rice with your Ninja Foodi.
