If you’re feeling peckish for something carby and cheesy, you can count on this Chicken and Wild Rice Strudels to help satiate your cravings! The science behind this delicious recipe is not at all complicated. The rice and other ingredients are encased within the flaky crust of the phyllo dough, which allows for the filling’s flavours to harmonise. This way of cooking also allows for moisture to be retained, making it crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Try making one today!
2. Rice Stuffed Tomatoes
A delicious, nutritious and fuss-free recipe to whip up during the weekends is the Rice-Stuffed Tomatoes. All you have to do is scoop out the pulp and seeds from the tomatoes before stuffing them with your rice filling. It can be a simple Garlic Butter Rice or a fancier Beanie Rice. Just remember to incorporate the scooped-up tomato pulps in your rice mix to add additional flavour to the dish! With its vibrant colour, this dish will appeal to the kids too!
3. Pork Wrapped Rice Ball
Bacon in everything is what pure joy tastes like, but don’t take it from us! Make your own call after creating this Pork Wrapped Rice Ball recipe. The steps are ridiculously easy, but tactical at the same time. The bacon strips are wrapped at the most outer layer of the dish, allowing the bacon fat to be infused into the rice, egg and the sauce to enhance the flavour and aroma further. Get the recipe here!
4. Bacon Shimeji Mushroom Rice
Don’t underestimate the simplicity of this recipe. The charm lies in its clever inclusion of mushrooms. Mushrooms are known to provide a fragrant umami aroma and are very absorbent of the flavours from the other ingredients. This means that with each bite of this dish, you’ll get a flavour bomb of the rich bacon fat and umami. Keep it cooking for at least 30 minutes in the Thermos® Shuttle Chef® for a delicious, infused staple to serve your family!

For this recipe, the wow factor is in the beef fillings within the cabbage wrap. Try to avoid overcooking the protein and utilise aromatics like herbs and spices to elevate the flavours. We would also recommend simmering the dish with Thermos® Shuttle Chef® to soften the recipe to perfection.
6. Broccoli and Ham Risotto
Comfy food is every busy individual’s best friend - like this Broccoli and Ham Risotto recipe!

Just be sure to keep an eye on the consistency of the risotto as it should be soft and creamy, but not too watery or stiff. Top it up with some black pepper for some heat and dinner is served!
