New recipe today…a side dish! This recipe was posted by the nice folks at Colman’s Mustard on their Twitter account a week or so ago. You should follow them on Twitter if you don’t, they post lots of cool recipes and are very interactive if you say hi to them there. I’ve been a fan of Colman’s mustard for years, especially their dry mustard. You can add a pinch of it to pretty much anything savory – salad dressings, marinades, sauces, soups – for a nice hint of flavor.

When they posted this mustard rice recipe recently, I was intrigued…never would have come up with this idea myself. We paired it with some simple kielbasa and veggie grilled skewers and it was really good! The rice is a little spicy from the mustard powder. I would definitely make this again.
It’s a drier rice because you sort of stir-fry it into the onions and spices at the end, which I really liked. My mom commented that it kind of looked like fried rice, and she’s right – but it’s not oily at all. Very nice and light. It should be obvious from the recipe but do keep in mind that this only makes 2 cups of rice, which isn’t a ton depending how many people you are feeding…adjust accordingly. This recipe calls for one onion and while I love onion, we only used half of a large one here and it was plenty. I’d say one whole onion only if it’s a pretty small onion. Also, we used white rice so that the color would show up and it tasted great, but I think this would be really good with brown rice, barley, quinoa, or whatever grain you like.
