3. Make crispy-bottomed rice.

This classic Persian technique (also called Tahdig) uses cold rice, a hot pan, and a dish towel to make rice with a perfectly crisp bottom. See the full video here.

5. Turn it into a creamy porridge.

Cooking rice in a large amount of liquid results in a silky porridge (also called congee) that is completely customizable. Top it with whatever ingredients you like and eat it anytime. Get the recipe here.

6. Turn overcooked rice into crackers.

Accidentally overcook your rice? Instead of throwing it away, turn it into crispy DIY rice crackers! Just roll your rice into a thin sheet, pop it in the oven to dry, and fry it into crispy, light-as-air chips. See the full video here.

8. Make both sweet and savory rice pancakes.

Rice is the perfect base for making all kinds of pancakes, from savory varieties with cilantro and coconut milk, to sweet ones with maple and cinnamon. Get the savory recipe here and the sweet one here.

10. Cook your rice in beer.

Make sure to use a light beer in this recipe (like an IPA) so your rice is flavorful without being overwhelming (don't go using a stout here). Get the recipe here.
