Of course, both white rice and whole grain rice each have their pros and cons depending on what dish they're used in. In this dish in particular, the whole grain rice really makes this dish work because of its nutty and chewy texture.

But...my favorite way to eat rice of all time? SUSHI. (Making sushi is definitely on my to-do list in the future!)

What's your favorite way to eat rice?
