Rice is a beloved side dish and a staple in many cultures. While we can enjoy a curry or hibachi over fried rice with delight, not everything would work well over rice. One Reddit user asked: “What tasty food would be disgusting if eaten over rice?” which sparked a debate about the many foods that wouldn’t work so well.
Here are the top responses.
One user commented: "Don't need to go to the store for this one!
Leftover spaghetti from 2 nights ago.
Spaghetti over rice = 9/10, tastes good but is sort of a weird blend together." Another foodie chimed in: "Yeah, I can imagine the taste is pretty darn good, but the short shape of rice and the long thinness of spaghetti seems really awkward to eat. I've have to like, chop up the spaghetti into 1 centimeter sticks or something."
Cereal probably wouldn’t taste the best. However, one user felt it could be a unique and interesting flavor profile.
They shared: “Fruity Pebbles + milk: 9/10
Fruity Pebbles + milk over rice: 8/10
It's like fruity rice milk!”
While many people felt that it just wouldn’t taste right no matter how it was prepared, some felt that the combination could be a winning one.
One foodie shared: “This actually might work because, despite the apparent lack of sweet taste in rice, it is actually high in sugar and you can make a sweetener from it.”
While most people aren’t going to pour a whole beer can on top of their rice, most felt that rice dishes that incorporated beer just weren’t good even when it was a prepared dish.
One foodie shared: “Beer. Even when that beer is Coconut Curry Hefeweizen and it seems like it would taste good over rice. It definitely does not.
...not that I would know or anything.”
The comments agree that regular ice cream over rice just won’t taste good. However one foodie shared: “mochi's just the pounded rice paste, actually. Mochi ice cream is just one of the things it's used for, some other things including daifuku(mochi filled with generally a sweet bean paste) and soups.”
Another foodie shared another recipe idea: “Mango sticky rice with vanilla ice cream is a tasty variation on the traditional thai mango sticky rice. Sticky rice is cheating though.”
While many agreed that standard pumpkin pie over rice wouldn’t be appetizing, many felt that there were variations over rice that would work. One foodie commented on a recipe for a pumpkin pie rice pudding: “Nope, that would be delicious. Use short grain steamed rice and mash it all together.”
While it was clear that most people didn’t care for the idea of orange juice fried rice, a few commented on its many possibilities! One foodie shared: “Orange juice, ginger, red pepper and honey. Voila! General Tso's.” Another suggested: “Actually I've put oranges in rice before, tasted quite good.”
