French Onion Rice is an easy rice dish you can make with Campbell’s Soup and is full of wonderful flavor. It gives the rice a whole new taste you are going to love.
Spring in February
Yesterday was beautiful! It was a nice 60 degrees here in Cleveland. I opened up all my windows and let the condo air out while I did spring cleaning. Who would have ever thought I would be saying that in the month of February!
The warmer weather does have me thinking. I am thinking about spring recipes I want to create. It also has me thinking about taking my camera and doing more than food photos with it.
I want to get out and explore more. I feel like I have a new life within me. Amazing how fresh air lifts you up and inspires you.
What has me thinking about doing more than food photos? I have been teaching myself new techniques on how to edit photos better. I recently discovered some new tutorials on photography.
I have been practicing using the techniques in those tutorials in my photos. Including the photos for this French Onion Rice. I love learning new things, especially if it can help me improve.
I got Lightroom down for photos. Now it is now opening myself up to learn PhotoShop editing for photography. I want to expand myself in taking the best food photos I can.
I also want to start practicing with still life and scenery photos. Since it is so nice here in Cleveland this weekend, I plan to take my camera down to the beach. I want to shoot photos there.
By doing that I can just practice still life photography. I think I may have a new hobby. I am excited about a new hobby, it is always good to learn new things.
French Onion Rice Recipe
I said it before on posts like this:
On a budget makes the best recipes. Sometimes I am between paychecks, and I need to figure out what I will eat before the next paycheck arrives. That is when you get creative.
In being creative, I have to use what I have in the cupboard. Sometimes, when I am craving something, getting creative also helps me come up with the best recipes as well.
Recipes On A Budget
Both were the case when comes to this recipe. Hate to admit this but pay check to pay check living, does help you figure out how to spice up a poor man’s meal. It because we have to make the recipe work with what we have I think.
Rice Recipe Craving
I was craving rice, but not the normal white, buttery rice. I didn’t want a Rice-a-Roni either. So I looked through the cupboard and spotted the Campbell’s French Onion Soup.
The idea struck me, why not boil rice in the soup. I also knew I needed a bit more of a French Onion flavor if I wanted to call this French Onion Rice. Grated parmesan was the answer.
Creative French Onion Rice
You need that cheese ingredient if you wanted to make a French Onion Rice. The end result was delicious, just what I was craving. Plus you can really get creative with this recipe.
How? Add some leftover grilled steak, chicken, even shrimp to it. How about maybe adding some roasted garlic?
The sky the limit if you want to use this French Onion Rice as a base recipe. I, however, liked it plain. If you get creative with this French Onion Rice, let me know!
