So, what is riis?

Riis, also known as rice, is a versatile and essential ingredient in many cuisines around the world. These small, starchy grains are harvested from the seed of the Oryza sativa plant and can be prepared in countless ways. Whether it's steamed or boiled, brown or white, long-grain or short-grain, riis provides a neutral base for a wide range of dishes. It's commonly used in stir-fries, sushi, pilafs, and risottos, but can also be transformed into cakes, puddings, and even fermented beverages. Riis is a gluten-free option that's high in complex carbohydrates and low in fat, making it a healthy and satisfying addition to any meal.
