I think the BEST way to enjoy rice and veggies = SUSHI! They're just sooooo fun to make (and eat, of course), not to mention pleasing for the eyes ;)
There are endless options too! You can use white/brown/red/black rice, you can fill it with whatever you want (or whatever you have left in the fridge), use your creativity!
However, I've seen a lot of recipes online that doesn't 'season' the rice! Authentic, good sushi means the rice is seasoned = sushi rice. That's why when you go to a Japanese sushi restaurant, the sushi rice will have a slightly sweet-sour taste that makes it special! Otherwise it will be like you're eating plain rice + veggies + seaweed. Not bad, but not that good either! Below you'll find my 'healthy-fied' version of sushi rice!
