Rice is hands down the main staple grain in Middle Eastern cuisine. Usually, every single meal will have some sort of rice dish served with it. If you're looking for the most classic rice served with all stews, check out this Arabic Rice with Vermicelli. You can also serve up this easy one pot Hashweh Rice, Carrot Rice, or Shawarma Rice.
For rice-based recipes that will also act as your main dish, I suggest this delicious lemony Malfouf, this festive Quzi Rice, or tangy Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers.
