Does anyone else find this combo more than a little repulsive? Mayo + White Rice

Co-worker was eating this at lunch.

Squirt bottle of Hellman's and a big bowl of what looked like converted white rice. Squirt, mix, repeat, then eat.

I don't know about you, but just the mere sight of that was probably worse than eating my own vomit.

I'm a big "live and let eat" kind of person, so I'm not hating on my co-worker, but I just needed to get that off my chest.

Carry on ...

  1. i probably would be in awe watching that also. But I can imagine mayo being used in a cold rice salad along with other seasonings/dressings

      I've made a cold rice salad with mayo seasoned with curry powder and some cumin. Add in some veg of choice and it's terrific. Chilled, of course.

      But it wasn't instant rice and unadulterated mayo...

    2. While not a Hellman's squeeze bottle - I'm happy eating plain sushi rice with spicy mayo.....

        Spicy sushi rolls, mayo and all, have made a convert out of me.

            Wrap that in some seaweed with a spritz of sesame oil and I think I have a summery kimbap.

              I just tried this combination for a quick lunch - warmed some leftover rice, briefly cooked frozen corn, opened a small can of tuna, topped with Kewpie and furikake. It's a good combo. I wonder about using one of the other Japanese canned fish like broiled sauries or eel.

                I told you that it is good. You didn't believe me.

        1. Gross. Although, add a can of tuna and your coworker might be on to something...

            I'm not understanding what you find gross about it.
            It's just another condiment or flavoring. Seems to me that it really isn't much different than putting on bread, in pasta salad, or in crabcakes.

            Or is it just that you have an version to mayo (as do many other folks)?

            1. re: The Professor

              I heart mayo, but not as the sole topping on rice.

            1. Just imagine the mayo hitting the hot rice and seperating into curds and grease.... *vomits*

              When it comes to mayo I try to maintain a cautiously libertarian position; as long as they don’t hurt anyone else people should be able to mayo whatever they please. But god damn it some people really abuse the privilege.
