"Red rice" - not white rice flavoured with tomatoes but actual red rice - any recipes?

I am soaking some right now for dinner tonight. (Serving with green beans, and chicken thighs marinated in homemade apple butter and spicy smoky chipotles). Any ideas what I should do with the rice?

    1. Maybe treat it like other rice, as far as flavorings go. I just did a quick google search for it, found many suggestions.
      Because it is an aromatic rice, with a nutty flavor, I wouldn't do much with it, other than some olive oil or butter, maybe some onion or scallion. But, since you're serving it with something else quite flavorful, I would serve it plain.
