Mixed rice ideas

So I sent my hubby grocery shopping with a list.  He came back with two different organic mixes of rices instead of plain organic brown.  I am wondering what spices or seasonings to use to bring out their flavors.  I want to steer clear of beans since I often make different types of bean & rice recipes.  I am looking for something that is simple and will just intensify the grains.  I looked under the tags and did not see anything like what I'm looking for.  Some of these grains I have never worked with.

Both mixes have basically different varieties of these:
sweet brown rice, brown rice, whole grain Wehani rice and whole grain Black Japonica rice.

There is a recipe on the back of one of the bags that I may try (minus the nuts), but I would like some help in finding different ways to fix them, with different seasonings.


Brazilian Countrywild
1 cup countrywild rice
1 Tbs butter (obviously changing that)
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp finely grated orange peel
1/4 cup black olives sliced
1/4 cup brazil nuts choped

prepare rice
in separate bowl, mix together the butter, chili powder, garlic powder, brown sugar, salt and orange rind
pour this mixture into the hot rice and mix lightly
fold in the olives & nuts.
