I understand your frustration but "La fille mange riz" is incorrect, "du" is mandatory. "some rice" would be "La fille mange un peu de riz"

I know! I put "La fille mange le riz" because I thought it would work some how. Although I do understand the reason behind "du" now that I have seen the error of my ways, I still cringe when I lose my heart. Lol!
