Minute Rice steamers are so easy to make and they taste great. Minute® Steamers is available in seven different varieties, including: Whole Grain Brown Rice, White Rice and flavorful mixes such as Whole Grain Brown & Wild with Vegetables, Broccoli and Cheese Rice, Spanish Rice, Fried Rice and Macaroni and Cheese. You can easily use them in recipes like the one above or serve them on the side. My kids love rice, so it is pretty awesome to have the convenience of popping a bag into the oven. It is great for the days when I am super busy and just do not have time to stop and cook a full meal. I can still offer my family a home cooked meal instead of fast food, but just as fast.
You should include grains like Minute Rice in your diet daily. Did you know that two-thirds of the world’s population relies on rice as a staple food? The American Dietetic Association states, “Rice is a good choice for a healthy diet. It is a good source of complex carbohydrates and can help you achieve a reduced fat diet.” This is good news for us who made that NEw Year’s Resolution to lose weight!
Minute Rice sent me a few pot holders that have magnets on them as well as a timer that sticks to the refrigerator. One of my readers will get 2 potholders, a timer and Minute Rice coupons totaling a $50 value. Tell me which flavor of Minute Rice are you most excited to try?
