We go through a lot of rice in our house. Rice is one of the legal foods that CJ can have, as he has Celiac Disease. One of the things that can be a pain about cooking rice is that it can take a while to cook and it can stick or burn. I’ve had my rice come out badly on more than a few occasions because I hate to stand in the kitchen and watch and stir a pot of anything. I much prefer things that are easy to make and don’t require lots of work. Minute Rice is one of those foods.
The Minute Rice website offers product information, recipes and coupons. Currently there are coupons you can use for both of the products in this review – $1 Off Any 2 Minute® Rice products and $1 Off Any 2 MINUTE® Ready to Serve Products.
From the website – Naturally wholesome, with a rich nutty taste, Minute Brown Rice is a precooked natural parboiled whole grain brown rice. In just 10 minutes, Minute Brown Rice can be a part of a healthier diet and lifestyle. This long grain precooked brown rice offers the same nutritional values as regular cooking brown rice, but cooks in just 1/4 of the time.
I received a box of the Minute Brown Rice. I tried cooking it both on the stovetop and in the microwave. There seemed to be no discernable difference in taste but the microwave batch actually seemed a little bit more tender. I paired it once with one of the Tyson Heat ‘N Eat entrees, using that gravy over the rice and that was delicious.
From the website – Delicious and quick Minute Ready to Serve Rice is fully cooked and there is nothing to add. Simply heat the cup in the microwave for 60-seconds and serve. Little clean-up is required as you can eat right out of the cup. Ideal for lunch or snack, Minute Ready to Serve Rice offers portability and portion control for busy lifestyles. Minute Ready to Serve Rice products are the ONLY ready to serve rice products packaged in individual serving cups. Each package contains two single serving cups.
I received a package of Minute Ready To Serve. These are perfect for anyone on the go or if you need to make a second side for some reason. In my house sometimes we want something CJ can’t eat and I have to make another side just for him so these are perfect at those times. To make it you just put one of the containers into the microwave for one minute and it’s ready. I just out a little butter on it for CJ.
TEN winners will each receive one coupon for one package of Minute Rice Ready To Serve and one coupon for any 14 ounce box of Minute Rice.
