Hi Everyone! Jake here! I am the main cook in our house so I’m always looking for easy and healthy dishes to create for our meals. We often walk the grocery store isles looking for good side dishes that are filling and have nutritional value. When I heard about Minute® Ready to Serve rice, I knew we needed to go find it asap and try it out!
After trying the rice out a few times in the fun diffrent flavors, there were a few things we really liked about the product.
1) It is Convenient and quick – Minute® Ready to Serve Rice: It’s precooked and comes in a cup so all you have to do is pull back the lid, heat the cup in the microwave for 60 seconds and you’re done! We are all about the no clean up too, and just throwing the cup away in the trash after making the rice was perfect!
2) Portable and offers portion control. We love having something portioned out and knowing exactly how many calories we’re eating! It’s also great to pack in a to-go lunch or to heat up, add some grilled chicken on top and take it with me as I run out the door! I try to eat grains at lunch time and in the morning so I can have fuel to energize my body throughout the day.
3) Versatile – There are so many fun options you can cook up with the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. Between all the flavors you can come up with some super fun concoctions! I am going to show in today’s blog post how we added the rice as a side dish with some protein and veggies. We have also found other ways we like to enjoy the rice cups by adding seasoning on top, a sauce, adding a veggie with cheese on top, etc. for a great quick meal! With having busy, on-the-go schedules, it’s important to have a go-to food around that you can rely on!
Today I am going to share with you my all time favorite way to make Lemon Salmon and our favorite sides to go with it! It’s a very easy recipe, one of our most frequent dinners and one we would call Minute® Ready!
