Sneaking in whole grains is not very easy when it comes to picky little eaters, and I have them! So the Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Brown Rice helps me out. I can serve this up as a side dish and with chicken breast, some veggies and there I have a great, healthy meal for me and my family.
Uncle Ben’s has developed a few types of whole grain brown rice, Natural Whole Grain Brown, with the traditional cook time (40 minutes), plus Fast & Natural Instant Brown Rice and Boil-In-Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice (both ready in 10 minutes) so you can decide which type of brown rice fits the type of meal you are preparing, but still know that you’re getting whole grains on the table. And your kids will eat it!!! 🙂
Me and my family had the opportunity to try out this rice and put it to the test. I made the Uncle Ben’s Boil-In-Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice for my family. I added a turkey gravy mix and that was it! It was a delicious side dish and my family really enjoyed. The rice was so easy to make, love the boil-in-bag idea. Great for busy moms such as myself, and the whole family enjoyed this rice. We paired it with a rotisserre chicken I bought from the store, added a can of string beans and dinner is served 🙂
The rice was very fluffy and perfect. Did not really taste any different then the white rice that we normally eat. Great way to sneak in whole grains at dinner. I thought it did not taste really any different from white rice maybe because I put the turkey gravy in with the rice. That is my experience with this rice so far. If I had just had it regular, I sure I would have noticed a different taste to it.
Uncle Ben’s created a few recipes that will be a hit this summer such as: Chicken & Brown Rice Sloppy Joes; Tex Mex Rice with Shrimp, Corn and Lime; Chicken, Apple and Walnut Brown Rice Salad; and Mediterranean Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. Don’t they sound delicious?! Check more out here!
