Thank you so much Minute® Ready to Serve Rice for sponsoring today’s post!
As I’ve mentioned here before, I’ve never been a fan of cooking. That’s probably one of the reasons I married a Chef. Definitely one of the reasons. Since July 1st I have been committing myself to a much more healthy and active lifestyle. This means I actually have to…cook food for myself. I know. It’s the worst. Which is why I love finding healthy and simple solutions like Minute® Ready to Serve Rice.
I like that Minute® Ready to Serve Rice provides easy portion control since it’s conveniently packaged in two individual single-serve cups. Plus, there are many varieties including: Whole Grain options of Brown Rice, Brown & Wild Rice and Multi-Grain Medley, Jasmine Rice, White Rice, Chicken Rice Mix, Yellow Rice Mix, and Fried Rice Mix. Learn more about the different varieties at http://www.minuterice.com/en-US/products/categories/29/ReadytoServeRice.aspx
Fall officially kicks off in September (best. season. ever.) and so does the celebration of a mainstay for so many families with National Rice Month, which celebrates the rice harvest and honors the contribution of the U.S. rice industry to America’s economy. Rice is an easy family staple that makes meal planning and prep easy for everyone, especially with products on hand like Minute® Ready to Service Rice since it’s ready in just 60 seconds. Plus, rice is versatile. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts can be made using this go-to ingredient.
Fried rice is a favorite of my kiddos when we go out to Chinese. I wanted to create a super easy version for them at home that is also much healthier. Henceforth:
No, seriously it’s the easiest ever.
Step 1: Add 1 package of frozen mixed organic veggies & 1/4 cup of water in pan. Cook 4 minutes, stir.
Step 2: Microwave 1 Minute® Ready to Serve Rice cup of your choice.
Step 3: Add rice to your pan, stirring together all the ingredients and allow to cook for 2 more minutes.
I added salt and pepper to taste. If your kids are into scrambled eggs, definitely add those to make this dish more “authentic”. You can also add grilled chicken, pork or even tofu to make the dish more hearty.
