Back 2 School Blog Bash Shots 002

Minute Rice entered American homes during the same decade as the first color television set and the Hula Hoop and ever since has been a pantry staple helping consumers make healthy meals quickly. Minute Rice knows sitting down for a family meal is just as nutritious for the soul as it is for the body – making the brand’s constant goal to help busy cooks spend less time in the kitchen and more time around the table with loved ones.

For the past 60 years, Minute Rice has been there to help you prepare meals that are healthy, budget-friendly, fast and delicious. Below are few tips to save time and take the hassle out of cooking:

Breakfast Tips

Ø Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar over hot cooked rice. You can also add dried fruit, milk and nuts to make breakfast taste even better.

Ø Fold cooked white or brown rice into your favorite fruit yogurt. Add granola and fresh fruit. Top with honey.

Ø Enhance the nuttiness of brown rice by adding cashews, peanuts or sunflower seeds. Stir in dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries for a nutritional snack.

Quick Meals

Ø For a delicious farmer’s scramble, add scrambled eggs, cooked sausage, cheese, and green onions to hot cooked rice. Salsa makes a great topping.

Ø To cooked and cooled brown rice, add chopped apples, celery, raisins, pecans and vanilla yogurt for a great Waldorf salad.

Ø For an easy pilaf, add sautéed onions, mushrooms, and green peppers to rice cooked with chicken broth. Top with toasted pine nuts.

Sweet Treats

Ø Make a quick raspberry rice pudding by mixing cooled rice, fresh raspberries, honey and vanilla yogurt. Top with lemon zest.

Ø For an easy apple cobbler, add sliced apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, chopped nuts, and vanilla yogurt to hot cooked white or brown rice.
