As a foodie I know that I’m always trying new things and working to make quality food for myself and any guests I may have.  Recently I had a chance to try out Minute® Rice and I jumped at the chance because I was curious to see just how flexible and convenient it could be.  I let my friend know I was going to the event and her face was less than pleased… her reaction let me know that I really needed to try it out and share with you all how tasty, easy to use and versatile Minute® Rice can be for any meal.

For this event we had a lovely chef prepare a variety of meals made from Minute® Rice, you can see the menu below.  What surprised me is that he was able to make something for every meal of the day; Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert.

Below you can see that Minute® Rice comes in many styles from Basmati or Jasmine to Brown rice there’s something that is sure to please the whole family.

Check out a small taste of what you can make with Minute® Rice in your kitchen. For a Breakfast or Brunch ready meal we have the Skillet Rice with Eggs, Ham, Mushroom, Cheese and Herbs… it was truly delicious and I could see myself eating it any time of day.


For a great Lunch or Dinner you could try this Greek Sala on a Crunchy Rice Cake. I honestly never thought to make a rice cake in this manner but it definitely has my creative juices flowing. We also did a bit of a Minute® Rice Iron Chef, my team was Team Chicken, while we loses… our food was still awesome! LOL


And last but not least for Dessert we enjoyed this yummy Apple Rice Tart. Who says you can’t make more than rice pudding with rice?



Don’t worry, I’m not just going to tease you with all these fabulous foods.  I just wanted to get you in a “Think outside the box” mindset before I give you this GEM.  Whether you’re getting started on holiday meal planning or looking for a quick main meal or side dish for your next family get-together Minute® Rice would be a great addition!
