I love Minute Rice! When I was growing up we always ate alongside pot roast with carrots and potatoes, and it was always served with butter and sugar on top! Yum!
Now Minute Rice is making it even faster and easier for you to make a great meal at home or on the go with their Minute® Ready to Serve Rice products. Each package includes two 4.4 oz cups that are ready to serve in 60 seconds, and they come in the following varieties:
- Whole Grain Brown Rice
- Brown and Wild Rice
- Multi-Grain MedleyWhite Rice
- Jasmine Rice
- Chicken Rice Mix
- Italian Rice Mix
- Spanish Rice Mix
- Yellow Rice Mix
- Pilaf Rice Mix
Each of these would taste great alone, but when you consider the stir-in ideas from the Minute Rice site, your meal time possibilities are endless! You can make delicious entrees like Chicken Rice Carbonara to Rice Rice and even kid friendly recipes like Pizza Rice and Chocolate Rice Pudding!
I received a coupon for a free package of Minute Ready to Serve Rice and was instructed to make my own little rice creation. For my recipe project, I took an idea from the folks at Minute Rice and sort of put my own spin on it. The result is a cross between a dessert and a sweet breakfast dish. It is called Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Rice. Check it out!
Recipe for Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Rice:
1 4.4 oz Rice cup
3 tablespoons Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons Syrup or Honey
1 tablespoon Chocolate Chips (milk, semisweet, or white)
Directions: Lift top off rice and microwave for one minute, as instructed on the package. Pour rice in to a bowl. Add peanut butter and mix well. Stir in syrup or honey. Top with chocolate chips or stir them in.
Hints/Tips: The recipe idea that I followed from the folks at Minute Rice called for Honey as an optional add-in. But we ate a lot of peanut butter and syrup sandwiches when I was growing up, so I decided to try this instead. But this would also be great with just the peanut butter & chocolate chips OR the peanut butter and honey or syrup without the chocolate chips.
