Yesterday I made a dessert (an easy rice dish) for myself that included ice cream and that I would still consider to be healthy(ish). And I made it in about 90 seconds.
Want to see what I did?
I took the Multi-Grain Medley of Minute Ready to Serve Rice and heated it up for 60 seconds. That’s really all it takes for it to be done. Amazing!
Then I added some diced up peaches and a bit of ice cream. Now, I normally would suggest vanilla ice cream, but I only had the flavor my 3 year old had picked out at the store the last time, which had sprinkles all in it. I REALLY wanted this dessert, so I went with it. And you know what? It was pretty good!
The Multi-Grain Medley was a great choice for dessert, and it will be a great choice for savory dishes as well, because it contains brown rice, barley, quinoa, oats, wheat and rye. What a great blend!.
I also love this product because my 10 month old seems to be eating like a teenage boy lately. Finger foods are what she likes the best, so rice is a really fun treat. But she NEVER wants to wait 30 minutes for rice to cook! Now she doesn’t have to.
Minute Ready to Serve Rice is available in many other varieties, including the following:
- brown rice
- brown & wild rice
- jasmine rice
- white rice
- Italian rice mix
- chicken rice mix
- yellow rice mix
- Spanish rice mix
- pilaf rice mix
As a really busy mom, I have to say that I can see this product being extremely helpful to have on hand in my kitchen. I often get too focused on the main dish of a meal and realize just a few minutes before it is time to eat that I don’t have any side dishes prepared. Since I’m home all day, I also have full access to all the candy in the pantry, and would be less tempted to raid it if I had healthier options for snack time. In the dessert I made above, even though it included ice cream, eating this dish saved me from eating a bowl of ice cream at least 3 times the size of the amount of ice cream I ate here. So in effect, I replaced ice cream with multi-grains…and I loved it. That’s a win in my book!
