A few weeks back I received a sample of Rice Select Jasmati rice. We eat a lot of rice in our house, so I knew that I would have no problem incorporating rice into many of our meals. Additionally, Jon’s newest fascination is making his version of Chipotle’s cilantro rice at home. A little about Rice Select:
RiceSelect™ supports sustainable agriculture by developing high yielding rice varieties that require less pesticides, fungicides and water resources as well as organic foods by developing new organic products, securing markets and expanding consumer demand. RiceSelect’s production facilities operate pollution free and use only minimal processes to mill and package nutritious, high quality, all natural food products. RiceSelect’s PET jars are re-usable and recyclable and BPA free.
Jasmati is a US-grown jasmine rice. The beauty of this Jasmati rice is that it only takes 20 minutes to cook! It is a nice option in place of brown rice if you are in a hurry. It doesn’t have the fiber that brown rice does, but each serving does have 150 calories & 3 grams of protein. Toss in some edamame or black beans to boost up the fiber content.
When I cooked this rice for the first time, I subbed light coconut milk (Trader Joe’s) for the water for some extra flavor. The rice turned out beautifully and everyone enjoyed it. I don’t suspect that my 36 oz container will last long with Jon in the house.
