It was a little chilly last night and Brian was fixing a rib recipe. So, we tried Minute multi-grain medley to accompany it. I had received some samples and had not given them a try. Why, because I had not taken the time to read the label. When we checked this product out, we discovered this was a combination of brown rice, red rice, wild rice and quinoa. It was not only whole grain, there was no sodium or sugar, and low on carbohydrates. If you wanted to add some salt or a little avocado oil yourself, you could. We did and it was delicious. In addition, it did cook in ten minutes.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. We only used one of the four bags for ourselves and still have three left, which we will put to good use. The website has many good recipes. I waited quite a while to try out this rice, but now I am sold on its flavor, nutrition and value and will continue to buy it and enjoy. If you try it, I would be interested in hearing your feedback.
Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes. The four grains include:
- Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
- Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
- Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
- Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This is highly recommended in my opinion.
