Salads are some of my favorite go to recipes for a quick and easy meal. Sometimes I want the flavors of one of my favorites like this Glazed Pecan, Cherry and Feta Cheese Salad but only have the appetite for a snack. That’s when I decided to combine a few of the bright flavors with a serving of Minute® Ready to Serve Whole Grain Brown Rice to create this super easy, snack size Glazed Pecan, Cherry and Feta Cheese Raspberry Rice Bowl.
Getting back into a routine after the holidays can be tough. Minute® Ready to Serve Rice offers the ease I need to take some great tasting snacks to the office and get me back into watching my portion sizes after indulging in Philly cheese steaks and Wawa hoagies in PA over the holiday.
It’s so easy to pop one of the individual single-serve cups into the microwave. In just 60 seconds I have wholesome, fully cooked brown rice ready to stir in my favorite raspberry pecan vinaigrette. I stir the dressing into the rice when it’s fresh out of the microwave so the rice easily absorbs the sweet and tangy flavors of the dressing.
Once the dressing is stirred into the rice, I add diced glazed pecans, dried cherries, and crumbled Feta cheese. This mini rice bowl is the perfect for a quick snack to keep me feeling satisfied so I can focus on work and not feeling hungry.
Stashing a few containers of Minute® Ready to Serve Rice in the pantry gives me a grab and go option without sacrificing flavor. I can almost taste my next idea of making a bacon and egg brown rice bowl for breakfast.
I can’t wait to experiment with more ingredients to add some excitement to my packed breakfasts and lunches with these deliciously easy Minute® Ready to Serve Rice Stir-In recipe ideas here. Plus with the multiple varieties like Brown & Wild Rice and Multi-Grain Medley, Jasmine Rice, White Rice, Chicken Rice Mix, Yellow Rice Mix, and Fried Rice Mix. The combinations are endless!
