Uncle Ben’s Rice understands busy moms.
My favorite Uncle Ben’s product is the Ready Rice which can be prepared in 90 seconds!
It makes a super easy, healthy side dishes for my whole family!

Ten Ways to enjoy Uncle Ben’s Rice!
1. For a fiber filled risotto use whole grain brown rice; add vegetables – asparagus or zucchini – to increase nutritional value
2. Substitute brown rice for pasta in casseroles and soups.
3. Add cooked whole grain brown rice to your favorite dip; serve with whole grain crackers or cut vegetables for a nutrient packed snack.
