The Ultimate Side Dish
You can never go wrong with a side dish of rice, and it is so versatile it can be served with practically anything. Whether you choose traditional, plain white rice or other alternatives such as whole grain brown rice or rice and quinoa blends, you can boost the natural flavour in many ways.
Luckily, with Minute Rice®, it’s all about quality and making your life easier. This effortless 10-Minute Vegetable and Rice Medley is an excellent example of how to make an exciting side dish in 10 minutes or less. Add a fried egg on rice and get a protein boost or serve it on the side of pan-seared chicken breasts for a chicken and rice delicacy.
You can add much extra flavour by substituting your favourite broths instead of water for your rice. If you want something sweeter, use fruit juices like apple, pineapple or orange juice instead of water.
Other typical flavour boosters come from adding fresh herbs or seasonings to the water when boiling — from mint and basil to ground cumin or cinnamon, almost anything goes! A splash of your favourite flavoured oil is another way to boost flavour.
