Trader Joe's Frozen Organic Brown Rice
Trader Joe's Frozen Organic Brown Rice is a staple at my house. I try to always keep some in the freezer. It is so quick and easy to prepare. I recommend taking the rice out of the little plastic pouches and putting it in a microwave safe bowl with a plate on top of it when microwaving. Studies show that cooking foods in plastics can release harmful cancer-causing toxins.
I use this rice as a quick side dish with fish or poultry at dinner. Sometimes I will warm some up and add chopped avocado and tomato, olive oil, a little lemon juice and salt for a quick lunch. You can also add any fresh herbs you have on hand like cilantro or basil. Add a can of black beans and salsa and wrap in a whole-grain tortilla for a quick burrito. Warm it up with the milk of your choice and a little cinnamon and honey for a great alternative to oatmeal in the morning. Stir in some fruit and nuts for a complete breakfast. The possibilities are endless with this convenient product!
