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!
