Lunch or Dinner is served. Now that we are back in the swing of things at home with school, homework, baseball practice and art class it gets kinda busy around here. Giving my family a nutritious meal for dinner is key. When I received this opportunity to partner up with Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. I was excited; because they have such a variety of different rices to offer. We usually buy the brown rice but when I found out they had this multi grain medley with rice, quinoa and brown rice I was ecstatic. Some people struggle with making rice but minute rice ready to serve makes it easy for you.
This rice recipe is one that I grew up eating; especially when we were sick or in the cold months. It’s a Brazilian chicken and rice soup. It’s delicious and my kids love it. Instead of using the traditional rice I used the multi grain medley blend which made it very wholesome and quick for a soup. Dinner was done in 15 minutes.
