Whole Grain White Rice, From Uncle Ben's!

We eat a lot of rice, but not just any rice. We eat white rice. Not the healthiest choice. In fact, the only time I'll eat brown rice is when it's white rice with a little soy sauce. Sad isn't it? When I first found out that Uncle Ben's was offering a Whole Grain White Rice, I was eager to try it. It is healthier and as long as it tastes great, I would happily buy it instead. I've made the switch with other foods and so far, so good. Thanks to Mom Central, I took part in Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice Blog Tour! I was sent a few aprons and boxes of their new rice to share with friends and family. A few nights ago, I tried out Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice for the first time. I decided to serve it pretty plain, using only a few seasonings. If we liked it plain, we would certainly love it cooked in other ways! I mixed in a pinch of salt, Smoked Spanish Paprika, and garlic-the same seasoning that I used on my chicken. It took about 20 minutes to cook. It looked very similar to white rice and it tasted even better. Logan and Sam both loved the rice and Logan even had a second serving. Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice passed the test with our family! Visit Uncle Ben's and discover all of their great products, including a few flavored varieties that look mouth-watering good!

To Disclose: “I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Uncle Ben’s and received samples to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
