Whole Grain Brown Rice Mixes

The brown rice mixes have more whole grain fiber and nutrition. They also take longer to cook, and produce a chewier product—pleasantly al dente, but different from the soft rice most people are accustomed to. We tried the recipe using the standard measurements as well as adding an incremental quarter-cup of water suggested for those who like a fluffier rice. While the extra water made a slight difference, it’s still al dente rice. We actually liked “the whole grain” texture.

You’ll notice the yellow Whole Grain stamp on the bottom left side of the box, assuring you that the product is 100% whole grain.

Garden Vegetable Brown Rice Mix. Flavorful and colorful—it looks like Spanish rice with corn kernels, peas and bits of bell pepper—this rice has a mild peppery finish. A good everyday choice, and also works well with Mexican foods.

Roasted Garlic & Organic Olive Oil Brown Rice Mix. The most basic of the mixes, it is plain but very satisfying.

Wild Mushroom & Herb Brown Rice Mix. The mushroom flavor is subtle here. It’s fine as is, but adding our own dried mushrooms to the pot (and at a separate tasting, adding sautéed fresh mushrooms to the cooked product) made this dish even more exciting.

After making your first box, you’ll see how easy it is to enjoy whole grains at dinner. Half a cup equals one portion. If you like rice and eat a full cup’s worth, you’ve taken care of two of your three daily portions of whole grains.
