Having a box of Uncle Ben's rice is a staple in many Canadian homes, including mine. We often have rice as a side dish - at least once or twice a week. Rice is loved by everyone and it's nutritious and delicious. Uncle Ben's is a trusted name in quality and taste.
Getting to know Uncle Ben's
I admit to being a creature of habit. I know what works for me and what works for my family. Yet, with Uncle Ben's there are choices. I tend to go with Wholegrain Brown or (what I grew up on) Uncle Ben's Instant Rice. There is nothing wrong with having these staples in our home, though with all the choices it's time to shake up our dinner time routine a bit.
Now, in the line up of products available are New Uncle Ben's Bistro Express, quick and easy side dishes. These are perfect for those busy family evenings when time is of the essence, yet, those evenings which we don't want to sacrifice nutrition. Uncle Ben's Bistro Express are free of preservatives and without artificial colour or flavour.
In the coming week, I'm planning to whip up a recipe or two using Uncle Ben's rice products. I'll even share one with you next week. In the mean time, take a look at the recipe inspiration at Uncle Ben's - you may just be inspired to shake up your dinner time routine, too! Or, better yet, get your mini chef into the kitchen to help with a recipe.
