Sometimes when I am making a typical meal of protein, vegetable and grain/starch I will use a Near East product for my side dish. They have great products that I like to use when I am in a pinch. They are flavorful and I feel give a decent 4 servings (even if the box says 3 you can easily get 4) and require very little babysitting.
In fact this recipe is so easy you bring some water and oil to a boil, add the rice and season spice and turn down to a simmer until it is finished – approximately 30 minutes later.
These can be found with other boxed rice dishes, typically near the canned goods in your grocery store. I also enjoy their Rice Pilaf and Couscous.
