Rice Pudding & Minute® Ready to Serve Rice

Tracking Pixel
This post is brought to you by Minute® Ready to Serve Rice and Shabby Chic Boho.

I am recovering from the flu/bronchitis/pneumonia and even though my body doesn’t want to cooperate, I still have meal preparations to get through. We eat a lot of rice and not just because it’s delicious and satisfying, but I’ve always heard that white foods (egg whites, baked potato, popcorn, rice… etc…) gives much needed energy, so, when I’m drained, like I have been from my month long illness, I cook more rice than normal. Rice is a really good source of complex carbohydrates (which basically means high fiber foods) which provides the “good” energy. Sugar boost = bad energy, lol.

Minute® Ready to Serve Rice

Thanks to Minute® Ready to Serve Rice, I’ve cut down the time it takes to prepare my rice. That means less standing and stirring for me and trust me, right now, it’s worth everything to me as I’m trying to recover and get my strength back. I mentioned that I eat a lot of rice and by that I mean that I eat it with meals and even for a snack. In fact, I had a rice snack mid morning because I didn’t feel like I could even make it to lunch without heading back to bed. Of course I not only made it till lunch time but I’m still up and about, trying to get a little organized and caught up on things I haven’t been able to do.

I snuck a screenshot in (below) to show all of the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice flavors you can expect to find at your supermarket. I bought mine at Harveys but I’m sure you can find it wherever you shop. When I’m feeling better I’m going to check all of the supermarkets in our area to make sure they stock Minute® Ready to Serve Rice (if they don’t I’ll ask that they do) because it so easy to fix and the best part of all is that I don’t have to wash extra dishes from making it. I don’t even have to add water to it.

Ready to Serve Rice

I’m trying to eat more wholesome foods this year because I put on a few pounds last year that I can’t seem to shed. I feel like I’m giving my body what it needs to kickstart a healthier New Year by eating Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. If you are looking for some great stir in ideas for your Minute® Ready to Serve Rice, check out the link provided. OR, try it with a little milk, butter and cinnamon for a delicious rice pudding.

    I never really had a rice pudding before – heck I don’t even know why but I never tried one myself as well. I can’t believe it seems pretty easy to do but I never tried it. I have to try it one of these days or at least… I should be able to give it a try this year as I spend more time inside the kitchen, lol!

    I am not a huge fan of rice pudding but I love those Ready to Serve rice cups. I send them with my husband’s lunch all the time and he says they help fill him.

    Oh this looks so yummy! I haven’t had rice pudding in ages I know! I bet my kids would love this! I love the idea of mess free too! I didn’t know they had rice cups I will surely pick up a pack or two the next time I’m out thanks for the great tips

    I love rice budding, but I rarely prepare it at home as it takes a lot of time to prepare during my busy work schedules. This ‘Minute Ready to serve’ rice budding seems to be a very convenient one. Will have to check this out. Thanks for sharing.

    I am all about easy side dishes or meals that require little prep. I don’t have time to set big meals up! Anyway, the minute rice is already one of my favorites, but I’ve never tried it this way before. It looks really creamy and delicious!

    I love rice pudding! I loved it when my mom made rice for dinner and I would secretly wish their would be leftovers so she could make it.

    I haven’t ever tried rice pudding before! It was one of my mom’s favorites though so I want to try it. This looks easy enough!

    By the end of last year I changed to long white rice. It was a delightful discovery indeed. It´s funny how we always buy the same just because we are used to it. I will try new options this year. Thanks for your info on rice options.

    I do not think I have ever tried rice pudding before. However, I love quick and easy meals since my weekdays are so busy. I am definitely going to be looking into this for sure.

    Rice is also very popular for meals here. It’s nice that they have minute ready to serve rice that makes the cooking process faster and gives you more options on the flavors.

      I’ve wondered a time or two if I’m going to recover, lol. It’s lingering. Thanks.

    Rice is always a pain in the butt to make, but this looks so easy I might try it out. Thanks for sharing, it looks like a great product!

      I love how easy this is to make. Just take the top off and put in the microwave for 60 seconds. Nothing to measure, nothing to add.

    One of my worst habits is binging on junk food when I am too lazy to cook a proper meal. This is the perfect balance between “ready-made” and quality. I like the fact that it comes in different flavours and is something I won’t feel guilty eating. I love rice and the fact that it gives me energy (especially on those long nights of studying) is just an added bonus! http://NOMONEYWILLTRAVEL.COM

    Ooh…cinnamon. There’s an idea I never thought of. I am such a huge rice lover, and so is most of my family, and we try to come up with new ways to give it flavor too :) Hope you feel better soon

    I love rice pudding as it reminds me of being a little girl again at home. We don’t have this brand in the UK but it looks delicious!

    What an awesome dessert option! Quick and easy, just the way I like it! It sounds delicious as well!

    I’m embarassed to say that I’ve never tried rice pudding let alone have I ever made it :( I think I should give it a go!

    1. Sara-Jayne

      January 8, 2015 at 5:41 am

      You really should try it! It’s one of the simplest desserts to make and here in England we generally have it when it’s cold outside and we need comfort food. I think we have ours more viscous than you all in the USA, but it’s a preference thing. My mum used to make them for my dad when they first were married and he said they were either like soup or you could slice them like a pie…. Mum stopped making them after that ;)

        The kids love it and they don’t even know I make it with rice. Lol at your mum and dad ha.

    We usually cook rice the long way out of habit, but these would be great for quick lunches or snacks. I haven’t had rice pudding in SUCH a long time–this looks SO good! I’m going to have to whip some up soon. :)

    That rice pudding looks DELICIOUS. I love how simple it is to make as well. I wasn’t aware that rice was such a good food to eat, though I do love eating it. I don’t make it often, mostly because I’m too lazy to make it, so I love the instant rice option. I’ll have to check these out in the stores!

  22. Courtney

    January 7, 2015 at 3:33 pm

    Too funny!!! I was just in my kitchen looking at food options and I was staring at a box of rice! Maybe I will give this a try with it ;)

      I hope you do because it’s really good.

    I’ve never actually tried instant rice before. I don’t cook a lot of rice at home, but my daughter’s love it. This sounds like a great product to keep on hand to have some rice ready quickly for their meals.

      Joy, Like you I don’t make rice all that often. My husband is pretty conscious about the calories we put into our bodies, and I know that rice has a ton of them. It is great that this rice is ready to serve though- could be so easy for whipping up a quick snack like rice pudding. Probably much better for you than a chocolate bar, which is what I usually go for!

      I had never made instant rice before until after my back surgery. I bought everything I could that would save me time from standing because trying to stand or move in my back brace was painful. And now, when I want a snack, I add a little butter and parsley to it or I go for the rice pudding, and in seconds I have a quick and filling hot snack.

    For me most recipes i see make it in my recipe book if they are easy to make like this one, thanks for sharing.

    This sound amazing! I love that it’s easy and quick.

    Rice pudding is soooooo yummy! We can’t have it very often because we’re trying to eat healthier and we end up eating the whole batch of this in one night. lol. Definitely good for an occasional treat, though.

    I love rice pudding, def one of my favourites. It is like a comfort food for me

    I love the pudding rice. But I missed the minute ready to serve. Thanks for this because I really want this.

    I haven’t tried it with minute rice and in fact I’ve never made rice pudding. But it’s definitely something to keep in mind if I do make it!

    You know, it’s so funny, I never thought of using Minute Rice to make rice pudding! My mom is a huge rice pudding fan, and I usually buy it just for her (I have a weird thing about rice). These little cups are just right for making it for a snack for just one! Thanks for the awesome tips!

  31. Rebecca Swenor

    I didn’t know that white foods give you energy which I find interesting. I love minute rice and always get it when I buy rice because of the short cooking time. I will have to check the site out. The milk, butter and cinnamon added to the rice sounds really good. I love rice pudding and haven’t had it in a long time. Thanks for sharing.

  32. Samantha Angell

    January 7, 2015 at 6:03 am

    Oh, that rice pudding sounds so good! I’ll have to pick up some of the ready to serve rices once I return home to the US- would be so great and save so much time cooking!
