Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White rice review

Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White riceI just tried the yummy new whole grain white rice by Uncle Ben’s and it was very good! I’m not surprised that I liked it, I love eating brown and wild rice, the kids and hubby however are a different story. They’d rather eat plain old white rice. Personally I don’t regular white rice has much flavor. I always have to doctor it up and add something to it to make it taste good.

I was going to add some herbs and seasonings to the Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White rice but was so tired from the busy day we had that I just cooked it exactly like the box told me to and served along with peas, sauteed peppers, onions, mushrooms and Angus round steaks. I de-glazed the pan with 1/2 cup of water and served the drippings drizzled over top the steak and rice. I really enjoyed this new rice. I asked the kids and hubby what they thought and they liked it as well. Super G. said that it wasn’t hard like the brown rice I always try to make him eat and he really liked that it wasn’t mushy but was still soft. We both liked that the rice was large and fluffy. It has a very nice flavor too, kind of like white but way better, I didn’t even need to season it or add butter!

I plan on trying the other four varieties of the whole grain white rice too. It comes in the long grain variety we sampled as well as Taco, Chicken, Sweet Tomato and Broccoli Cheddar. It makes a tasty side dish that only takes 10 minutes to cook and has 45g of whole grains per serving! Have you tried it yet?

  1. My family's favorite way to eat white rice is as a side dish. One of their favorite meals is pork chops cooked in tomato sauce. Everyone loves the tomato sauce over the white rice. Thanks for the review and giveaway!

  3. My son's favorite food is rice. So I serve it alot. It is a equal mix of being in a dish, such like in my curried pineapple chicken to being a side dish, served with pulled pork sandwiches.

    Our family is very big on rice – we use it as the starch in almost all our dinners. Normally, it goes along side the main entree.
