Uncle Ben's - Bistro Express Entree - Sante Fe Style Chicken Rice

Servings:
Calories 380 Sodium 1,200 mg
Total Fat 5 g Potassium 530 mg
Saturated 1 g Total Carbs 66 g

Monounsaturated 0 g Sugars 1 g
Trans 0 g Protein 16 g

Its not advertised as such but you could also "boil in bag" it - but requires much less water. Usually less than 4 dollars on sale. In a pinch it can be eaten as is - if your whisperlite fails.

Yeah, that Bistro Express looks pretty nutrition free..

But would get the job done, I'm sure.. Will have to taste test.

Bistro is what I meant in the second post, eat it at home.

That Brown Minute Rice is garbage! LOL

No one has mentioned white basmati rice. It cooks quickly, has a delicate flavour and goes with almost any meal. Great in soup. Occasionally when we've run out of breakfast crackers, we cook up a pot of basmati and have it with soy sauce and garlic powder.

"Rice is nice, but beans fill your jeans". Hippy proverb from the 1970's.

Other than it just rhymes, it might mean that there's more food value in beans. If one were to eat only either rice or beans, which could you live on longer?

It'd be hard to calculate, not knowing the nutritional value per gram of dried beans, but they must have come up with the proverb for a reason..

Danger of sharting? LOL

I don't really like the texture of any kind of bean.. I can stomach it if it's mixed up with other stuff (tacos, chili).. Mind you, I like hummus.

Beans AND rice would work well.

I dehydrated a 100oz tin of black beans earlier this summer. They rehydrate easily and are a great accompaniment to almost any meal.

Yeah, black beans would be all right.. I`ll have to try that, maybe with some burritos and ground beef gravel.. Will be on the lookout for a good dehydrator.
