I am all about saving a few extra minutes when it comes to dinner. I love spending that extra time with my kids instead of slaving over a hot stove. Thanks to Suddenly Grain Salad I spend last time in the kitchen and my family is still getting a filling meal that is delicious and healthy. Did you know that there are servings per container? That means once you add in some chicken or sausage and there is a wholesome meal. Want to know my husband’s favorite way to it this? He loves to eat it cold.
There are three different flavors; Suddenly Grain Salad Harvest, Suddenly Grain Salad Southwest and Suddenly Grain Salad Tuscan. I went to my local Walmart to pick these up and found them in the same section as all of the other boxed rice mixes. I did not get the Southwest because it did have corn in it and we do not eat corn. The rice comes in a little bag, which is just like the boil in bag rice, you do not open this. Then you cover it in water, boil for around 17 minutes and then add in the dressing mix (along with water and oil) and whatever goody is with your rice and there is the perfect side dish. Now if you would love to turn this into a meal, check out the easy ways you can make these into meals.
•Suddenly Grain Salad Harvest – This would be really great for a wrap. You could add in some grapes, sliced apples, then some chicken with some mayo. Put it all in a wrap and top with your favorite toppings, like lettuce, mozzarella, etc and there is a delicious and healthy meal that the whole family will love.
• Suddenly Grain Salad Tuscan – This is by far my favorite. It taste so good by it self. It has little red peppers, wheat berries, almonts and a tomato parmesan sauce. I made this for dinner tonight. I added in some chicken that has been marinating with some italian dressing. I bet you could also add in a pound of pork or some sausage and this would be really delicious.
What I love most about these is that it is really easy to make and they contain Brown Rice and Quinoa Rice and tons more goodies. My husband wont eat white rice because of his diet so this is perfect for everyone in my entire family.
