Comments about Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice:
Occasionally, some of us will review foods and other items bought from Trader Joe's. These are usually excellent experiences ([with rare exceptions] ) but the fact is that a lot of people don't have T.J.'s situated in their own stomping grounds. For that reason, there may have been many eager would-be rice gourmets who weren't able to sample [Trader Joe's Frozen Organic Brown Rice] or [Jasmine Rice] . Now somebody has shown mercy and come up with delicious rice products which most Americans can just heat for a few minutes in the microwave and enjoy -- ***Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice***.
**What This Stuff Is**
***Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice*** is perfectly cooked and frozen and comes three pouches to a box, ready to eat after three minutes heating. ***Rice Expressions*** is also available in other organic flavors including ***Long Grain (White), TexMex, Thai Jasmine,*** and ***Rice Pilaf***. Prices will vary from region to region but this product is available in all but five Continential United States. (For store locations as well as recipes and interesting facts, see *RiceExpressions.com*.) I bought mine from [Peapod Online Delivery Service] but ***Rice Expressions*** products are also available at all Whole Foods Stores and other upscale groceries. This product is not only organic but also gluten, sodium, and cholesterol free.
Each pouch of ***Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice*** contains two one-cup servings each packing 160 calories with only 11 calories from fat. There are 12 grams Total Fat, zero each Saturated Fat, Trans Fat, Cholesterol, and Sodium, 34 grams Total Carbs, 2.5 grams Dietary Fiber, zero grams Sugars, 3.5 grams Protein, 1% (D.V.) Calcium and 4% Iron.
***Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice*** is simple and versatile. When I bake fish in olive oil and lemon juice, I will pour a little of the hot olive oil over the brown rice which I enjoy as a side dish. ***Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice*** is also great with various stir-fried dishes and maybe even just topped with cooked diced tomatoes and grated fresh Parmesan or Colby-Jack cheese.
In an age when we have become a little anxious about imported foods, it is nice to know that 90% of all the rice consumed in this country is grown right here with the major rice-producing states being Arkansas, California, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, and Missouri. So when we enjoy ***Rice Expressions Organic Brown Rice*** (and the other flavors), for the most part we are buying American and enjoying it as well.
