Cooked long grain rice with mushrooms.
Uncle Ben's Express rice takes just 2 minutes in a microwave, or around 3 minutes in a saucepan.
Gently steamed in a microwave-safe pouch for maximum freshness and flavour. Easy to open, quick to cook, great tasting and no washing up afterwards!
Available in a range of flavours.
This has to be one of my most favourite of the Uncle Ben's range. The mushrooms aren't too overwhelming and they most definitely are perfectly tender and juicy. At first I thought this might be too mushroomy like other mushroom based meals i've had before, however this was not the case.
While I can certainly see this as a great side dish, I prefer to eat this as a standalone meal and a great and satisfying meal it is.
Easily my favourite of all the express rices so far.
Rip 'n' heat 'n' eat - that simple!
As a vegetarian it is always welcome to find heat and eat vegetarian dishes - and tasty ones at that - My only minor gripe is that the vegetarian symbol isn't more obvious. A small black symbol on the back of the pack that I totally missed even when scanning all the ingredients for anything non-vegetarian. I did, however, find it by chance later.
Naturally, Mushroom Rice is a winner and can be served alone or as a side dish with other foods. One can add other things to it to bulk it out - other vegetables, eggs (meats if you are so inclined).
This is one tasty treat to keep in the store cupboard and one I will keep well hidden from my carnivorous wife because - IT'S MINE!
This is a very easy meal to prepare. My 6yr old daughter is rapt that she can make it by herself.
The rice doesn't stick together, its very fluffy.
We have tried a number of these and have found they have a very subtle flavor and although great on their own, would be very nice with some added meat/fish and some veggies.
Hubby is going to take some of these away with him next time he goes hunting. They will take up little room in his back and he doesn't need lots of water to cook.
