SunWest Organic Rice

I recently joined a membership warehouse club.  The store is massive and carries everything from rice to tires, apples to computers, books to cold medicine.  I discovered SunWest rice as I sojourned the store, glad I found this rice.  Brown rice is an easy and nutritious food to eat.  It is less processed and retains more nutrients than other kinds, supplying vitamin B1 and a good amount of magnesium that helps with blood pressure and muscle cramps.  SunWest mills rice that is organic, grown without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation.  It is also Kosher, made within Jewish law that prohibits foods made with certain animals or animals slaughtered in a certain way, and without a mixture of meat and milk or grape juice.    




Organic Harvest Medley

"A blend of Aromatic Brown Basmati Rice, Wild Rice, Long Grain Red Rice and Calmochi Brown Sweet Rice. The Brown Basmati base gives this blend a rich, nutty flavor and the heirloom red and wild add spice and color to the dish."



Basic Cooking Method

In a heavy sauce pan, combine 1 cup of SunWest Harvest Medley, 2 - 2 1/2 cups of water.

* Rather than using water as the package directions state, I use Wolfgang Puck chicken broth.
It is much more flavorful than using water.

* I use 2 cups of broth, because 2 1/2 cups is too soupy. 

1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter.

*I use olive oil or Smart Balance spread. 

Bring mixture to boil, stir to combine ingredients.

Reduce heat, cover with tight fitting lid and simmer for 30 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed  (cooking times may vary).

Remove from heat; allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Fluff with fork and serve.
