Wild rice blend


Rice…Who doesn’t love rice? (That was a hypothetical question by the way). Personally, I love rice for its versatility. It can be made in a variety of ways and eaten with numerous soups, sauces and even as dessert! I’m going to do a bit of over generalization here but most Africans (Nigerians in particular) seem to be stuck on 1 kind of rice… ‘white rice’. Over the last few years my palette has been exposed to various kinds of rice and I love them all! Basmati, Jasmine, Wild rice, Brown Rice etc. Lately I’ve been trying to stay away from the typical default long-grain white rice and I’ve been experimenting with sauces and dishes to compliment the other types…

Here’s a quick how-to dish with Rice a Roni’s Brown rice and Wild rice blend:

Wild rice blend with chicken, shrimp and pepper

Ingredients:

Rice a Roni Long Grain & Wild Rice, Cabbage, green and red bell pepper, white onion, scallions, carrot, mung bean sprouts, Shrimp, Chicken, House of Tsang stir saigon chili  stirfry sauce.

Spices:

Garlic, Salt, Pepper, Bouillon cube.

Method:

I chopped all my ingredients…i.e meat and veggies into small pieces. I stir fried the chicken first with light oil on medium heat in a Pot this time instead of a pan (to allow more room for sauce), I added the shrimp when the chicken was almost done, and the vegetables were added last.

Next I added the Stir fry sauce until all the meat and veggies were completely coated (This takes about half the bottle).

I added 1 cup of water, and then the spices…garlic, salt, pepper and bouillon cube…I used a garlic chili pepper base, you can add whatever pepper you like such as Siracha or Chili pepper, or you can skip it all together depending on what you prefer. I like my foods spicy hence the extra pepper.

Meanwhile…The Rice A Roni is easy to prepare. I was cooking it at the same time but I forgot to take pictures. The instructions on the back of the packet are pretty straightforward and it comes with a sauce packet. You boil the rice in a pot with the sauce added until the rice is done.

VOILA!

    This is lovely, Teets. I’ve always believed food should look good, smell good then taste good. Bcos i love to take it all in before i start eating. Food is an experience. And we can always experiment and make recipes our own. Will try this version of your sauce too. Thank you.

    its been white rice and (a few times) basmati rice for me. I’ve never tried brown rice. Looks really good though; maybe I should diversify too.
