Makeover Your Leftovers In One Minute!


Every week we have at least one or two nights that are leftover night. That means we pull out food that we’ve already cooked that week and we eat whatever was left over from the last meal. Sometimes I don’t mind leftovers and welcome eating my favorite meals but other times I just don’t want the same thing again.

Lucky for me I was introduced to Minute Ready To Serve Rice so I can reinvent dinner on leftover night. Sinisa had beef in gravy last night with mashed potatoes. I’m not a huge fan of mashed potatoes and prefer noodles or rice. Since there was leftover beef I decided to create a dinner that I wanted to eat and I was able to do so in less than two minutes with this new Minute rice product!

These rice bowls are seriously awesome because all you do is take the lid off and stick it in the microwave. There is no adding water or other ingredients to the bowls. The rice cooks for one minute and when you take it out of the microwave you are left with a bowl of fluffy rice.

After I cooked the rice I stuck a piece of beef on a plate and heated it up for 45 seconds. 15 seconds to put the meat on the rice and voila! Daddy’s leftovers made Mommy friendly with rice! :)

It was so delicious! One bowl doesn’t seem like a lot of rice but it’s perfect for a single meal!

I tried the Long Grain White Rice kind but they have other varieties as well.
