    I have never actually tried minute rice, it think the brown appeals to me the most, I will have to give it a try

  2. Alexandra robertson

    Love it for quick dinners! We use the brown rice! Easy, quick, and a little bit healthier than the white.

  3. Stephanie E

    I’ve never used Minute Rice and am not familiar with their products. But after seeing this recipe, maybe I’ll give the whole grain brown rice a try!
